  • With pristine clear and reasonably calm waters Dickenson Bay is one of Antigua's most popular area. The powdery white sand beach stretches for quite a distance and is shared by upwards of four Hotels including Sandals. There are lots of activities happening on the beach and in the water, however you feel that you owe it to yourself to sample the inviting water. Designated swimming areas are clearly demarcated so your swim will be that much safer. The many water sporting actives available as part of the hotel offering or from private operators so do indulge.
