Little Harbour (Jost Van Dyke)

Posted by Naz on April 22, 2018

Little harbour lies just to the east of the Great Harbor. The anchorage is quite easy to navigate for BVI charter yachts, as it is small and well protected. The marked channel with red and green buoys at the entrance will guide you directly to the harbour. The inside depth is 8-10m. while steering your charter yacht, you just need to be mindful of the shoals on both sides of the harbour, other than that passage through it is relatively easier than most. A big portion of the bay is associated with paid moorings, which is managed by the restaurants (VHF16).
