Best Places to Celebrate New Year
Jost van dyke
You may call it New Years Eve, but on Jost Van Dyke, its Old Years Night. The festivities on this tiny British Virgin Island take place at Foxys Tamarind Bar and other nightlife spots in Grand Harbor, and draw a crowd from around the Caribbean and, in fact, the world. One of the most raucous New Years parties in the region, Old Years Night celebrations actually consist of 48 hours of live music, drinking, and eating; the annual event attracts thousands of shirtless or bikini clad partygoers who stay up late and sometimes sleep on the beach.
