White Bay

White Bay is why you come to Jost Van Dyke. Well, it's why WE came anyway.

Walking from Grand Harbour to White Bay includes some steep ups and downs. And no shade. So it’s a good thing it isn’t a long walk. We went to Soggy Dollar and had a couple of Painkillers at the place they were invented and an Island Hopper IPA. One of the staff came by and thanked us for our support. We have never had so many people thank us for being on vacation! The place was pretty hoppin’. They had a hook and ring game and a cornhole game. We took a safari taxi back. It was open back but we rode in the cab. Our driver Mark asked where we were staying and was pleased that Ali Baba had guests. It was $10 for the taxi.

The banners for my two schools, Michigan State and North Carolina, were next to each other at the Soggy Dollar!

On our second visit to White Bay we took a taxi both ways and spent the day at Hendo’s Hideout, which is right next to Soggy Dollar. We got free chairs under their newly planted replacement palm trees and Island Hoppin’ IPA. For lunch, we finally had the conch fritters I’d been waiting for all trip, and mahi sandwiches and fries. We were just in time for our taxi back at 1:30. (You can arrange a time to go back in a taxi, or take your chances. They show up pretty regularly at the beach bar area to pick up anyone who’s ready to go.)
