On the far-eastern coast, you'll find coral reefs in water so shallow that you can actually walk out to them. Along the beach are the Long Bay Hotel and the rambling Allegro Resort Pineapple Beach.

This was yet another beautiful beach that we visited during our stay on Antigua. I am starting to feel like a broken record as all the beaches we visited were breathtaking.

easy access to snorkel right off the beach, the reef is close and waters calm and clear on most days. Lots of chairs to rent, food for purchase, and a really great restaurant on the beach. This beach is very busy with cruise ship tourists when 4 large ships are in port. Plan to go early.

Beach is nice in Long Bay. We had rented a car and were looking for a nice place to snorkle. A really nice local woman recommended we try Long Bay. She said we could walk on to the reef and she was right! We rented a beach chair from a local restaurant for $5 for the day...dropped our stuff and... More

We spent a few hours there on a Shore Excursion Tour during a Cruise. Beautiful clean beach. Not too crowded when we were there. A must for cruisers and about 9 miles from St. John's where the ships dock if you go on your own.

This beach was in the next bay along from our resort, had the opportunity to walk here in just a few minutes. This is a beach worth seeing and taking in: there are corals walking distance into the sea, and snorkelling can be good here. Watch out for the poisonous tree!
