  • Great setting lovely relaxing beach with sun beds and now with the lovely new cafe nearby called Loose Cannon which has recently opened up. We visited at lunchtime and chatted with Colin the owner...

  • Antigua's best snorkeling beach - turtles and stingrays abound. Beautiful bay - and the new Loose Cannon beach bar is amazing. You can rent snorkels, paddle boards there.

  • Absolutely amazing beach , shallow calm water and a shipwreck with loads of fish swimming around it, saw a hawksbill few times also , probably my favourite beach. There are couple of hiking trails starting not far from this beach going to Shirley heights.. stunning views over Freeman's bay and English harbour.
  • Amazing place to snorkel and swim! Can be a bit busy but it’s a beautiful sandy beach!
  • Gorgeous clear water perfect for snorkeling with so much to see. Watch out for sea urchins on the rocks.
  • A beautiful location for the views but the beach has lots of broken shells, and coral chunks. The water has large rocks and seaweed close to shore. Parking is very sparse. The breakers have great turtle grounds we'll see later.
  • This place was exactly what you want in a Caribbean beach...at least in the off season. A sting ray jump clear out of the water about 50 meters from shore. The turtles were poking their heads out of the water to catch a breath as they munched on the seagrass below. There are no currents and the bouyancy makes it impossible to sink, so the kids can snorkel and frolic freely. There is a small shipwreck. I snorkeled out with an eight-year-old who is afraid of EVERYTHING, including the shipwreck! We only had full face snorkel mask, no fins. It was off-season, so I was alone on the small beach, Freeman Beach, which had really good shaded area, but bring a sitting towel or beach chair. There are a couple of hotels and one defunct hotel with abandoned bungalows on the beach. You can climb a small hill and get a great panorama view. All-in-all, this is a nice little place.
