Set on 300-acres, Jumby Bay is nestled two miles off the coast of Antigua in Long Island. The Jumby Bay beach is also one of my favorites in the Caribbean; you simply cannot walk along this white powdery beach without stopping at the beach bar to enjoy a refreshing Pina Colada.
Guests thoroughly enjoy every minute in Jumby Bay with its wonderful all-inclusive restaurants, an abundance of activities and top class service from some of the nicest staff you will ever meet. Your memories will last a lifetime! Read more about Jumby Bay resort.
