Darkwood Beach

A snorkellers’ paradise, this peaceful yet easily accessible beach is a haven for those wanting to get away from it all with crystal clear waters, pure white sand, and a small rocky area to one side that’s perfect for exploring with a snorkel.

With shaded areas and a small beach bar providing drinks and snacks, this stunning beach is a firm favorite with locals and visitors alike.

Turners Beach, Crab Hill

Another stunning deserted island hideaway, overlooked by the ruins of an old sugar mill, this beach offers shallow waters, breathtaking scenery, and watersports, should you wish to up the pace a little.

There’s a small beach café selling, among other culinary delights, conch fritters that simply must be tried.


Long Bay

Backed by two hotels, Long Bay is not necessarily a quiet beach, but it is worth a visit just to be able to venture out to the coral reef just offshore. The water is so shallow you can easily walk to the reef and it’s a fantastic spot for snorkelling as you can well imagine.

There are beach bars and a few small shops to stock up on souvenirs too.

Whatever beach you choose, Antigua really does have the perfect beach for everyone. So pick your favorite then sit back, relax, and feel the powdery white sand between your toes.
