Jost Lime & Dine: The Ultimate Vibe — Escape to Culinary Bliss in the British Virgin Islands

The Caribbean is a realm of laid-back vibes, stunning beaches, and culinary delights. In the heart of this paradise lies a gem tucked away in the British Virgin Islands named Jost Van Dyke, and locally known as ‘Paradise City’ and called ‘Jost’ for short. Embracing the spirit of community and gastronomy, Jost Van Dyke’s restaurants and bars have united to kick off an exclusive vibe on January 6th: Jost Lime & Dine.

Picture this: 12 select evenings in January and February, where the clock stretches longer, the air crackles with live music, and the scent of sumptuous meals drifts through the beachfront. This event is a summon to indulge, relax, and relish in the essence of the Caribbean lifestyle.

The premise is simple yet irresistible. Depart from West End at 6 PM and return at 10:45 PM – four additional hours added to your night of revelry. And the best part? The return fare is covered by the BVI Tourist Board for those with reservations at participating establishments, a steal at just $20.

This isn’t merely about dining; it’s an immersion into the soul of Jost Van Dyke. A ferry ride takes you on a tantalizing journey through Great Harbour, White Bay, Diamond Cay, and Little Harbour, offering a taste of each locale’s culinary prowess and entertainment.

But what exactly is ‘limin’? It’s a quintessential Caribbean concept, embodying the art of doing nothing while sharing food, drinks, laughter, and conversations. It’s an invitation to chill, unwind, and savor the moment, an integral part of the local culture.

Jost Lime & Dine encapsulates this spirit, inviting visitors to join in this cultural experience. It’s a rendezvous with the essence of the British Virgin Islands, an opportunity to soak in the ambiance of Jost Van Dyke’s finest establishments, including renowned spots like Foxy’s Bar & Grill, Soggy Dollar Bar, Ivan’s Stress Free Bar & Campground, and more.
