Located right across the bay from Trunk Bay, this small beach has great snorkeling and is an ideal spot to watch magnificent sunsets.

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

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...More

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.

There are only 7 parking spots, but this is a very small beach. The black rock to the side is very striking! The sand is soft and pretty easy access to this beach. The snorkeling is pretty good.

Had avoided it because it doesn't have a lot of parking and thought the hike was longer than it is. Very pleasant and a decent snorkeling. It's closer in to Cruz bay so a few minutes shorter than going to Trunk which is around the...More

Holy wow is what I was thinking as I swam along the reefs that line either side of this cute little beach that shares the same bay as famous trunk bay. This is our 4th trip to St. John but our 1st to Jumbie &...More

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.
