Jolly Beach has a number of great times to visit throughout the year, but perhaps the best time is when it is at its most lively with other tourists during the winter months (if you don’t mind the crowds), particularly from December to March. This is the time of year when temperatures are in their 20s on a fairly consistent basis and people are escaping the cold of the UK. The summertime is also an ideal time to visit this resort, with temperatures at a very similar level or even higher. The only difference is less tourist activity in the region. So if you prefer to avoid the crowds, summer might be best for you.
As well as simply relaxing on the soft sands of Jolly Beach, there are plenty of other amazing things to do and see in the region. Antigua is one of the main sailing centres of the Caribbean so a trip out to sea might be a great way to see other parts of the island or even visit another Caribbean island! The Jolly Harbour Golf Course is worth checking out and Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour is one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved historic districts. The beach is always fairly busy so if you want a quieter alternative, we recommend that you visit Darkwood Beach which is just a few kilometres south.
