Galley Bay Beach, St. John's

4.6
#1 of 6 in Parks in St. John's
Take advantage of white sands and turquoise waters at Galley Bay Beach, on the northwest cost of Antigua. Much of this beach belongs to a local resort, which provides a wide range of facilities for food and entertainment. Go snorkeling among the marine life or try some water sports, including windsurfing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Depending on the time of year you may even witness the hatching of sea turtles, as the beach is sometimes used for nesting. Galley Bay Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, St. John's Edition.
