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 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! You can also see this... More

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
