Once the home of sugar-cane plantations, the island is surrounded by a necklace of tiny islets among which Little Jost Van Dyke. Although a small island, Jost Van Dyke was blessed with three beautiful bays. White Bay situated in the western part of the island has few inhabitants while Great Harbor is the centre of the life on the island. With a ferry dock and a Customs House, Great Harbor boasts with restaurant "Foxy's".
