    I think Foxy’s is overrated. The people who work there are not that friendly, the sandfleas are awful, and the food is nothing special. The lines are long, for sure, but go fast. Generally, though, it is not a super experience.

    Sue – I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who feels that way!

      February 2010 was our first encounter with FOXY’S. I wasn’t sure if the fleas we brought back to our boat were from the mangey (?) dog or sand fleas…In either case the second half of our week was REALLY itchy…I have scars from the bites.

    I agree that Foxy’s is overrated. We were first there about 12 years ago and even then the staff was not the friendliest and on the second stop a few years later, not much had changed in the act, etc.

    The Soggy Dollar at Jost Van Dyke has really changed, and we understand it has changed since electricity has come to the area. When first there, it was a quiet deserted strip of beautiful beach with just people from anchored sailboats and visitors at the small resort. That visit was at least 12 years ago. The most recent visit in 2008 was just as you experienced: small boats, daytrippers from Puerto Rico had taken over the beach and there was too much of the frat house vibe. We were anchored overnight and evening was back to quiet and serenity when the daytrippers left. It is still a beautiful area that I hope to return to another time.

      @Marion – Jost van Dyke is a gorgeous island so I can see it having a totally different feel when the frat boys go home :) Thanks for sharing!

    The BVI isn’t just about Jost Van Dyke but rather about the over all experience. Foxy’s is a bit overhyped and the Soggy Dollar is now the in thing, but it is necessary to experience the many islands that make up the BVI. Peter Island, Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada are just a few. The thing is that sailing in the BVI is like skiing in Aspen or Vail. It just can’t be beat. Even the small island of Marine Cay is a must see. We have done BVI six times and it never gets old. on one trip we were coming in to Soper’s hole when a pod of dolphins escorted us into the harbor. you need to see more than Foxy’s or the Soggy Dollar. There is just so much more!!

      I guess for newbies you gotta take folks to meet Foxy and hang at the Soggy Dollar……..but after that your right see the BVI. There are many places that are idlyic and serene – its best to keep those places a secreat!

    Best bar, by far in BVI is Cow Wreck on Anegada. . .people,food, drinks, beach, water. . . .ALL UNBELIEVABLE! Big Bamboo, Potter’s by the Sea & Neptune’s give Cow Wreck a run for their money, too!
