Have your say

Colourful, unspoiled and utterly relaxed; Antigua is an island blessed with soft white sand beaches, excellent watersports and an unpretentious charm.

Resorts range from rustic beachfront abodes to ultra-chic oases which simply refuse to compromise on luxury comforts.

Jumby Bay is the alternative bolthole from the flashier hot spots in this part of the world like chichi St Barths and ultra-fashionable Mustique.

Style abounds in Jumby Bay, to be sure, but it is a style that exudes sophistication and appreciation for the finer things in life.

It is really not the kind of place to come looking for manicured golf courses and non-stop nightlife.

Instead, here you will find ideal spots for stargazing away from the lights of Antigua and one of the world’s best nesting sites for Hawksbill turtles.

The Inn is set in 19 coastal acres of Antigua’s National Park and stands guard to the entrance of the picturesque, yacht-dotted English Harbour.

Step out of the door and straight into the heart of Antiguan life, or cross the water to find Nelson’s historic dockyard.

Activities you can undertake at this destination include dancing to the sounds of steel drums at Shirley Heights as the sun sets over the harbour.

Or you can witness the Hawksbill turtles nest and their hatchlings make their way to the sea on Pasture Bay Beach.

Hire a helicopter for a bird’s eye view of the volcano on neighbouring Montserrat.

Watch the yachts descend on English Harbour during the annual sailing regatta.

Take a boat trip to Antigua’s sister island, Barbuda , famed for glorious pink sand beaches and clear water for snorkelling.

There is simply so much, or so little to do on this idyllic island.

That’s perhaps the only decision you will have to make... except for when and for how long?
