Castaways beach is one of the best resourced yet unspoiled beaches of Antigua. The bar of same name provides shelter for the occasional downpour and a great atmosphere around happy hour makes a perfect wake up from a relaxing day on this carribean beach. This...More

We have been in Antigua before and we used to love Castaways. However, this time the place looked really run down and tired. I am hoping that this is because this is off season and it will get spruced up before peak season starts

Staff were all lovely, drinks not outrageously expensive and great sunset views! Varied menu, lots of indian choices, but my husband was sad they were out of mutton. Unfortunately, I can't sympathize with him, but he was sad, nonetheless. :)

If (like us) you’re from the UK and not super-rich, then Antigua is going to hit you as expensive. Only Monte Carlo has been more pricey for me. Taking that as a given, Castaways is no more expensive than the other restaurants and bars in...More

Visiting Jolly Beach for the day, this local gem proved itself in short time. Arriving on the beach in front of castaways, the owner/manager let us use the beach chairs for free when we said we would be buying local beers. This place looked a...More

Not 100% sure but there is a shop might be easier to buy one there and if you can not take it back with you leave out with on of the local children who play on the beach there.
