This used to be one of the best beaches in Antigua and Barbuda. Although it still attracts people of all ages, especially on Labour Day and early morning sea-bathers , the elements seem to have taken its toll. Recent storms have displaced much of its...More

Easily accessible, clean and spacious. It is a lovely place to spend time at. Even including a walk around Fort James, built to protect the harbour. There are enough bars to cater for food and drink, and even at busy times, the area is big...More

A lovely quiet beach with a small bar/restaurant, stopped here at the end of an island bike tour. Drinks were a bit overpriced but you are on the beach so its expected, food was lovely

Great beach 30mins walk from town. Would definitely recommend to anyone. We lived along Fort road for months and never had any problems in Antigua. Exercise common sense as you would living in any country and you will have a great time.
