We were driving around in Antigua when we discovered this stunning beach. If you are not staying at the resort, you can access the beach from the Old Road village on the far right side of the beach. The beach itself is gorgeous with green hills surrounding the bay on both sides, smooth white sand, and clear turquoise water. Even... More

A little tricky to find with no amenities if you're staying at the resort. Nice for a quiet walk. No cruise ship crowds here.

While this beach has a private resort, all Antigua Beaches are open to the public . We couldn't park at Resort, but just down the road, we could park and entered the beach on the far right side. There is a small wooden building on the beach selling Jewelry, shells, etc - that's where I met Gwyneth and enjoyed a... More

Writing about the Blue Spa in Carlisle Bay Antigua.....amazing spa treatment. 50 minutes west indian massage......medium pressure.....with emphasis on feet.....pressure points. Had major headache going into the massage....within 10 minute the headache was completely gone. The techniques used and pressure used on 4 focal points of my feet were intense and worth every penny of the USD 150 spent. Dale... More

We are staying in the Carlisle Bay resort and we can't believe how beautiful it is. It doesn't seem real. The crystal blue water of this cove beach is surrounded by mountains with natural rainforest. I haven't seen any other beach on the island, but I don't need anything better than this.

we went here just to drop people off from the catamaran tour, I was astonished at the huge number of jellyfish in the water, frightening.
