Antigua has hundreds of beaches, from the bustling Pigeon Point to the kitesurfing paradise of Jabberwock Beach. It's fun to mix it up—a day spent in a secluded cove, another spent people-watching at a tourist magnet. When you’re tired of sun and sand you can shoot ‘em up at Reservoir Range, where archery and air pistols are a fun way to work out any lingering pre-vacation stress. A tour of the Antigua Distillery is a spirited way to experience a true taste of the island.

We asked the taxi guy to take us to a beach that was beautiful but not too busy. This was it. There was people on it but only 1 row of people in chairs all the way along. So your view was never blocked. There were guys trying to sell you seadoo rides but they were subtle about it. I did get my kids a half hour and they loved it. The beach had a gradual slope into the water so our youngest (8yrs) was happy as well

Quaint and beautiful resort that oozes romance and relaxation. If you want to enjoy the beautiful beach, yummy local cuisine, impeccable service, this hotel is for you. One of the best Beaches I have ever seen. The fact that the room has a direct walkout access to the beach is amazing.

Catch some rays while watching the surf at this beautiful pink sand beach.
Great beach probably the furthest point away from St. John’s and the cruise ship hordes. Get a lounger from Lobster the guy on the beach, he’ll get you a coconut to drink straight from the tree. Very popular with the locals . It has a great peaceful vibe . Checkout the Beach Bums Bar great food and drinks a reasonable prices

Beautiful area. Clean. Yes, there is some seaweed - we are talking about a beach and ocean afterall. Upon arrival the sales pitch for umbrella and chairs are hardcore. I told them I will buy them if I can put them at the end in a quiet spot. One guy walked us half way and dropped the stuff off in the middle of a crowd. I asked for further down. He asked a helper to take them further down. This new guy then proceeded to huff and puff and actually say to me “you are kidding me, this is too far”. I was further down where there was the odd person here and there, not the other side of the island! I would have carried the chairs myself had I known I was putting them out so much. Sheesh. He got his $20 and then ignored us. The life guard was sitting on a log singing away to music from his mobile phone which was pretty funny. Watch your kids, because this guy isn’t. A police truck regularly patrolled the area. We saw nothing unsafe. Likely just routine. Be careful when you get out of your taxi and get an arm band. They write a time on it, of which we did not realize. We ended up wanting to head back to the ship earlier than what was on the time band. Oh boy. That got everyone excited again. “Why?” “You go at 6!” “There is no driver for you until 6” I told him I did not agree to 6pm. Maybe the others in the van had but I did not hear him. Made a huge production of asking drivers if they were heading back, of which they were not because that would be taking our original drivers return fares. I believe they expected us to walk away but I stood my ground. I think they figured they would rather get rid of us so a driver did come over. We joined his van and he was incredibly polite and talkative. Take some good with some bad right? With all that being said, the beach is gorgeous and I am glad we were able to enjoy the scenery and warm water.

An excellent beach for snorkelling and beachcombing.
Beautiful sandy beach, with restaurant, bar and toilet facilities. Eric our taxi was friendly and reliable at $8 pp each way. Cell 268 7281446. Beach has sunbeds at $20 for 2. This beach is not crowded and just a further 5 min drive from Valley Church Beach which is overcrowded when there are cruise ships in port.

donkey sanctuary and small animal (dogs and cats) shelter operated by Antigua & Barbuda Humane Society, a non-profit corporation registered under The Companies Act.
This was rather nice - a sanctuary for donkeys, cats & dogs. The 150 donkeys were the main stars and were happy to be groomed. The lady in charge was very welcoming and informative. Well worth a visit.

This was a wonderful experience! Probably our favorite in the whole Caribbean! This was part of a tour we were on and we could have spent the entire tour here! Everything was great-the shops carried quality gifts - the buildings were so rich in history and the ships docked were out of this world. I found myself wishing for more time! This is absolutely a must see!

Hills overlooking the Dockyard on the east, named after the governor who built the fortifications.
As part of an organized island tour, my wife and I stopped here predominately for the spectacular views. Other than that there is not really much too it. Depending the time of day and whether there are cruise ships in town it can get quite crowded. Having said that we had no trouble getting some nice photos. There is a restaurant and some local vendors as well. Certainly worth a stop on an organized tour.
