This could be a nice beach as there appears to be a dump near by, there was standing water and it attracted attracted sand flies and dogs, cats and all sorts. The beach is nice and if the surrounding ares were improved is worth a visit, but there are many other better beaches on the island.

We recently got to spend some time at this beach at the end of a day-long tour of Antigua as part of a shore excursion (the cruise line contracted through Rendezvous Antigua).

This could be a nice beach, but it is a dumping ground near by, there are a few abandoned plots in the area, and there was stood water and that probably attracted the sand flies. We had strong deet on and still got attacked, so made a hasty retreat to the car. The beach is quite attractive and in the... More

This will be my last visit to Fort Bay Beach. When we arrived, a pack of emaciated stray dogs (including their pups) decided to descend around our vehicle and they stayed until we left. They soiled this once beautiful beach with their excrement, and there was no-one around to clean-up or chase them away. No wonder the sandy beach was... More
