Darkwood Beach, Antigua

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.

  • There's a nice aqua park.for.The kids
  • There is a fun inflatable water slide course for adults and kids alike. It's super affordable and super fun! $20 EC for half an hr and $30 EC for and hr. (Trust me... You're going to be exhausted in the 1st 15 mins depending on your fitness level). Cudos to Alak Monsoor for his customer service.
  • A very beautiful beach with a waterpark
  • About perfect spot. Can park within feet of the beach. Great sand, water does get deep a few feet in but then not too bad.
  • Nice swimming beach. Park your car within view.
