For our style, this beach was too busy. If you want bar, restaurant, water sports and lots of people this place is for you. For us, we'd prefer a more secluded beach with less people. The water was nice, but not the best. It wasn't clear at all. Ft. James Beach was much better. Less crowded, cheaper to get too,... More

Very nice beach in Antigua. Pretty, but there is a drop off. Warm water and nice sand. Able to get chairs and umbrellas and a bar right there.

One of the loveliest beaches in Antigua, white sand, emerald green sea and perfect bathing. Plus the beach shack restaurant is brilliant as well. Pam's wellness centre is a must; just $25 for a top to toe massage that guarantees you will be relaxed and totally chilled out, all this within the sound of the sea.

This is a beautiful beach with gentle waves. It is perfect to wade in. The water is so blue but not as crystal clear as others we have been too. The sand was great and soft. Wonderful to play in. There was a pretty sharp drop off as we walked in but then you are able to walk out quite... More

Hurricane Gonzalo had passed through the island the day before we arrived. The staff at the beach was working hard to clean up downed trees and limbs. The electric was off. We had a perfectly wonderful time here and everyone was so friendly and did their best to make our visit enjoyable. The beach is beautiful, the views are great.... More

This is the most stunning beach that I have ever visited. The colour of the water and surrounding mountains are breathtaking. It is true that the water isn't as clear as some other beaches and there are a lot of shells so you have to watch where you are walking but these disadvantages are more than offset by the spectacular...

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