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.
