We are staying at the Westin St John march 18-23, I would like to do Jost van Dyke either before or after this ,Any suggestion ? is it worth spending 2 nights there ?
Would fly in Saturday March 16 and stay Saturday and Sunday on Jost van dyke, ferry Monday AM to the Westin and then we need to stay somewhere else in St Thomas . Any suggestions I would love to hear from you
My husband and I have been traveling to St John every year for the past 7 and this upcoming 2013 will be 8. We always spend 2 weeks on STJ and 2 weeks on Jost. Absolutely love Jost. We stay at Ivan's Stress Free Campground. We rent a cottage on the beach. It's four walls, a king size bed, fridge, fan and of course electricity. We wouldn't miss this part of our trip for anything. Jost is completely different than STJ, it's pretty much untouched by man with the exception of some really great beach bars and restaurants. Jost isn't for the traveler that wants tons to do as there isn't any tourist shops (there are local places to buy t-shirts and such), there is 2 very small grocery stores for getting simple staples. There are great people on the island that you can hang out with. Bring a good book and the idea of just hangin' out in a hammock or beach chair.
If you want more info I'd be happy to share.
Hi, bevhud! If you're still looking for places to stay on St. Thomas, I can give you some info. on the cottage we stayed in up north on Hull Bay. It was wonderful up there and I would highly recommend it. Just let me know!
i recommend spending some time on jost. i've been traveling down to st john for about 6 years now and each extend my trip a few days so i can spend time on both st john and jost. i stay at the sandcastle (soggy dollar bar) when i'm on jost. have fun!

The direct ferry from STT to JVD is limited but don't let that scare you away from going to JVD, you can always get a ferry to Tortol;a and then over to JVD, it takes a few minutes longer but you can clear customs on Tortolla and then head right over to JVD. We've made the trip from STT to JVD in the late afternoon/evening as well as the earlier ones. It's possible and well worth the trip.
