This is a great beach for me and my family to go. We have been going here go a while now and love it. It is never crowded, but if it is windy or rainy the water level is very high and rough.

Amazing hidden gem. This bean is not easy to get to. There is only room for about 3 cars at the entrance and all others have to park a ways and walk. However its well worth the walk. Only a few people know about this beach. The locals try and keep it a secret. Which means there is virtually no... More

Heck, there are only spots for 5 cars to park.... Jumbie is like having your own beach on St. John. Its pretty, the snorkel can be great, and it gets afternoon sun. Check it out.

There is only spots for 6 cars to park. And then a very short walk, and you have almost your own cove. Right next to Trunk Bay and you can hike or swim over for the snack bar or bring your own. If you stay after 4 pm brim mosquito repellent you will need it. Very nice. Fills up by... More

I love this beach. When I came 10 years ago, it was called Ghost Beach, and there were only two parking spots, and no sign. Now there is a large sign and more parking, but it still wasn't too busy. Snorkeling is good, sand is soft, and you can look over at Trunk Bay's crowds and be happy you aren't... More

After reading other reviews we decided to try Jumbie Bay for snorkeling. It's a small beach just a short walk from the 8 car parking area. The beach was very narrow but nice but we went to snorkel the reef. I found the reef to be lifeless and dead very few fish to speak of even out by the bouys... More

Jumbie was suggested to us by our villa owners and we were so happy we listened. It's a short walk down hill from the small parking lot on the road. We arrived to find one other couple on the beach. We never had more than 10 people with us and there is ample room so that everyone has space. A... More

Great small beach with a protected cove. The water is so clear, and the views are amazing. You can see Trunk Bay off to the right. I think this was my favorite beach on St. John.

There was ample parking the morning we went to this beach. The walk was not too strenuous. There were leaves on the path so couldn't see really well. Nice out of the way beach.

We stopped and enjoyed this beautiful beach on a whim, only 8 people were there so it is quite private. Peaceful and serene setting, plenty of room for tanning and a great spot for snorkeling and swimming. The beach is about 300 ft from the road but worth the short walk.
