My family of 5, which includes my one-year-old son, my five-year-old son, my husband, me, and my mom, recently returned from a 7-day Southern Caribbean cruise, and Antigua was one of our ports of call. There, we enjoyed a very relaxing beach day at Dickenson Bay Beach. We also witnessed the best jet ski experiences when we saw the guys... More

One of 365 beautiful with clear waters of Antigua. With stunning views right in front while swimming. Leave your tech toys in the room cause Antigua is the place to get back to the beautiful nature of their waters.

I went to this beach due to the good reviews here on TA. The taxi dropped us off ($3 pp) and right away a surly guy rented us a couple of loungers and umbrellas--$30.00. Ouch. The water and sand were nice, the water not being as warm as I'd heard Caribbean waters generally are. The real downer here is the... More

This is a beautiful beach. Water is delightful. Beautiful water but no waves. Nice clean beaches. Used to be even better before sandals moved in. Few resturants but would say they are so so. It's a nice place to stay. What I would say I am not sure it's the best for people getting off a cruise ship. With sandals... More

I have a Timeshare condo at Antigua Village. My wife and I love walking along this beach just before sunset. Beautiful sand and crystal clear water.

Very pretty beach! Areas to swim, relax under the umbrella, walk along the beach, snorkel, eat and enjoy the day. No waves is the only down fall.

One of the best beaches I've been to! Clean, calm and inviting water. Beautiful white sand and crystal clear water. There is also a food beach side restaurant / Bar with some of the best seafood! The staff is friendly and funny. (Its the one with all the different currencies stuck to the walls.) Really enjoyed this beach experience. definitely... More

This beach is very beautiful. It's quite waters and soft waves will make you never want to leave. The sand is soft and powder white. The water is as clear and as beautiful as the pictures you see. You will enjoy this warm Caribbean water I m sure.

We have been to dickensons bay a couple of times while on a cruise. It is by far the most gorgeous beach that we have been to. White sand and clear blue water. Pure luxury. Didn't want to leave. Sunloungers and umberellas available to rent. Free wi fi at the bar. Can't wait to return next year..
