The amazing history of the island includes:
Christopher Columbus landed here. The Lignum Vitae, or "tree of life," grew here. Emancipated slaves gained freedom early here. The island has been claimed by royalty, possessed by smugglers, and in 1915, owned by an unusually free-spirited, pipe-smoking woman. When it was a private estate, partygoers waded into the surf at night carrying lanterns, scooping up lobsters for dinner. Elegant women with skirts hoisted, gentlemen with clenched cigars...laughing and chasing lobsters in what is still the clearest water in the Caribbean. The island has always been provocative, coaxing its visitors to live large and sensually. This spirit persists at Jumby Bay in a setting that is unearthly in its beauty and captivatingly human in character.
