Dickenson Bay, Antigua

Dickenson Bay

A stretch of white, powdery sand approximately half a mile long, located on the North Westerly tip of the island. The beach is well positioned for drinks and eateries. Resorts nearby include Starfish Halcyon Cove (previously Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts). A wonderful restaurant juts out to sea on stilts, the Warri Pier, which is a delightful place to dine and watch the magnificent sunset. Click on the links to read my full solo reviews.

2. Galleon Beach

Galleon Beach at English Harbour, in the south of the island, is a small bay great for snorkelling. I saw a hawksbill turtle when I came here. It is quite common to see turtles and rays in this area apparently. There are walking trails behind the beach too which take you around to the Pillars of Hercules. I was brought here by boat when I stayed at an amazing room only resort, Admiral’s Inn.

5. Long Bay

Long Bay is positioned on the Eastern coast of Antigua, the Atlantic side. The beach is protected by a ring of coral keeping the water mostly calm. The coral provides good snorkelling and the resort Pineapple Beach Club is located here. Click on the link to read my full review of the hotel.

6. Mamora Bay

One of the calm, picturesque beaches at the St James Club resort. The beach is horseshoe shaped and popular for watersports due to the still water.

7. Crab Hill Beach

I had a lovely meal at OJ’s Beach Bar and Restaurant and walked along this beach afterwards. The beach is so beautiful I had my photo made into a canvass for my home. A lack of crowds, clear turquoise water and powdery white sand make this beach truly beautiful.
