Dickenson Bay, Antigua
(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, St. John's holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Dickenson Bay and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
