We got dropped off by a local bus and expected to see a nice beach with a few nearby attractions. There was neither. Other than a small restaurant and convenience store across the road, there's nothing there. The beach itself was deserted.

We have been to almost all of their 365 beaches, and have yet found a beach that we didn't enjoy. Totally relaxing with calm waters to enjoy.

Beautiful beach, not crowded. Good for kiteboarding - wind was cross-onshore all the time. It also have decent reef close to shore, which was good for my husband who likes snorkeling.

I and my partner really enjoyed Jabberwock Beach, while vacationing in Antigua for the Carnival 2016. The deep blue waters was so soothing and comfortable. I loved the waves, which was so much fun. I recommend this beach for all travelers. It is so enjoyable you will not be disappointed.

Stopped at Jabberwock Beach on the way back to the airport. It's got that great sand like most beaches in Antigua, but it's a bit more breezy than most. Very pleasant to spend half an hour or so on and grab some snacks at the bar across the road.

Excellent beach area on the north side of the island. Close to the University and a few restaurants. Kind of a different feel than some of the other beaches.
