My First Visit To White Bay Villas

The first time I went to Jost Van Dyke to stay, 1998, I stayed in White Bay, at the Plantation Villa. At that time, there was only the Plantation Villa and it was the owner’s house. I’d never been there during the day.

The first time I went to Jost Van Dyke to stay, 1998, I stayed in White Bay, at the Plantation Villa. At that time, there was only the Plantation Villa and it was the owner’s house. I’d never been there during the day. I had been there for New Year’s Eve 1995 for the Olde Year’s Eve party, traveling from Tortola. WHAT A PARTY, by the way!! So, I’d never seen it during the day.

When we got off the ferry, in Great Harbour, it was night time. We went straight to the Villa. Since we had been traveling all day, we were tired and went to bed early. The next day, I woke up and the sight I saw, I had never seen in my entire life. The Caribbean’s crystal clear blue, blue water, powdery white sand and a bright clear blue sky to compliment the beach and the sea.

Back then, there were no cabs or jeeps to rent. So we walked everywhere. We walked from White Bay Villas to the Bubbly Pool. It was quite the adventure! It took about an hour and a half to walk there. It was July and very warm, but we made it with lots of water. The Bubbly Pool was so fun and unique. It was like swimming in a glass of Champaign! The goat path was awesome too and we hoped we were going the right way, because there was no one to ask and no cell phones back then. We made it, had a great, fun day and walked all the way back to the Villa. I love how you can eat and drink to your heart’s content and never gain an ounce!
