We spent the day here arrived early. There are only a few parking spaces maybe six total . Great ocean breeze, clear water , very tranquil and private for couples wanting to be alone and get away from it all. There was another party of locals having a gathering and then the two of us from 10:00am until 1:30pm not... More

There are very few parking spaces so get here early - it's a short walk down to the beach. It's a small but beautiful beach and very private and the water is gorgeous - good snorkeling by either side. We saw a huge stingray that was about a foot offshore and just kept swimming up and down the beach. No... More

We stumbled upon Jumbie looking for something away from the crowds. Although there were others there, it wasn't crowded and turned out being one of our favorite beaches. I loved that there was plenty of morning shade and easy entry to the water. Get there early as there's only about 6-7 parking spots.

Found this tiny, secluded beach almost by accident and fell in love with its quiet, breezy calm. Because it has no direct access for larger vehicles, the cab drivers skip it and drive on to nearby Trunk Bay/beach.

Nice secluded out of the way beach. Parking space close to it is limited to around six cars, there is additional parking uphill, walking distance. The sand is coarser than other beaches close by. Not too crowded and nice snorkeling.

If you love a small secluded beach to get away from getting away, no amenities no crowds, no problem. Just beautiful.

Park across the road and just a short walk on a trail will bring you to this lovely little beach. We snorkeled there twice. The first time, there were a lot of people on the beach but plenty of space and room for everyone. Sting rays, Tarpon and other fish will come to the shoreline. The pelicans and other birds... More

I started my day with a walk down the thin path to isolated Jumbie Beach. It is small, clean, isolated and beautiful. I spent an hour just sitting back and gazing at a bunch of Brown Pelicans diving into the bay. No facilities. No people. 3 parking spaces =quiet paradise.

Small beach is usually not crowded. Good (not great) snorkeling, particularly if you want to see schools of fish. Only place on the island we saw squid. Some shade, but limited.

There is a short hike down to this beach. It's a really easy walk and it's fun to look around. We saw a huge termite nest up in one of the trees and some crabs. The beach is very small but not very crowded. We didn't swim here so can't report on the water but it looked great.
