Jumbie Beach is not for those who want to open their car door and step out into the sand. JB requires that one takes a simple short hike (1/8 to 1/4 mile) down a smooth gravel path, arriving at a beautiful small beach where one...More

Just a very short 220 feet hike into Jumbie Beach to tranquil paradise. It was one of the few beaches that offered shade after hurricanes Irmaria. Really quite lovely.

First timers so have fresh eyes but it seems like this tiny beach was not hit as hard by the hurricanes as the others. Plenty of spots you can snag with shade. We had the beach pretty much to ourselves. Got pretty windy but a...More

Small white sand beach that is 'hidden' and not overcrowded. Lots of surf and a great view of Trunk Bay. The water is beautiful!! Limited parking.

Apparently the only beach on the island with a non english name but nevertheless we did not run into any ghosts, just turtles so it was a great experience

This wasn't my favorite beach in St. John, but I'm still giving it 5 stars, because---you're in freaking St. John! It was beautiful and I had a really lovely and easy snorkel. Lots of seagrass and beautiful silver fish, among other things.

That's the one! There's actually a path, not a wooden staircase for Jumbie. To get to Jumbie it's past Hawksnest before trunk bay. The parking is on the right side of the road.
