Antigua has 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, and it’s not hard to find one, two or even ten that are your favorites.

From the famous pink sands to the waters that are a stunning royal blue color to beaches that are accessible only by boat, discover our choices for the best 6 beaches on this stunning island.
Directly north of St. John’s lies one of the best beaches on the island, Dickenson Bay. Its wide strip of white powder-soft sand is especially appealing to families with small children.

There are a range of hotels, restaurants and beach bars that line the beach making it easy to grab a bite to eat or some shade. The range of water sport rentals here is seemingly endless from parasailing to banana boating to jet boating. The views from this beach happen to be unbeatable, from the rolling lush green hills to the stunning sunsets at night.

Arguably the best place to snorkel in all of Antigua, Green Island is located just off the island’s east coast and is accessible only by boat. It also happens to be one of the quietest beaches in Antigua, alas a little out of the way. This humpbacked island offers several beaches, strips of soft velvety sand with a backdrop of colorful foliage. For those visitors traveling with children it is important to know that there aren’t any public washrooms. Getting here requires a charter shuffle, boat eco-tour or by booking a lunch at Harmony Hall in which case they will shuttle you over for the afternoon. If your idea of a day on the beach includes plenty of relaxation, soft sand to sink your toes into, clear calm waters and deserted beaches, make sure to head on over to Green Island.
