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.

Dickenson Bay is one of the best beaches in Antigua, the sea is clear and calm, and great for swimming and snorkelling

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

Our initial visit to the beach was to try to windsurf as we had been made aware that Tony's Watersports were based there, which they are. Sadly for me the windsurfing gear was all packed away as the 'season; had finished but it didn't spoil our enjoyment of this super beach. The water wasn't quite as clear as the beach... More

We fancied venturing out to a different beach and picked Dickenson Bay as it was close to the hotel. The water is incredible - we turned left as you get onto the beach so away from Sandals and Halycon guests. It's a beautiful stretch of beach with some lovely little coves and quieter areas. We had food and drink at... More

When disembarking from our cruise ship, they had several officers walking around, making sure all the tourists were fine. I asked one of them, what beach he would recommend, and he said Dickenson Bay. There is a beach close to the cruise ship terminal, but he stated that it has some secluded areas, that may not be so safe. We... More

Just a wonderful place, just how a postcard holiday should be, look and feel. Only downside is sandals, but cannot win them all.
