What a wonderful day it was at Dickenson Bay in Antiqua. The beach is long and smooth with wonderful soft sand. The water is shallow and calm and you can walk out a very long way! Glorious! You can pop into any of the local...More

Beautiful water but note it is active with a few places to eat, Ana's is the best, along with Sandal's and a couple other hotels. They launch a few tours from the water too.
