Galley Bay Beach, St. John's

(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is a wonderful beach! It's a little on the "narrow" side (not much space between the waters edge and the trees), but just by a little. You will need your own chairs or loungers since those are on...  more »
  • We stayed at the Galley Bay Resort and the beach is beautiful. It is wide, clean and fairly private. The water an be a bit rough though given its exposure. 
  • St. Johns, Antiqua in general is spectacular and Galley Bay a gorgeous part of it. The beaches here are all open to the public, no hotel cramping the views in most cases.
