If you want to swim/sun bath, there are much better beaches on the Island, however, for kitesurfing this is pretty much the best. The trade winds blow cross-onshore and this is the beach where you will find the local kiters. As an added bonus there is usally a kicker and a slider set up here, something I have not seen... More

It was sunset time when we visited this beach, it was nice but it is probably better to be there during day time.Still enjoyed it though.

great views from this beach, clear water but windy, this beach seems to collect more weed than most others but great for taking photos, seems to be used a lot by the locals

Lovely long beach, white sand and clear sea. Brilliant for snorkelling. There is a little shop and bar which was handy for snacks and water.

As the title says, great location and it was fun to watch some of the kite-surf enthusiasts enjoying themselves in the water.

great place to watch kite surfers! it's a longer beach, not much width for sunbathing, and the wind brings in seaweed. but the surfers are the show here

Watch the kite surfers. Nice walk along the beach. Past the dead tree and the abandoned building is a quiet spot for sunbathing and good swimming. Snorkelling is not the best as this side of the island can be very windy in January.

This is truly a beautiful place. We had a pretty difficult time finding somewhere to park, and the wind was very strong - the reason this is so very popular with Wind & Kite surfers, and pretty crowded at the weekend. It is worth visiting, but, unless you want to enjoy the "sea sports", there are many many more sheltered,... More

I spent a season learning and kiting at Jabberwock Beach. Kitesurf Antigua has a professional, safe and energetic vibe, whilst maintaining a cool, fun atmosphere which finds you relaxing on the beach with new-found friends and staff long after your lesson or session has ended. I learnt from scratch and felt confident with the patient, attentive instructors, with whom I... More

The beach is easily accessible on the north coast of the island, a few hundreds meters from the American Medicine University. It is quite small and with really not much parking. Usually is populated by windsurfers and kitesurfers so not much room is left for people not surfing in some way. On sundays or other festivities the north end is... More
