Camping in the Caribbean

stress-free-bar.jpgThe island of Jost Van Dyke is quite a bit off the beaten track, but if it's a low cost Caribbean vacation you're after, pitching your tent at The White Bay Campground should fit the bill.

To get there hop on a ferry from Tortola in the BVI or St John in the USVI to Jost Van Dyke. From St. John, an American owned island, you'll have to pass through customs as soon as you land in Tortola. If you are on a direct ferry, you will stay in transit here for only a few minutes. It's only 20 minutes from West End (the ferry dock) in Tortola to Jost.

Ferries arrive in Great Bay, the main settlement, and although it's only a fifteen minute walk to the campground on White Bay, there will be taxis waiting at dockside. Upon arrival, sit yourself down at Ivan's Stress-Free Bar and ponder the possibilities: a tent on the beach, or basic accommodation in one of Ivan's 17 no-frills cabins.

True to the convivial and communal atmosphere that Ivan has created here he encourages everyone to bring their own instruments and move and groove to their five day Music Festival during Christmas and New Year's.

Tip: Just up the beach from Ivan's are numerous colorful beach bars and restaurants. Most of the time you'll find a party going on along with live music at one or more of the beach-side establishments. The chow is good too.
