Galleon Beach is a broad crescent of powdery sand, great for walking or sunbathing. At the far end of the beach is the rocky trail up to the ruins of Fort Charlotte, with great views of English Harbour. We enjoyed all of that, but for us the best part was the snorkeling, just past the rocks at the far end of the beach. At first saw only a few small fish, but when we swam around the rocks, we came upon a small shipwreck (or maybe two) in the shallows, teeming with fish, including large tangs, schools of yellowtail snapper and a good-sized barracuda. It was definitely the best snorkeling we found on Antigua, and it was quite a lot of fun! (You can drive or walk from Falmouth or English Harbour, but we preferred taking the water taxi from Nelson's Dockyard.)
