We visited this lovely little beach a few times throughout the week as it was only about a 10 min walk over the hill from our hotel, the Antigua Yacht Club. It certainly is a nice place to enjoy a quick swim.

This beach is generally calm. There's not a big "dip" to get into the water. There are some fun sea creatures that lurk around (someone said they saw a crab and some colourful fish). Being terrified of fish myself, I generally go in the water...More

Watch the boats go in and out of Falmouth Harbor while enjoying the clear waters of Antigua. Pretty good snorkeling spot too.

This was our last stop on our Pink Panther tour, and we all agreed we could have done without it. It’s a lovely beach, but not different from the resort.

The sea is simply BLUE.. so blue.. And many pigeons around. Very relaxing. But do take your own beverages etc. Not very luxurious.

we rented a taxi from Jolly Harbour and toured the country. Our driver suggested to stop here for a swim and a couple beverages before going to lunch close by. Sand was great, swimming was good. Some shelters are available.

There is more than one route. If you are fit and brave, there is an 'over the top' walk that is quite high and involves a bit of scrambling and some rough terrain. This is about a mile. The road walk is about half an hour... More
