Although Jost measures just four by three miles, the island is rich in history. It’s been home to Arawak Indians, Caribs, Dutch, Africans and English. William Thorton, architect of the US Capitol, was born here. And John Coakley Lettsome, founder of the London Medical Society, was born on nearby Little Jost.

You can get here by boat, water taxi, private charter or ferry service from West End, Tortola, St. John, or St. Thomas. Even if you come just for a day, you can take in many of Jost’s attractions.
