Jolly Harbour, Antigua, is located at 17˚ North. It’s the place to be for constant sunshine, sea breezes and swaying palms - enjoying the Summer season year round! If you are lucky you may see the "green flash" at sunset as you sip your sundowner. Not sure what a "green flash" is? Ask our Dockmaster, William, once he has berthed you in the marina.
Situated on the sheltered Leeward side of the island, the approach to Jolly Harbour Marina is through gorgeous aquamarine water amidst beautiful bays and quiet sandy beaches - all of which are accessible and just a short boat ride away. We are only 20 minutes from the capital city of St John’s and 30 minutes from V.C. Bird International Airport.
Jolly Harbour is very convenient for clearance, in and out by sea, as the Customs, Immigration and Port Authority services are adjacent to the super yacht dock.
Barbuda, the sister island to Antigua, is an easy day sail being only 25 miles to the North of Antigua. A visit to Jolly Harbour before sailing there is a good idea as although you will be stunned by the 9 mile long, pink coral beach you will not easily find a supermarket there. While in Barbuda enjoy a visit to the Frigate bird colony and the highlands on the dramatic Windward coast. Another tip, fill up your watertanks before leaving Jolly Harbour.
