White Bay Campground

Campground in White Bay

It’s one of the Virgin Islands’ most popular stops for backpackers. Ivan, the owner, mixes it up by offering bare sites (the best, right on the beach, where you can string your hammock between sea-grape trees), equipped platform tents (with beds and linens) and cabins (electricity plus beds and linens). Everyone shares the communal kitchen and cold-water bathhouse.

The tents, cabins and facilities are very bare bones. Bring insect repellent and toilet paper. Ivan also rents a couple of apartments with private bathrooms (from US$150).
