We took a day to explore multiple beaches on the Caribbean side of the island as we were staying on the Atlantic side. This beach did not disappoint! We had trouble finding parking at Turners, was not interested in the kid float park at Darkwood and stumbled upon Ffryes. We got two chairs under an umbrella for $15 and enjoyed a few hours here. Lunch was homemade and delicious (more pricey than expected -$20 for one shrimp plate, but very satisfying for two). The sand is pristine and the turquoise water color is exactly what we were looking for. Not meant for a snorkel beach - I would go to Turners or Long Bay for that!

Amazing day here

we arrived on the anthem of the seas and so pleased I did my research before arriving.

We booked a return taxi and managed to arrive quite a while before the beach became a little busier from cruise ship visitors, but they had an area reserved near the bar side of the beach, so still quiet our end

We ordered a few beers from those that rented out the beds, swam and chilled

We sat in the raised bar taking in the breathtaking views - drinks prices were reasonable.

We will definitely return

I visited Antigua on a cruise and I saw that Ffryes beach was listed as an excursion, so I was concerned that the beach would be overcrowded. Ffryes beach was also on a list of beaches provided by the taxi driver we hired, which also made me suspicious that it might be a tourist trap. However, my experience at Ffryes was extremely pleasant and it is a truly beautiful beach. It's not empty by any means, but the vibe was overall relaxed and it was not terribly crowded on the day we went. The taxi driver had a contact there with people who rented us chairs and umbrellas for the day. The sand was soft and the water was very calm for swimming. In summary, despite my misgivings regarding the potential for a crowded, overhyped beach, I highly enjoyed my day here.

We came here in late October when the pandemic meant that there were no cruise ships around. We literally had the beach to ourselves a couple of times. The bar/restauarant at the end (Dennis Cocktail Bar & Restaurant) has a really nice setting and the food is fine, but nothing special. Ffryes Beach is nice for swimming, but Little Fryes next door is better for snorkelling as there is a reef you can follow.

The beach here is lovely. Its a bit farther out from where the cruise ships dock. My daughter and i were thee February 3rd 2022. we had a lovely lady taking excellent care of all our drink needs on the beach. A nice gentleman took care of getting us chairs , a umbrella and WiFi so my daughter could play Pokemon go. The water is lovely. The view beautiful all you have to do is relax, and soak in the sweet island life. There are also some very lovely ladies that sell hand made jewelry, hand made cover ups all beautiful. If you visit Antigua i highly recommend you visit this beach and the lovely people who tend it.

While not my favorite beach that I visited I would go back. I happened to be there on a bit of a windy day which was less than comfortable in terms of sand blowing. The sand though is soft and lovely and the water is beautiful. I was not impressed by the restaurant and would bring my own food if I returned.

One of our favourite beaches we visited during our holiday. The clearest waters and surprisingly quiet! We hired a paddle board and kayak from Cheyvone at Padenterprise and a jet-ski from a local.

Note, Ffryes was a little tricky to navigate to by car.

Great beach, really enjoyed our stay there. Had a great time eating and drinking at the bar, made to feel very welcome. Jackie has a great voice, make sure you get her to sing.

We loved Ffryes, probably tied with Carlisle Bay for our favourite on the island. We were there in April and shared our section with maybe two of three other groups of people. Nice shady areas provided by palms and lovely clear water. Dennis' place is great for lunch and we had a lovely lunch there. Really recommend you visit this one.
