Beautiful Beach

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..

We read about the beaches before arriving to the island during our cruise. Dickenson Bay was considered to be one of the best and after visiting Stingray City we ended up on this beach. The sand is perfect and the sea is just great! Not much to say about that. There are plenty of bars to get drinks food and... More

Spent lots of hours at this beach - the water is amazingly clear and warm, no waves, unless a boat goes by. Great spot to watch the sun go down.

Loved this beach- Caribbean postcard views, the water was crystal clear and calm. It was perfect for us, we had our 2 year old boy with us and he could play in the water very easily It was quite busy, but the beach and facilities were brilliant.

Came to Antigua on a cruise and decided to head down to Coconut Grove on a friend's recommendation. $4 per person taxi ride out to Dickenson Bay, which is breathtaking, and we found ourselves in paradise. Great location with beach chairs, lovely clear water and soft sand, bar within spitting distance of beach and fabulous food. We ended up spending... More

This is exactly the type of beach you think of when you imagine the Caribbean. A long white sand beach with calm, clear, turquoise water and tall palm trees at the back edge of the beach. I was here as part of a stop on a cruise and we were the only ship in port so the crowds were minimal.... More
