This was one of our last beaches that we visited. It turned out to be our favourite. It was small and somewhat secluded. We also visited in July so that could be a factor. The sand is so soft and the water was VERY clear and calm. We went more than once and had similar experiences. The view is to... More

So many beautiful beaches here. When we were here only about six other couples so it was great. We will continue to seek other beaches, as so many hidden treasures.

So, we ended up here as part of the fab buggy tour I have already reviewed on. We were pretty mucky so went straight into milky water. It was amazing. No sooner had we gone in, a stingray crossed our path. We know not to go near the tail and we are not saying he/she was friendly but they hung... More

Went to this beach a week ago, we had a great time. For $20 Marlin "too tall" set us up with chairs, umbrellas, and a bucket of beers. They offer massages, food, drinks, and wifi on the beach. I would def. go back to this beach. *only reason I gave this place 4 instead of 5 stars is because one... More

approx 30-40 minute cab ride from St Johns. Beach chairs are available for rent, they will charge you $4 per chair. Chairs are not super comfortable, plastic and no padding. view is super, even on a cloudy day. Jet skis can be rented, locals will offer $50/ 1/2 hr. You may be able to negotiate a better deal..... Food is... More

This Caribbean beach is directly by the road, is very nice the view in front Montserrat but you have more beautiful in Antigua.

As for the inflatable park well I've not laughed so much in ages, we all had so much fun and the kids are... More

Fourth stop in our Caribbean cruise, I have to say my favorite location! The place was everything you can think of - white soft sand, crystal water, it was stunning! Very relaxing, quiet, not a lot of people and great service. We had our local beer, reasonable prices. Will have to come back again, recommended if you go on your... More
