New Horizon Ferry to Jost Van Dyke
For travelers from around the world, Jost Van Dyke—or simply JVD—stands as a symbol of casual freedom. In Great Harbour, take the short stroll from the New Horizon Ferry Services dock through the quaint town. Soft sand and soil lines the road to Foxy’s, where you’ll likely meet the man himself, always ready with a hearty smile and an offbeat joke. Or, rent a car and explore the tiny but rich island, from the trails on its northeast side to the world famous bars that line the pristine beach at White Bay. Stop by Soggy Dollar and have one of their famous painkillers; share stories with wanderlust tourists and yachties from around the world. For the adventure seekers, why not rent a four-wheeler and explore the off-road? Whatever your fancy, JVD aims to please.
