Long Bay, Antigua
Soak in some sun and take a refreshing dip in the waters of the Caribbean at Long Bay. The beach, which features pristine white sand and clean, calm water, serves as the perfect for working on your tan, as well as snorkeling and discovering the local marine life. Local vendors sell souvenirs from wooden stalls, hire out jet skis and snorkeling equipment, and provide banana boats and tube rides for visitors to the beach. Snorkeling, fishing, and sightseeing trips also leave from the area. Make sure to bring your own umbrella or hire one from a local vendor, as natural shade at the beach is minimal.

Hubby and I visited Antigua for a week in March and enjoyed an afternoon at Long Bay. Easy beach access and convenient parking. Not too many other people on the beach. We took a lovely stroll on the b... more »
This is a beautiful beach with soft sand and light breezes. It is not a long beach by any stretch. You will have covered the whole thing in a matter of 5-10 minutes walking max. more »
Not much to compare it to on the island, but for being “one of the best” snorkeling beaches I was pretty disappointed. The reef is dying and the quantity and variety of fish is weak. Also the reef is in very shallow water and causes a natural break in the waves which can lead to some very treacherous swimming. As far as affordability, it was an easy $32 cab ride each way from downtown St John for a party of 4. Rented a pair of beach chairs $5 each which is a decent price, and the bar on the beach had beers for $3, also relatively affordable.
Oh love beautiful my favorite
