Unless you are staying in an all inclusive resort here I wouldn't visit this beach more than once. Pretty much all amenities are for all inclusive guests and if you are not you can access them, not even paying. The Sandals ocupies more than 3/4 of this beach, leaving a little to another resort there and a couple of restaurants.... More

After checking other beaches on the island came to conclusion that the "close-to-home-one" - Dickenson - is really the best .

One of many decent beaches on Antigua quite 'commercialised' with even a Sandals resort along the beach but plenty of sunbeds and bars.

I stayed at the Rex Halcyon which is right on this beach and it was so beautiful. Somedays have some sea weed, mostly on the right side beach. The left side beach is the best and they have some local bars and shops. Lots of cruise ship vacationers come to the beach for a day trip. You can rent chairs... More

We spent the day off a cruise ship at this beach. Very close to the port and the taxis was like 4.00 each. The are plenty of chairs and umbrellas and if you get there early you can have a chair front row. The water was clear and the beach is clean. Plenty of places to have lunch and a... More

We were off a cruise ship and wanted to go to a close beach. The beach was very nice and the water was calm. I knew it would be crowded because of the cruise ship but there were enough chairs. This is the same beach that sandals uses and it is beautiful. I was able to swim down to Sandals... More

We spent a day here on a cruise. The beach is only 15 minutes by taxi from the cruise terminal. There are several restaurants on the beach. You can rent chairs. The water was fairly calm and the bottom sandy. We enjoyed our day here and lunch at Ana's.

We stayed at the end, by Halcyon Cove Resort. Lovely sand, warm water. There are a few sales people, but they are perfectly friendly. Our favourite was "Michael". You can hear him coming from miles away, but he was a really funny, nice guy/
