Fodor's Expert Review Sea Crest Inn

Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, VG1160, British Virgin Islands

Sea Crest offers the cheapest lodging on Jost Van Dyke, save for camping, and the location is smack-dab in the hub of Great Harbour. This two-story white building with red trim has four one-bedroom apartments, each equipped with basics like a refrigerator, gas range, microwave oven, cable TV, and air-conditioning. An alfresco dining area offers lovely views of Great Harbour; breakfast, lunch, and happy hour are offered here. All units are neatly furnished with soothing green bedspreads and curtains and cool tile floors. From the balconies you get sweeping views of the beach, where a half-dozen bars and restaurants are within a five minute or less walking distance. It's also fun to watch the comings and goings of sailboats and ferries in the harbor below. Great Harbour does rock, especially on weekend nights, and the thumping bass from live bands at the beach bars may entice you to join the party. Heavy soundproof curtains do a good job of preserving the quiet for those who would rather sleep. If you need tips on where to party, eat, or sightsee, just ask the charming proprietor, Jost native Ivy Chinnery Moses.
