The path leading to it is precious. It's short, well maintained and full of bird noises. The beach is narrow and secluded, though you can hear the noise from the street which is right above it. The water is just fantastic. My friend fell asleep under a cocoloba tree and I couldn't wake her up. So, I decided to leave... More

To get to Jumbie Beach, there are a few parking spots on the south side of the road between Peace Hill and Trunk Bay. Follow a short trail that leads to this secluded little beach. Very peaceful and lots of shade. There is a sign for the trail and parking is paved.

A great beach, a bit of a step for water access. Palm trees and sea grapes for shade. Parking lot is small, no toilet. A good beach for viewing fish on the left and right sides. Can be busy.

Got the recommendation to visit from a fellow snorkeler. Not crowded area with plenty of good snorkeling without the crowds and kids splashing around. Very short easy hike to beach, but limited parking

There's only 5 parking places so you'd better get here early to stake out a place on this idilic beach. Its about 300 ft or so down a gentle path through the woods when your rewarded with a beautiful sight of Trunk Bay to your right and Jost Van Dyke ahead. Aquamarine blue water and white sand an image I'll... More

This is a small little beach with just a few parking spaces. My guide from the previous day did not recommend it but I liked it. I was there very early so there was no one around. So go early or you may miss out.

We stumbled upon Jumbie when a parking spot opened up and we were glad that we did! The view was great and the beach beautiful but the best of all was that practically had the beach to ourselves!

This is a very nice small private little beach away from the crowds. There are only 6 parking spots so you must either get there early or late in the day, or be real lucky. There appears to be some good Snorkling here, though I did not get a chance to try any.

Small beach with only about 6 parking places - need to come by 9:30am to get one. Snorkeling in rocks on left side of beach is AMAZING. Pretty little beach with beautiful views.

We hiked down the little trail to Jumbie but the surf was rough that day and the sand is very very coarse compared to other beaches on the island.
