We stopped here on a private sailing charter. The beach had about 6 people on it, the sand is powder soft and the water is so warm. Although you cannot snorkel here as visibility is not great, the views make up for it. You need to find out when the party boats arrive, because when they do, there are 100+... More

We drove around the whole island and found this beach. Pretty beach but hard to swim due to rocks but we did hang out for awhile.

I believe this is the most beautiful beach in Antigua. Even though there is a hotel there, it has been in existence for 50 years and has remained low key so does not take away from the wildness and beauty of the beach. I do not recommend this beach for children as at times there are large waves that young... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Galley Bay resort, separately reviewed, and that meant we had a front row seat to enjoy this gorgeous piece of Antigua for that entire period of time. Clearly, this is not an ideal spot for people who like swimming in the ocean or participating in boating, due to the rough waters,... More

We recently returned from Galley Bay resort on Galley Beach and had an amazing time on a incredible beautiful beach. We've traveled 3-4 times a year for several years, mainly in the Caribbean, and my husband thought it was the favorite beach of all times. The sand was amazing, the water a great temperature and thought it was rough when... More

Just as wonderful as Darkwood and clear. Really worth visiting some of the beaches Antigua has to offer.
