  • Beautiful Caribbean Beach to spend a couple of hours ... The sand is not the end but you can walk quietly and and full of shells. Furthermore, on one side of the beach you can rent chairs and umbrellas/lettini. The sea is nothing short of amazing ... There is also a bar/restaurant. Recommended!

  • Beautiful white sand beach with small shells in it. 2 lounge chairs and umbrella was $20. Bucket of 6 Carib beers was also $20. There is a drop off going into the water but not too bad. Cab ride from ...  more »

  • Nice relaxing beach. Water is that beautiful blue that you see in pictures but it is cloudy. Water is also very calm and we enjoyed floating along in it. The beach itself is a little rough on the feet as the sand is very coarse. Other than that it is a wonderful beach to visit as it was not crowded. Beach is about 30-40 min from cruise port and you can find taxis to take you out there. Make sure to set up return time with your driver so you can get back in time. I believe it was $8 per person one way. Beach chairs and umbrellas can be rented.
  • I feel a little conflicted writing this review. The beach was in a beautiful location and lounge chairs/umbrellas were pretty reasonably priced. However, as others have mentioned, the sand was coarse and the water visibility was nearly zero. We don't regret going there once just for the setting, but we likely wouldn't go back.
  • Very scenic but cant be best beach in Antigua. Water color was gorgeous. Visibility was zero- can barely see your hand underwater. Constant barrage of locals selling whatever they were selling. Just approached too many times. Chairs & Umbrella were reasonable ($5-ea. $10 for umbrella) Food & drink was Expensive & bartender was Not friendly nor nice. Large dropoff to get into water 20inches. lots of broken shells. nice sandy beach once out in water. Never to return. We wanted to go to Darkwood Beach but our Taxi driver "steered" us here. Somewhat Disappointed - but the photos are gorgeous.
  • Great location. Water was nice and very refreshing. Not as clear as previously stated, but still wonderful.
  • This is a beautiful beach, probably the nicest I have ever been to. It was busy the day we were there, but no less enjoyable.
