Getting Here

If coming from the U.S. two gateway airports: San Juan, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, serve the British Virgin Islands. If coming through San Juan there are connecting flights to Tortola's airport on Beef Island, the nearest airport to Jost Van Dyke. 

In addition to San Juan and St. Thomas travellers from Europe, Central or South America have the option of flying into Antigua and St Martin with connections to Beef Island. 

After flying into St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Island or Beef Island, Tortola you will need to take a combination of ferry and water taxi to Jost Van Dyke. If arriving at St. Thomas' airport catch a taxi to Charlotte Amalie or Red Hook terminals to catch a ferry to West End, Tortola, where you will then take a prearranged water taxi to Sandy Ground Estates. Alternatively you can catch a ferry to Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, however a further journey by land taxi to Sandy Ground will be necessary.  

If you are flying into Beef Island, Tortola, you will need to take a taxi from the airport to ferry terminal West End and then a water taxi directly to Sandy Ground Estates.
