The image of postcard perfection, the pristine white sands of Jumby Bay Beach lay on the western side of the island at the edge of the gently lapping sapphire waters of the Caribbean Sea. Lined by cushioned chaises beneath thatched-roofed bohios under which beach goers can escape the sun, and hammocks strung between palm trees, it is a stage set for hours of unrepentant relaxation while gazing out to sea to mainland Antigua on the horizon.
The Beach Bar, a traditional open bungalow located midway down the shoreline, is conveniently located at the center of the resort's casual luxury beach service where guests find cocktails, cold water and fresh towels within reach. Not inclined to shift from your chosen island perch? A raised hand brings a frosty glass of water, delicious daiquiri or tray bearing a selection of freshly made fruit sorbet.
