When our cruise docked in Antigua we asked one of the local taxi guys to take us to a nice beach, not knowing what to expect. Thankfully he took us to Valley Church Beach which was absolutely stunning with beautiful white sand and crystal clear turquoise sea. It was so relaxing to walk along the front and there was a...

We visited this incredible gem after taking an island-wide taxi tour. We asked the cabbie to surprise us with a beautiful beach and he didn't disappoint! All I can say is WOW! The water was spectacular...brand new beach loungers (reasonably priced...two plus an umbrella was only $15), a lovely cafe and not too busy! It was the perfect way to... More

Lovely quiet beach, great restaurant called NEST, avoid the cruise ship hoards, taxis always around, lobsters bigger than anywhere else, what else can I say?

You will not be disappointed by this beach. If you're driving, lots of parking. Add to that a great little beach bar with good eats and clean restroom. There are reasonably priced umbrellas & chairs, $20 to cover two of you and for the most part the vendors will not pester you much, beyond one request. If you don't like... More

If you like pristine clean warm water, no waves and not a lot of people with infrastructure good enough for a nice day - this is your beach. We arrived via cruise ship and we went to the taxi stand which is well organized, and we got a taxi with Mr Thomas (plate 209) to the beach at $8 per... More

This might be the best beach I've ever been to. The water is a beautiful blue, a snorkeler I talked to said it wasn't the best for visibility though. The sand is white, it is a bit coarser than you might expect but I wouldn't say it is a problem. There is a bar, as well as beach chairs and... More

We have been too many beaches, this is outstanding! Especially when there is no cruise ships in town. We came early and had the whole thing beach to ourselfs! Water is not super clear, mayby because of winds etc. Free WiFi! Super, Super Super!

This is a quintessential Caribbean beach. Blue clear water, great swimming. There are good services, 20.00 US gets you an umbrella and two chairs. Drinks are reasonable, the restaurant is fine for lunch. Bathrooms were clean. We drove there and parked very close to our chairs. Only downside are the roaming vendors but they were not too bothersome.

Stopped there for 2 hours after taking a tour with local taxi. Fine sand beach, chairs and umbrellas for rent. Water sports available include jet ski, banana boat, paddle board. We were looking for parasailing, but were told that this beach is too calm for that. Enjoyed the fresh coconut drink for $5 each.
