  • Galley Bay beach is pretty to look at, but the waves make it difficult to swim. Not one of the best beaches on Antigua and really not good for swimming.  more »
  • A stunning beach with beautiful water. Can be rough at times but just look for a clear way into the water  more »
  • Galley is far from a 4-5 star resort, more like a high class campground. Service is terrible, rooms.  more »
