Experiences:

BEACHES

Jumby Bay Beach
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.

Pasture Bay Beach
On the northern flank of the island, the secluded sands of Pasture Bay offer ultimate privacy. Along this perfect crescent beach of wild, unspoiled beauty, buffered by a backdrop of palms and seagrape hedges, you can summon your inner Robinson Crusoe. The waves here roll in from the Atlantic and invite a dazzlingly rich marine and bird life — which includes the endangered hawksbill sea turtle. For guests seeking a quiet, romantic oasis, private picnics on Pasture Bay are easily arranged with a call to the resort's concierge. 



OCEAN ADVENTURES
Surrounded by warm crystal waters, Jumby Bay is a playground for watersports enthusiasts of all levels. Watersports staff stand ready to assist and instruct guests in a variety of complimentary activities that include water-skiing, windsurfing, paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling. Snorkeling trips to nearby Bird Island — a haven for wildlife — are offered weekly. The resort can also arrange diving trips and eco-tours further out into Antigua's waters, which are known for their well-preserved coral reefs, teeming with marine life.

WATERSPORTS
The pristine beaches and crystal waters of Jumby Bay lend themselves to a variety of complimentary water sports, including waterskiing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. Morning snorkeling trips to nearby Bird Island are offered weekly. Beach attendants are available to assist with water sport lessons.

PRIVATE YACHT CHARTER ON YENNECOT
For the ultimate in private sea excursions, guests can charter the resort's luxury yacht, “Yennecot” a 45-foot custom-built catamaran that comes with Jumby Bay's own certified crew, trained to US Coast Guard safety standards. Every outing is a highly personalized experience — whether guests are looking for a half-day of lounging in the Caribbean sun or an action-filled weekend of snorkeling, diving and exploring.

Private Cades Reef Charter
The most popular reef location, Cades Reef, sprawls over two miles across the Southwest coast of Antigua. Designated as an underwater park, the reef is home to a variety of corals, stingrays, grunts and grouper. There are two sides to the reef that guests can tour, but based on water conditions, you might only get to see the more sheltered inner portion. Make this your own adventure by enjoying lunch aboard Yennecot, or venturing out to Jackie O’s. An open bar is provided, so all that’s left to do is enjoy!

Private Paradise Reef/ Bird Island Charter
For those seeking to get the most out of their ocean escapade, this charter has enough adventure for the entire family. Your snorkeling journey begins with one of Antigua’s more popular snorkeling sites, Paradise Reef. Common sightings include octopus and lobster, while schools of fish race in unison nearby. The next stop is Great Bird Island which is privately owned, but has been kept as an untouched sanctuary, removed from human residency. A great location for beginners and experienced snorkelers, this colorful reef is home to a number of endangered species. Enjoy an open bar as you embark upon your journey.

Private Sunset Cruise Charter
Your experience at Jumby Bay is not complete without indulging in this Sunset Cocktail Cruise Charter. Perfection is the theme of the evening as you and your special someone revel in the warm hues of pinks and oranges that fill the sky as the sun sets over the mainland of Antigua. Gourmet canapés are served alongside an open bar.

Shopping in St. John's Charter
For those who want to see a little more than just the pristine and tranquil environment of Jumby Bay, it is suggested taking a charter out to St. John’s, Antigua. A melting pot of architectural styles, shops and vendors, guests are sure to enjoy the diversity and rich culture that is kept within the confines of the town. From finding that perfect evening outfit, to delighting in authentic Caribbean cuisine, there is something for everyone – not to mention an open bar for the ride.

Circumnavigation Charter
Avoid the crowds and see Antigua from a different perspective on this six hour tour. An entertaining excursion for the entire family, the Circumnavigation Charter allows passengers the opportunity to see Antigua, and its surrounding islands, first-hand. A country so rich in history, the tour will uncover a fact or two that will leave you wanting to learn more. Lunch is served alongside an open bar, so come ready to relax and relish in this amazing destination.

SAILING

Custom Sailing Adventures
Antigua is a world-class sailing destination, with the longest-running regatta in the Caribbean. And through Jumby Bay's exclusive sailing partner, Ondeck, guests are invited to sail a state-of-the-art yacht right from the resort's dock. This premier charter company will tailor a private adventure for you and your family where guests of all ages can learn the mechanics of sailing under the tutelage of an accomplished crew. More experienced sailors can participate in a real yacht race around Antigua. And for those who simply want to enjoy the island's lush scenery aboard a beautiful America's Cup vessel, Ondeck can arrange a private sunset cruise, best enjoyed with a glass of champagne.

KITEBOARDING
As one of the Caribbean’s most alluring islands and blessed with an abundance of beaches, Antigua offers great kiteboarding opportunities. Jabberwock Bay, for instance, is a beautiful National Park on the North Coast, and renowned amongst kiters. Whatever your level, the sandy, shallow areas which drop off into deeper waters make it a prime destination for guests to perfect their techniques. There are also a few flat areas for “wakestyle” tricks, where there is a 60-foot A-frame slider and a kicker. With favorable wind, water and sand conditions, this is a great place to bump, jump and ride the waves.

