We had a great time rented jet ski's and went back the next day. The water was beautiful but it was a little cloudy could not see your feet. The water was warm and calm but there was a deep dip that you had the climb to get out of the water, it was on most of the beach but... More

We took a taxi from the cruise ship terminal to Valley Church Beach - recommended by our taxi driver! We were not disappointed! The water is crystal clear, with white sand. Beach umbrellas cost $5 and beach chairs $10 each. The open-air restaurant has free wi-fi if you need to connect! The bathrooms were very clean. I cannot say enough... More

Seriously this beach is one of the most gorgeous spots in Antigua! The sand is soft and white/pink. The beach stretch is long enough to walk, but not feel like you're going to far. The water is crystal clear and a heavenly blue. The water is so calm it is excellent for swimming and lounging. The Nest beach bar has... More

To believe it you have to see it. I have never seen water with this color except in pictures and in movies and I always thought that these are airbrushed or fixed somehow. No matter what we say in this reviews you won't get the picture until you see it with your own eyes in person. If you are in... More

We walked this beach a bit before a dive we had with Jolly Divers (who are located right on this beach). The beach is long, white sand, clear water, and while we were there (around 8-9am on a weekday) it was almost empty and just gorgeous!! Wish we'd had time to make it back here!

Took a municipal bus from town to get there (1.50$ per person) and we got there in no time. From the second you get there, you be in awe of how beautiful this beach is. Soft, pale sand and clear water. Not too busy to get a nice spot. Rented a jet ski for the cheapest price I have ever... More

This was my third trip to Antigua but my first time going to Valley Church beach.It took about 25 minutes from the ship and around $10 each way with a full cab.The more people the less money.It is a busy beach and the cabs all come there.There is even a cabby coordinator that organizes all the cabs and pickup times...

We went to this beach in July 2013. We had hired a car otherwise I think you would have difficulty getting to this beach by foot or public transport. The sea was a beautiful turquiose colour,so clear and warm. The sand was lovely, soft and white. The thing I really lovely about this beach is how deserted it was, the... More

This beach was stunning, we were only there for about an hour as it was a stop as part of a tour. I have never seen so many shells on a beach! My 2 sons had great fun finding all the different shells they could, we have bought a few home with us as well! The beach was long, sandy... More

Arrived at this beach mid to late afternoon. We were only in Antigua for the day, off the cruise ship, and had previously been to Pigeon Beach & Darkwood Beach. Valley Church beach looked beautiful in review photos, but I knew it got extremely busy on cruise days, so had every intention of avoiding it, but our driver took us... More
