Pigeon Beach was the first and last beach we went to during our 9 days in Antigua. The sand is not going to win awards for color or fine-ness, but the water is beautiful and there are few rocks/coral to worry about. Pros: lots of FREE SHADE (and sun is behind you most of the day as it faces northwest-ish);... More

The colour of the water and sand is what most people imagine an idyllic beach to be like. Couple with that picnic areas and playground for the children then it's the perfect spot for a family to spend a day relazing. The photos speak for themselves.

Pigeon Beach is the best bit of sand near to Falmouth Harbour. Make sure you visit Catherine's Cafe Plage for lunch. Best food in the area and live music on Sunday. Have lunch sit on beach and then take a paddle of swim.
