I often spend a half a day at Pidgeon Beach. What makes it a favourite is because it's peaceful, has a lovely view (with classy yachts and Falmouth hill beyond), and you can get a drink and a snack at the little restaurant when you're famished, at a reasonable cost. Their bathroom is also very handy. Yes, the road to... More

Visited here with a group of 9. Had a lovely meal here. Staff was very accommodating letting us move tables and play music. Great beach.

I think this is the best beach in English Harbor. You have to go over a hill on a narrow road to get there but its worth it. A long stretch of sand with plenty of shady spots to sit. Clear water even tough its a harbor entrance. The locals use this beach so you have a great diverse crowd.... More

Only spent an hour and a half here from about 11 am, whilst going round the island. Beach was very quiet, there weren't many people there at all. Goats roamed around the beach too, which we thought was novel! The Bar to the right of the beach, as you look to sea was only just opening and the Restaurant was... More

yet another wonderful white sandy beach, but watch out for the high cost of chairs and umbrellas ($25 for 30 minutes). Good facilities available for snack and changing

Just come back from a day spent touring around Antigua in a hire car and this was the nicest beach we visited. Soft sand, lots of trees near the edge for shade and very pretty. Fantastic lunch in Catherine's Cafe also. Would recommend.

We couldn't be bothered to hire a car and stumbled across this beach whilst exploring beyond Nelson's dockyard. It was very peaceful and, although we didn't eat there, we understand that Catherine's Place (which has relocated here) is one of the best places to eat.

A beautiful beach. We enjoyed the swim there. Small ships were tendering their passengers in and they had BBQ's going. Beach is at bottom of hill. If you go up the hill and then down you will come to Nelson's Dockyard...takes about 12 mins to go and about 17 mins to get back to beach since you have to walk... More
