Jost Van Dyke (colloquially referred to as Jost or JVD) is the smallest of the 4 main islands of British Virgin Islands (BVI), measuring 8 km2 (3 ml2). It rests in the northern part of the archipelago of Virgin Islands, situated in the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Jost Van Dyke is about 8 km (5 miles) to the north of Saint John and 8 km (5 miles) to the northwest of Tortola. 

Like a lot of the neighboring islands, Jost Van Dyke is volcanic in origin and mountainous. Its highest point is Majohnny Hill at 1,053 ft (321 m). The total area of Jost Van Dyke Island is 8 km2 (3.1 ml2). In 2010 its population was 300.

Jost Van Dyke welcomes numerous visitors. It is accessible by private boats and ferry service from Saint Thomas, Saint John and Tortola. The most frequent destination is Belle Vue (Great Harbour). The beach around the harbour is lined with small restaurants and bars. Since late 1960s, Foxy's Bar has been a popular spot for Caribbean boaters. Foxy's and the other Great Harbour bars host a modest crowd and are filled with a wealth of partiers on New Year's Eve (known locally as "Old Year’s Night").

Great Harbour is among the busiest ports in the British Virgin Islands: in 2008, about 7,000 boats cleared through island's port. Today, yachting tourism is economy's mainstay.

Another famous beach bar on Jost Van Dyke Island is the Soggy Dollar Bar, situated in nearby White Bay. The Soggy Dollar Bar is reputedly the birthplace of the famous drink known as the Painkiller. Soggy Dollar is appropriately named as when built there was neither dock nor road. Today there is a road from Belle Vue, but no dock yet. To reach the beach where the Soggy Dollar Bar is located, it is common for boaters to anchor off the beach and swim to shore, paying for drinks with wet money.
