Little Jost Van Dyke
Little Jost Van Dyke (colloquially, "Little Jost") is one of the British Virgin Islands. It is a small island on the east end of the island of Jost Van Dyke. Like Jost Van Dyke, it takes its name from the Dutch privateer Joost van Dyk. It is the location of the Diamond Cay National Park, which includes the nesting grounds of wild boobies, terns and pelicans.
Dive sites can be found at Twin Towers, two large rock formations rising from 90 feet.
Fauna and flora
The island is presently uninhabited, but was the site of an eighteenth-century Quaker colony. It is arguably most famous for being the island where John C. Lettsome (1744—1815), founder of the Medical Society of London, was born.
