Jost Van Dyke
British Virgin Islands
Concierge.com's insider take:
Sandy Spit and Sandy Cay. You need a boat, but it's worth it for these two tiny dots that are practically all beach off the east coast of the island. Sandy Spit is the desert island you've seen in cartoons.
White Bay Beach. World-class palm-fringed sands, snorkeling reefs (you have to anchor offshore and swim in, so it doesn't work for tots), and beach bars are what this beach on the southern coast is known for.
Great Harbour Beach. Yes, it's the great beach at the main harbor on the southern coast of the island. Though not the most deserted, the big, sandy horseshoe has the best water sports and casual restaurants.
