From all the beaches we visited, this was the busiest by far. But it's not necessary in a bad way and it was very enjoyable. And I guess since it was mid August, low season, no ferry in town, I did not really experience real...More

What a wonderful day it was at Dickenson Bay in Antiqua. The beach is long and smooth with wonderful soft sand. The water is shallow and calm and you can walk out a very long way! Glorious! You can pop into any of the local...More

Beautiful water but note it is active with a few places to eat, Ana's is the best, along with Sandal's and a couple other hotels. They launch a few tours from the water too.

In our view one of the best beaches in Antigua, but it depends what you're looking for. There are three hotels on this beach, Sandals, Halcyon Cove and Siboney Beach club, but it never feels busy, it's a great walk from end to end with...More

We took a cab to this beach from the cruise port. The cab driver arranged to come pick us up 4 hours later. Rented chairs and umbrella. Rented a jet ski....so much fun. Great spot for a beach day.
