We spent a few hours here at Turners Beach during our taxi tour of Antigua. There is a clean and smart beach bar and restaurant - we had a couple of beers here and it was good to get out of the hot sun for a rest in the cool and shady bar. The water is lovely, warm and clean... More

We visited from a cruise ship. We had a lovely swim and a drink in one of the bars. It is a lovely beach, but crowded and somewhat noisy. It seems to be a favourite place for taxis to drop off cruise passengers. Overall a fairly good experience for a few hours on the beach.

This place is amazing!! With the mountains behind us, sitting on beautiful white puffy sand looking out at the incredibly turquoise water. I can't get enough. A must go!!

We took our books to Turners Beach for the day, but we only read a few chapters. We were too mesmerized by the sights, sounds and smells of Turners Beach. The sparkle and glint of the bright tropical sun reflecting off aquamarine and turquoise waters. Barely a cloud on the intense blue sky. A slight tropical breeze floating through the... More

Very nice beach. Got rotated in the surf a bit. Walked up to OJ's restaurant and had delicious grilled red snapper.

Nice Beach but while we were there they dropped off bus after bus from the cruise ships. There were a lot of vendors that almost harassed you for their business. We didn't stay long.

Great place to relax, grab a drink, and enjoy the weather and surroundings. Great and expansive beach, and the water is crystal clear. The breeze is just right, and the sun was abundant. Sunsets here are also very nice. The facilities are well kept and proper, and the food/beverage service was excellent. I feel for the people that are rushed,... More

We stopped here for an hour on an island bus tour. Not long enough I'm afraid. A lovely beach, only spoiled by loud parents, shouting at their loud children......and generally having no consideration for anyone else's peace. Cafes near by. Handy if you have your own shade umbrellas with you.
