This month, I am opening the archive and republishing some of the best posts to celebrate the third anniversary of HeatherSerody.com. Exploring Jost Van Dyke was originally published April 3, 2013.
Snorkeling at Sandy Spit and a beachside lunch at One Love.
We set out early in the small boat for Jost Van Dyke, (pronounced ‘yos') located just northeast of St. Thomas and directly north of St. Johns. Our first destination was tiny cay (island) called Sandy Spit located on the Eastern shore of Jost Van Dyke (JVD) and across from Tortola. The scenery along the way – St. Johns in particular – was spectacular, especially for my Florida boys who are not used to seeing elevation of any kind.
We anchored on the leeward side of Sandy Spit which is also a nice little spot for off shore snorkeling for kids. The boys snorkeled for about an hour while I swam ashore and read and snapped these photos with my iPhone. The island takes five minutes to circumnavigate. The beach is gorgeous and view of Tortola in the distance, majestic.
