Jumby Bay Island is a first class luxury all-inclusive resort, set on a private island of 300 acres, 2 miles off the north coast off Antigua. A chunk of paradise without pretensions and, even better, families travelling here can take an active part in the island’s conservation efforts, watching turtles hatch and releasing them back into the sea – a once in a lifetime experience. 

The island is a 7-minute boat ride away from the mainland and you probably won’t want to leave - whether you prefer to relax by the pool or on the private beach or enjoy some of the many watersports and activities on offer. The restaurant and grill offer panoramic views and fine food but, if you prefer, you can head out on a boat and catch your own supper. There’s nightly entertainment, private dinners can be arranged and there’s a weekly barbecue. The kids’ clubs are excellent with active involvement in conservation, constellation walks and mocktail lessons. There is also a spa for even more downtime, and the kids can enjoy junior treatments too.

Accommodation is luxurious and consists of spacious suites and villas, spread across the island.
