Diamond Cay is a tiny islet located just off Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. At low tide, it is connected by a sandbar to Jost Van Dyke. It was declared a national park in 1991.[1] The Diamond Cay National Park provides habitat for pelicans, terns and boobies to nest.[2][3]
