Forget about picnicking on this beach unless you like sand in your sandwiches or gusts of wind as you sunbathe. Jabberwock beach, although not a beach for everyone, is skilled when it comes to creating exemplary waves and wind cycles for the art of wind and kite surfing. This is a beach made for people who flock to the water to be active. If you’re hunting for a well-groomed beach where swimming and other water activities are the highlights, try beaches like Dickenson Bay, Jolly Beach or one of the other 362 beaches Antigua has to offer.

Jabberwock Beach activities, attractions & events

Visit Windsurf Antigua for some water adventureJabberwock beach provides the most unsullied kite and wind surfing conditions on Antigua. Take your turn or watch from the shore but remember, this isn’t a go-to beach for swimming, sun bathing or picnicking. Some visitors have commented on the clearness of the water on calm days and say that the reef is intricate, scenic and covered in fish.

Learn the art of windsurfing with Patrick Scales, the island’s most respected windsurfing instructor, at Windsurf Antigua, or simply rent some water sports equipment for some fun of your own. If you’re craving a night of nature rather than loud music, Jabberwock beach is where you’ll want to be. If you’re a lover of french food, great winds for kite and wind surfingLe Bistro will be sure to excite your taste buds, while a tour to Prickly Pear Island with Miguel’s Holiday Adventure will be sure to impress with endless drinks and local food from reputable restaurants.

Unfortunately, there are no events specific to Jabberwock Beach. If you are travelling to Antigua near the end of July and the beginning of August, you won’t want to miss the Caribbean’s greatest summer festival.