STINGRAY CITY
For those who have always wanted to get up close and personal with Nature, this is a prime chance. Stingray City offers an interactive eco-tour where guests can swim and play with Southern Stingrays in a safe and controlled environment. Located in the calm waters of Mercers Creek Bay, the secure Stingray Habitat, just 15 minute from Jumby Bay’s dock, is a natural home to more than 30 Southern Stingrays as well as countless colorful tropical fish and stunning species of corals. With waters shallow enough for visitors to stand up in, guests can explore marine life to their heart’s content. No experience is needed; guests do not even need to be able to swim to participate.



TENNIS
The Jumby Bay Tennis Club is comprised of three courts, two of which can be lit for evening play. Courtside amenities include complimentary iced water, sports beverages and towels. Director of Tennis and resident pro, Jerry Williams, is a Davis Cup veteran, and has played with the world's top-ranked players, including Steffi Graf, Chanda Rubin and Mary Pierce, all of whom have been guests at Jumby Bay.



GOLF
The beautifully constructed Cedar Valley Golf Course was designed and built by Ralf Aldridge, opening with just 9 holes in 1970 and completed its 18 holes course in 1977 as Antigua’s sole 18 holes championship Golf Course. This beautiful par 70, 6157-yds golf course lies amidst mature tropical tree vistas on hills and the Caribbean Sea, providing an enjoyable and challenging game of golf. It accommodates players of all skill levels within a breathtaking scenery for a memorable golfing experience.

Small boats will also be waiting to whisk groups of ten across the lagoon and into the heart of the mangroves, to the world’s largest Frigate bird colony. This avian sanctuary contains over 170 species of birds and is home to over 5000 frigate birds, most of which visitors can get up close to. Expert guides will provide an ecological overview throughout.

Montserrat Volcano Tour
This is a prime chance for visitors to experience the beauty of Antigua from the safety and comfort of a Bell helicopter.

It also offers them the chance to see the live Soufrière Hills Volcano in all its glory – including its crater, its pyroclastic flows, and the former capital of Plymouth, which in some places has been buried under 40 feet of ash. An ecological and geographical journey from the heights, this is an Antigua tour with a difference.

The Estate House:

The Estate House is the top fine-dining destination in the Caribbean, combining classic fare with modern island flavors, drawing on the culinary traditions of the West Indies.  Signature dishes include Monkfish and black trumpet casserole with crispy jasmine rice pancake; Spiny lobster with Armagnac flambé, tomato, saffron pearl, and sea urchin; and Black sea bass with potato confit.  For dessert, sweet indulgences include Rum Baba with berry compote and preserved citrus and Baked Alaska with rum flambé and Antiguan black pineapple.

The circa 1830 plantation house, once the centerpiece of the island’s sugar plantation, reopened in November 2016 following a one-year, six-million-dollar restoration. The new Estate House includes a main restaurant and the 1830 Bar with three new private dining rooms as well as a wine room all inspired by the home's rich history and island traditions.

Richly combining the impressions of a traditional colonial home with a contemporary perspective, The Estate House’s redesign, led by acclaimed designer Dennis Irvine, represents a modern interpretation of the Colonial spirit. Retaining historical elements of the original structure, the redesign pays homage to The Estate House’s roots in empire-era glamour with subtle nods to the island’s history and traditions throughout. A two-story, vaulted ceiling provides a dramatic entryway to the bar, while an airy courtyard, connecting the main restaurant, three private dining rooms, and the Wine Room, serve as an idyllic outdoor lounge space to savor pre or post dinner drinks amongst tropical plants and a fountain made by a local artist. Curated local artwork depicting local Antiguan life, flora, and fauna, and vintage maps adorn the walls, while sophisticated tableware and accessories offer a refined dining experience. Inspired by the island’s verdant landscape, a color palette of rich greens have been employed, and hand-crafted furnishings in ebony, teak, rattan, and wicker will emulate the style of past travelers and explorers. Sweeping terraces will offer unparalleled views of the island landscape.

The Verandah:

With panoramic Caribbean views, the open-air seafront restaurant is high on refined culinary experiences and low on pretensions. Both breakfast and lunch include tapas style offerings and an à la carte menu based on fresh seasonal selections. Dinner is a relaxed brasserie-under-the-stars setting, where guests can indulge in signature international dishes (from paella to chicken tikka masala), as well as locally caught seafood specialties and select prime steaks.

The Pool Grille:

With its spectacular beachside setting, skirting the oceanfront infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea, the Pool Grille is perfect for those who can’t bear to leave the water’s edge.

Serving casual bistro fare for lunch (salads, sandwiches, grilled seafood specialties), in addition to house snacks and refreshing cocktails, smoothies and fresh fruit juices throughout the day, sunbathers can choose to dine under the shaded canopy or order from their lounger.

wellness

The resort's is a haven of serenity by the sea. Worlds away from the maddening crowds of the Caribbean, yet firmly rooted in Antigua's local culture and natural environment, Sense reflects the open-air architectural grace of Jumby Bay.

Treatments integrate native ingredients grown in Jumby Bay’s own gardens, and include bamboo massage, exfoliation and facials in addition to manicures, pedicures and hair salon services.
