With just four-and-a-half miles of pristine shoreline, Jumby Bay presides over some of the most spectacular — and fiercely protected — beaches in the Caribbean.
This gentle arc of white-powdered sand, fringed with palms and kissed by turquoise waters, encapsulates everything about Jumby Bay’s chilled-out charm.
The island’s iconic half-mile stretch of beach is lined with thatched bohios under which guests can lounge in the shade on cushioned chaises. Alternatively, a sprinkling of hammocks, strung between the palms, beckons. Or a sun chair that invites you to dip your feet into the softly lapping sea. Or the Beach Bar, a traditional open bungalow that sits midway on the shore.
Whatever your chosen perch, you’ll find cocktails, cold water, culinary treats and fresh towels on hand — serviced by Jumby Bay’s beach attendants, who will invariably hand you a frozen daiquiri or fresh-fruit smoothie before you even think to request one.
Enjoy it. And soak up those last golden rays as you see the sun set over Antigua.
An ancient coral reef first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and claimed by the British in 1632, Jumby Bay Island takes its name from “jumbie,” Antiguan for “playful spirit.” Held by a series of owners including a family of sugar planters, the island was developed as a luxurious resort and vacation community in the 1980s. Today, Rosewood Jumby Bay perseveres as a secluded hideaway for sophisticated travelers. Featuring lush landscapes and pristine beaches, Jumby Bay is the ultimate soul-soothing retreat.
Reachable only by boat, and with no cars in sight, Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort is a world unto itself. This private isle of white-powdered beaches and winding bicycle paths is a one-of-a-kind hideaway known, quite simply, as the finest resort in the Caribbean.
