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!

This public beach is not too big, and most of it is occupied by a resort, but the sand is very fine, the water calm and it is very picturesque. Snorkelling wasn't great and the constant buzz of salespeople trying to sell you everything from activities to drugs was slightly annoying. Do not bring valuables as there are a lot... More

The highlights of my visits to Long Bay have to be the white sand and clear blue water that instantly creates a picture-perfect memory. Delving deeper, the snorkelling is great too. If you're on the look out for Blue Tangs, Sergeant Majors and the odd Angel Fish, you're in for a treat!

Long Bay is a family beach on the Eastern side of the Island of Antigua. it is close to Devil's Bridge. The beach was attractive to me as there was a little walk between parking and getting to the water. There was a little pool for toddlers which I found appealing to families with toddlers. I visited the beach on... More

We stayed at the Verandah and this beach is outside the complex so we decided to have a short walk to see it. The beach is ok, however the locals are very off-putting. Before we even set foot on the beach we were approached to see if we wanted boat trips, food, sun loungers, drugs!!! A shame and not really... More

Long Bay Beach: The beach was grainier than other beaches I've visited but still lovely. It was powdery but not the super soft sand. The water was crystal clear. There are sea grape trees for shade. Just be careful because we took shade under the sea grape trees and it had black ants and bees. You can rent lounge chairs,... More

The sand and water is pretty nice. Water is nice and warm. It is not very crowded. You can do some snorkeling, not that impressive though. If you are staying at the hotels in the area, the stingray city boat will actually pick you up from here. When you pull into the bay, you would notice a big tree on... More

Amazing public beach just around the corner from The Verandah resort, but well worth the short stroll to spend a morning or afternoon there. The most amazing white sand and clear blue sea, with good snorkelling straight off of the right corner of the beach.

We rented two chairs with an umbrella. Nice day, There was a restaurant there, service saw killer slow, food was lousy and the service too. The beach is nice but you are better off at Darkwood Beach.
