We spent the day here in the first week of August- our cruise ship was docked in Antigua for the day and we wanted to just relax on a beach all day... this was perfect. 20 minutes cab ride from St. John, we got there and rented beach chairs ($5 each and $10 for a large umbrella). The water is... More

A very nice beach with parking, just off the main coastal road. Nest beach bar/restaurant is good for a drink or snacks. Jet skis and other water sports available. Some facilities are only open on cruise ship days which is a shame, as the downside is the influx of hundreds of people. Get there early if it is a cruise... More

Beach is white sand, not the finest in the Caribbean but nice - water is turquoise blue and calm; it is clear but not enough to snorkel in. Quickly gets deep but our young children still enjoyed as it is so calm. The nest is the only building there - and is a basic restaurant and bar with washrooms. The... More

We stopped by to take some photos and to see the beach. It's a really nice spot for family outings and the water looks great.

This beach is like a little bit of paradise, white sand beaches, beautiful blue sea. Restaurants if you need them but also if you walk a bit absolute peace and calm where you can relax and dream your days away

Soft sand, turquoise water, just a beautiful place in general. A great restaurant there, changing rooms, bathrooms, and a killer view.

Breath taking beach. Everything you can dream of for a beach. Sun loungers, parasols, friendly beach bar serving great pina coladas and the softest sand with clear blue waters.

This would be a 5 star beach however, I can only rate it overall at 3 stars. The private land holder gates reasonable access to the beach, diminishing its overall rating. It's great for kids wanting to walk up and down on sea shell searching (just little shells) - also for swimming in crystral clear water.

We chose this beach to spend the day on our cruise visit to Antigua. We loved this beach and it was probably the best beach we visited during our 5 island Caribbean cruise. We rented chairs for $5 and an umbrella for $10 for the day. We got a taxi from the port for $6 pp each way. He arranged... More

I've been to this beach 2 times out of the last 3 years, and i'd class it as one my favourite. It's not as busy as Dickenson Bay, the facilities are better value (jet ski's, beds and beers are cheaper), and the bay is simply beautiful. The only downside we've observed is that the nearby hills tend to attract the... More
