Jumbie Bay

Jumbie Beach, St John, US Virgin Islands top beaches

Jumbie Beach, St John, US Virgin Islands beaches informationJumbie Beach is located along St John’s north shore. At about 100 yards long – it’s not one of St John’s bigger beaches. Limited parking and proximity to Trunk Bay mean fewer people “discover” this little gem! So get there early and you’ll have a view of Trunk Bay as it fills up with visitors!

Getting there:
Head out of Cruz Bay on North Shore Road. Just over 2 miles from Cruz Bay you’ll come to a set of speed bumps with 2 small parking areas to your right. Just across the road is a narrow path through the woods to Jumbie Beach.

 

Jumbie Bay Beach
Jumbie Beach is short stretch of white sand fringed with sea grapes. Because of its orientation, it gets a fair amount of wind and surf making it a dramatic setting. If the north shore beaches are rough then Jumbie will be very rough. But most days you’ll find a wonderful spot to relax in and/or out of the sun with aqua green water at your toes and soft white sand under your butt. Best part, parking is limited – and that means the beach never gets crazy crowds ; )

Snorkeling Haulover St JohnSnorkeling
Not a great snorkeling beach because of the surf. Subject to high surf at times. Best bet is the reef between Jumbie and Trunk Bay ( right as you face the water). Although pretty battered by waves, this reef offers some interesting structure and enough coral and fish to make it an interesting spot.
