This is one of the only beaches along the west coast that I've found with shade from trees you can sit under at the beach, which is wonderful. However, the water is milky and it's much clearer at Darkwood Beach just along a little bit if you like to see the bottom when you are swimming.

Valley Church was the nearest beach to our villa, loungers and parasols are provided. The restaurant on the beach, The Nest' provided wholesome food from quite an extensive menu. The bar had a good list of cocktails and often there would be a beer offer. Good value for money and friendly staff.

Very pretty beach. It wasn't too crowded when we went since there weren't much cruise ships in town and the water was a most beautiful shade of turquoise.

There are more popular beaches in Antigua but if you want to try to avoid some of the crowds (especially when cruise ships are in) this is a great beach. The water is beautiful, the beach isn't too crowded, not too many sales people and a great concession for drinks and eats. Good amount of sand for a nice walk... More

We researched several places to visit when we were in port in Antigua. We decided on a couple options then when we got off the boat we took a peek at what the taxis had to offer for pricing, etc. When you get off the boat be sure to walk out of the hussle and bussle to where private taxis... More

We looked at several places to visit when we were in port in Antigua. Very, very glad that we chose Valley Church. When we got off the boat, we went outside of the hussle and bussle to other taxis that were cheaper. Not sure of the price but it was cheaper than the operators inside the gates for sure. It...

All I can saw is WOW!. The most beautiful water I have ever seen. Enjoyed the day, rode jet ski's. Restaurant right on the beach. I think my wife wants to move here. The area away from the beach wasn't much to look at but we had a nice tour from the self proclaimed(maybe it was true) president of the... More

Antigua was one of the ports on my cruise April 29th 2015. My girlfriend and her family decided to go to this beach after researching it and seeing great reviews. This place did not disappoint at all. It cost 16 dollars per person round trip from the cruise port. When we arrived there were a few people coming up asking... More

The most beautiful peaceful beach! Turquoise water like none other! We were fortunate to be there on only non cruise days by chance! We were fortunate to share it with a few local families, awesome families at that! The Nest.....delicious!

Valley Church beach is a beautiful, quiet beach with some nice amenities ( convenient snack bar/restaurant for burgers, sodas, etc). However, the sand there is really, really coarse- as in really tough for me to even walk on. Not sure why, because we didn't find this type of sand anywhere else on the island- but take your water shoes, flip... More
