Beautiful Spot to spend a day on the beach in the Carabbean. Friendly people, plenty of sun beds, shade from Palm Trees and plenty of space for beach walking. Excellent beach bar on site serving nice food at a reasonable price. One tip is not to go there when the cruise ships are in, can get a bit busy. Ok... More

We paid a taxi $16 round trip each from the cruise port, and our driver was professional and on time. Beware they "don't have change" so bring small bills with you. Nice beach, you can rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for $20. They have a bar with food, although we didn't eat there so we can't attest to the... More

We have travelled extensively and this is one of the best beaches we have been to. There were no more than 25 people on the beach being July with fewer cruise ships. Water colour is amazing and clear. So good we visited 3 times from Mamora.

We decided to let the locals show us a beach when we left the cruiseship. We did not book an excursion with the ship, it was approximately 25 minutes drive to the beach. What an awesome and amazing beach. The views were breathtaking, the waves weren't rough but fun for the kids and they played in the water all day.... More

Absolutely breathtaking beach - when it's empty but horrid when thousands of cruise ship passengers descend to shatter the calm.

The last time we were in Antigua, there was too much wind so Antigua officially closed all of the beaches. As a place that boasts 365 beaches, we were determined to get to one this time. About a dozen of us off the Carnival Conquest cruise ship grabbed a cab and went to the beach. For some reason, the cab... More

Went there from the ship, recommended by the taxi driver. A little far, about 20 min but worth the trip. Perfect sand. Perfectly clear and warm water.

We travel often and have been to many beaches and this one is now my favorite. The facilities are well maintained.

Arrived at the cruise port and found a wonderful local who recommended to go to Valley Church beach ($8 cab ride each way per person) as the waves were calm and there were places to get lunch. Unfortunately, we didn't decide to go to the beach until 11 am and by the time we got there, all beach chairs were... More
