Winthorpes Bay Beach

Where is Winthorpes Bay Beach?


Winthorpes Bay sits on the northeastern coast of Antigua about 5 minutes from the airport and is used as the docking area to get to the luxurious Jumby Bay Island- a private island fitted with the Jumby Bay Beach resort, villas, and restaurants.


Winthorpes Bay is easily accessible-being right next to Burna main Road. It is the location of Jumby Bay Dock and from the beach, you can see spectacular views of the island in the distance.


This unspoiled piece of tropical beauty is one of Antigua’s precious secluded beaches. It is very secluded with glimmering white sands and vibrant reefs all around the bay. A ferry to the magnificent Jumby Bay Beach in Antigua can be accessed here. Here you will find various birds making it an ideal spot for bird watching. It is also a great snorkeling area due to the great reef that stretches all across the bay. The relaxed atmosphere is enhanced by the lush vegetation and tall palm trees sheltering the bay, providing lots of shade so you can lounge and enjoy the serenity.

Relax and observe majestic pelicans in their natural habitat at Winthorpes Bay. This beach is favored by birds because of the many fishes that live within the reef.

You can chill under the shade of a coconut tree and observe these creatures as they perch and prey on colorful fishes; swooping down to capture them at the right moment.


The reef extends all around the bay and is easily accessible as it is practically steps from the shore. Enjoy shallow snorkeling and swim with the beautiful friendly fishes that live in these calm iridescent waters.
