Great beach for kids

Lovely sandy beach, great parking and plenty of shade. Crystal clear see and great snorkelling, many fish around the headland.

This quiet beach is lovely. Not too big, crystal clear waters and lovely views all around. Nice picnic tables under big umbrellas, so plenty of shade. Had the pleasure of watching the locals haul in their fishing nets, wonderful!

As of all the 365 beaches in Antigua this is clean and worth a visit. Any sun worshipper will appreciate it.

We go to Pigeon Beach nearly every day when we stay in the area. It's a lovely beach, nice and safe for swimming and snorkelling. There is a little cafe/restaurant called Bumbkins which is great for a light snack/meal/ drinks. The staff are very friendly and the prices reasonable.

We found this small, beautiful and quiet beach only minutes from South Point resort. There is a shower/bathroom center there for public use for $1USD/$2.EC. Convenient Palapas with built in round tables and seating are scattered across the beach. Very nice laid back setting and the water is of course beautiful and tempting.

We walked to the beach from the Admiral's Inn, where we stayed at the Nelson's Dockyard. At the end of season it was very quiet , which we loved thoroughly! A gorgeous beach with white sand and beautiful clean water, with hilly backdrop and sailing yachts bobbing about.

one of the 365 beaches. Worth to visit, but not the highlight of a trip. Good location if you want to be on your own and chill out .

Delightful, small beach with plenty of shade. There is a restaurant and bar at one end but no public toilet facilities or showers.

Found Pigeon Beach on Sunday evening, where lots of local families were enjoying the sunshine and swimming. The beach was a little dirty and noisy compared to others on the island.

Spectacular beach away from the hustle. Nothing really there but a beach and a few other people. Nice place to relax for a few hours.
