Our cabbie dropped us off here from the cruise ship. Easy ride. This is a beautiful beach where Sandals Resort is located. Lots of water activities are available. There are easily accessible bars and eateries from the beach. A worthwhile visit on this island tour.

Beautiful white sand beach infront of three hotels that that is shared by all, plenty of room to walk and find a bit of sand to yourself. Water is clear and warm and good for swimming and water sports, this beach is a pickup point for excursions as catamarans pull up to beach to pick passengers up, recommended !

We have a time share at Antigua Village on Dickenson Bay. Antigua village is older but very quaint and the people are very helpful and wonderful. On Dickenson Bay we have our coffee every morning overlooking the water and deciding what our day will hold. Many time we wait for the lady to come with fresh veggies and fruit for... More

The bay is protected by a large reef, the water is clear and warm, the bay excellent for swimming and boating. Don't miss it, go put your toes in the warm white sand!

Protected by a large reef, the Bay is perfect for swimming, sailing and jet skiing. The sand is soft and white, the waters clear and the air temperature always perfect.

This is Dickenson Bay. There are only 3 resorts here. Antigua Beach Village, Sandals & Rex Resorts. What a wonderful beach area on the island with 360 beaches.

We stopped here for a few hours while on a cruise. It was highly recommended, so we gave it a try. I was disappointed in the water clarity here. We even ventured to the very north end of the beach were the peninsula with cliffs offered some protection from the wind and currents. But the water here was cloudy as... More

We stayed at Sandals on Dickenson Bay in Antigua just last week and what a week we had. I have shared plenty of pictures of views of Dickenson Bay from our resort and along the beach as well so you can get an idea of what it looks like. We had a fantastic time at Sandals, this was our 3rd... More
