Valley Church Beach is a must see beach in Antigua. The clear water, relaxing environment, tourist and local merchants were a pleasure.

Great beach, very quiet and and calm waters. Clear waters and powdery sand. There is a resturant bar nearby called Castaways that is nice and offers free wifi. Drinks were well made! Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to rent. Jetskis and snokeling amenities were also available. Ths beach is in my top 10 favorites list!

This beach is quiet and unspoilt but has a bar and great swimming. If you have a car access and parking are easy.

Came here on the advice of a taxi driver. It cost $25 round trip from the cruise pier. The driver waited for us which was nice. Don't be fooled by your cruise line. Take the trip and you'll be glad you did. Full amenities for rent and restroom facilities available as well.

Great beach. Very beautiful views. Water was very relaxing. We had a great time. Had a bit of a drop off at the water line, but other than that was very nice. Not much to see for snorkelers though. Went out on some jet skis and had a great time.

We stopped for a short while to just walk the beach on our way to South Coast Horizon. It was good for doing a little shelling.

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
