Darkwood Beach, Antigua

Unwind away from the crowds at Darkwood Beach, an Antiguan beach that offers great snorkeling and a secluded retreat. Turquoise clear waters and a small reef close to the shore provide an excellent spot for beginners to practice their snorkeling or swim in calm waters. A long stretch of white crystal sands is interrupted only by a beach bar, which rents snorkeling equipment, as well as serving refreshing snacks and offering restrooms. If you’ve got the kids with you, then the inflatable aquatic playground often set up in the bay will keep them entertained for hours, while you enjoy a cold drink and some peace and quiet.

  • Darkwood beach is very beautiful, the sand and water are very pleasant. There are umbrellas and chairs to rent (or not) and you can order drinks and food from the local restaurant that will take your orders on the beach.
  • Very nice beach But the fee for the water park is not cheap
