The beach is beautiful. We were there in July. Our vacation was organized in a way that we would visit a different beach every day, renting umbrellas and chairs whenever possible. Ffryes did not offer any rental option (may be because of the low season?),...More

Beautiful crystal clear and calm water, powder white sand, gorgeous hills surrounding the water and the soft lap of the waves. This is luxury.

Great beach! It is the official beach if you are staying at Cocobay Resort so you will not have much trouble enjoying its relaxing environment and beautiful scenery while staying at this resort. Calm and turquoise colored beauty.

My favorite beach in Antigua. Ffryes is easily accessible via bus from the West bus station in St. John's. Enjoy a nice rum punch at Dennis' restaurant, directly adjacent to the beach.
