Darkwood Beach, Antigua

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Unwind away from the crowds at Darkwood Beach, an Antiguan beach that offers great snorkeling and a secluded retreat. Turquoise clear waters and a small reef close to the shore provide an excellent spot for beginners to practice their snorkeling or swim in calm waters. A long stretch of white crystal sands is interrupted only by a beach bar, which rents snorkeling equipment, as well as serving refreshing snacks and offering restrooms. If you’ve got the kids with you, then the inflatable aquatic playground often set up in the bay will keep them entertained for hours, while you enjoy a cold drink and some peace and quiet.

  • Crystal clear waters, white sand beach a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, a restaurant at the sea with various options for eating, beer very cold and friendly attention, better you can do by coming to this island really spend all day on this incredible beach.

  • Wow what a lovely beach, soft sandy beach, toilets, restaurant food brought to you on beach, lovely guys looking after you 
  • I was in 3 Antigua beaches and would rate them as well: Darkwood Beach: the best for its beach and clean sand, nice restaurant and not as many visitors Ffryes Beach: second better already that very similar to Darkwood but a little less Jolly Harbour services: I would say that it is not good because the sand has many shells, at few meters becomes deep and too many visitors making it uncomfortable for all...
