Cannot fault this beach!
Aug 2021
We enjoyed some amazing food at the beach bar. The jerk chicken was on point, as was the rice and peas. The fish was also done to perfection. The owner of the beach bar (and her son) were very friendly and made us feel welcome, even though we were unable to sit at the place to eat due to covid.
We enjoyed a perfect sunset there too.

Easy to get to

Amazing beach with plenty to do - there’s an inflatable obstacle course on the water and jet-ski’s for hire from the locals. Darkwood is great for snorkelling, we saw starfish and lots of interesting fish.

One of the best

Very clean beach and was extremely easy to get to. Was not too busy when we came. They have Jetski rentals, beach chair and umbrella rentals and food right on the beach.

Beach Gem
Jun 2021
First full day on island and stumbled into this gem. We are staying at an air b&B within a mile of here. Easy umbrella and chair rentals. Great drinks and food and the local beach bar. LeRon was amazing and informative. The beach was beautiful. Almost no one around all day. When you think of Caribbean Paradise, this beach and day is what it is about.

My fav beach on the island!
Jan 2021 • Couples
Darkwood is a famous beach in Antigua, and on an island of 365 beaches, it, for me is the best! Loads of sand to sunbath on, good surf for swimming, west facing for sunsets... it’s utter perfection!

Day out at the beach
Dec 2020 • Family
What a beach, beautiful white sands clear blue sea. Loungers to hire and a great beach bar serving some lovely cold drinks and food. We stayed for sun set which was one of the best we saw.

Darkwood was spectacular and SECLUDED

One of the most awesome secluded beaches as I was the only one there . . .me and my cab driver who I paid to stay and hang out . . . I hear cruise ships send some people over but they are generally hit n run

MY OWN BEACH!
Aug 2020 • Friends
Traveling during a pandemic has its pros. I had this beach to myself. It’s beautiful, but was bummed that everything was closed. We took an island tour and beach hopped. All of the beaches on this island are beautiful you don’t necessarily have to travel to all of them. But it was nice for a change of scenery

Good beach for a day trip
Feb 2020
Besides the immediate company I experienced this beach with, the beach is beautiful and a perfect place to swim, lay out, snorkel and there is a little restaurant/bar if you get hungry or thirsty. Wind is blocked on that side of the island. Some days were a little crowded for spurts of time while cruise ship people had a few hours to burn. I will go back again but this time leave the bad seed dude behind.
