Dickenson Bay, Antigua

3.9
#3 of 12 in Nature in Antigua and Barbuda
If you're looking for a popular, busy beach with plenty to do and see, check out Dickenson Bay. The shoreline boasts a large number of resorts, restaurants, bars, and a wide selection of water sports. The long white beach offers plenty of room for sunbathing, and the calm waters are great for swimmers of all levels. If you prefer to explore, go island hopping along the string of uninhabited islands just offshore. Take your snorkeling gear if you want to stop on the coral reef and view the marine life up close.

  • among all the magnificent beaches of Antigua this is definitely the last of our League. Too much hassle, dirty, rowdy. We rented a little umbrella and two deck chairs but after an hour we literally ran. It will be because of the resort not far, or because of its proximity to the capital. Was the only beach in Antigua full chock full of English tourists, Americans super drunk and rowdy. Seeing the photos may look nice but don't be fooled, definitely overrated not pays tribute to the island. There are a thousand times more beautiful and clean beach a few km from that.
