Diamond reef
British Virgin Islands, Jost Van Dyke

In 1991, a small section of the coral shelf near Jost Van Dyke Island and Dong Bay Beach was recognized as a national park. This site includes several tiny islands - Sandy Kay, Sandy Split and a fragment of Little Jost Van Dyke. All of them are nesting places for seabirds - terns, cormorants and pelicans. At certain times of the year, birds cover the land so densely that because of the flickering white plumage, the coral reef was called Diamond. You can get here only accompanied by an experienced conductor who knows sandbanks well, where you can lower the anchor. But in a certain season, visiting the Diamond Reef is completely prohibited. This is due to the migration of turtles that lay their eggs on local beaches. At other times, many go here for diving and snorkeling among a variety of fish and other marine inhabitants of the reef.
