Beautiful Antigua Beach

There are 365 beaches on Antigua, one for each day of the year. The great majority rest inside the calm, protected waters of the island's Caribbean side.  Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay, located along the island's developed northwestern coast, are the place to go for those who want the fully-loaded resort beach experience. Enjoy casinos and great diving with offshore wrecks and reefs.
 
Temperatures generally range from the mid-seventies in the winter to the mid-eighties in the summer. Annual rainfall averages only 45 inches, making it the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, and  the northeast trade winds are nearly constant, flagging only in September. Low humidity year-round.

Antigua is blessed by with a crenulated coastline, rainforests, volcanic-based hills reaching up to 1,300 feet, lowlands and nonstop beaches. Today, English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard are thriving yacht ports  and home to notables like Eric Clapton whose stone villa rests on a rocky outcrop nearby.       Caribbean Map

Outstanding Soft White Sand - Clear Turquoise Water - Fragrant Flowers

Dickenson's Bay is a beautiful beach. It is only about half a mile long, but the soft powdery sand and the beautiful ocean made you wish it would go on forever. There is no seaweed, rocks, pebbles, or sharp shells, so swimming and walking along the edge were comfortable and relaxing.

Great Entertainment & Things to Do

Evening Entertainment

Review: Just returned from Sandals, Antigua. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The island is spectacular. We are very glad that we picked Sandals. The beach was beautiful and the grounds were exquisite. We enjoyed the food and there was plenty to do (if you wanted to) or you could just spend the day relaxing on the beach or just walking around the grounds admiring the scenery.  A definite must see!

Bottom Line: It is a Winning Island Paradise with the Award Winning Ultra All Inclusive Sandals Grande Antigua Located on Dickinsons Bay and being voted WORLDS MOST ROMANTIC RESORT 10 YEARS in a ROW !

Located in the Southern Caribbean Out of the Hurricane Belt
with Gorgeous Gardens & Flowers.  One of the Best Backdrops for a Wedding and Honeymoon. A True Tropical Paradise.  It Has One of the Calmest Bays for Swimming & Snorkeling. It is a Perfect Honeymooners Island. It Takes Time to Get There in the Southern Caribbean but it is Worth It.

Best Souvenir
Visit Sarah Fuller's Pottery Stand on Redcliffe Quay to take home one of her handmade pottery light sconces. You'll see them all over the island in homes, hotels and downtown areas. Lights shine through cut-out designs of lizards, fish, seahorses, flowers and other shapes. Small scones are $37 U.S.
Best Cocktail
Be sure to order a Wadadli beer, a light beer made on the island or a rum punch made with Antigua Cavalier Rum, also made locally. Too soon for happy hour? For a cool thirst quencher, try a lime squash, an island specialty made with club soda, fresh lime juice and sugar.

Jabberwock Beach is the best place to learn the sport of kite surfing; wind conditions always seem to be ideal, and private lessons are available at the professional school located at Sunsail Colonna. Or just lie on the beautiful beach and watch the aerial acrobatics of those more adventurous than you.

Restaurant Tip: "A must if you visit Antigua"
This attractive outdoor restaurant is right on the beach next to Siboney. As its name suggests it is under a bunch of swaying coconut palms. I ate almost all of my meals there and was never disappointed. I will warn that the prices are high as is typical in the caribbean. The service was always friendly if at times a bit slow. But who cares, you shouldn.t be in a hurry on vacation anyway. Iloved talking to different people and also staring out over the crystal clear waters.

Type of Restaurant:
Seafood
Favorite Dish:
The Lobster for sure!!!

Directions/Location:
On the beach at Dickenson, right next to Siboney Beach Club
