Located along North Shore Road, between Hawksnest Bay and Trunk Bay, is Jumbie Beach. Often overlooked for more popular beaches like Trunk bay. Parking is fairly limited – making Jumbie Beach a great spot to enjoy a quiet stretch of St John beach.
Jumbie is a small beach, only about 60 yards long. Visitors will need to park in the designated parking across the road and make the modest walk/hike along a narrow path. There you’ll find a crescent shaped beach of white sand. Sea Grapes offer some shade especially in the late afternoon. Entry is shallow. Waves and surf are usually calm to moderate. But due to it’s orientation, wind and weather Jumbie can have high surf at times!
Not among the best snorkeling spots on St John. However, there is some decent structure including corals and tropical fish if you head towards Trunk bay ( right as you face the water).
