Best Beaches of Antigua and Barbuda
By Viator, August 2013
Pigeon Point, Antigua – Located just 5 minutes from Antigua’s main township English Harbour , Pigeon Point is a favorite spot for both locals and tourists. As the locals claim – it’s the only place where you’ll see “yachties” and locals alike. Must be the clean sand, the calm waves and the fun snorkeling.
Half Moon Bay, Antigua – Catch the catamarans sailing in Half Moon Bay. This is a local’s favorite beach for water sports. Waves at this beach can be five to six feet on a good day, so chances are you’ll spot some body boarders, surfers, and windsurfers taking advantage of a good swell.
Barbados – Looking for a great beach in Barbados? Take your pick. The beaches in Barbados run almost uninterrupted in smooth pink dotted lines. The warm waters here are also protected by barrier reefs that make for safe swimming and fantastic snorkeling. Look to Barbados’s southwestern shore for pink beaches that run almost ten contiguous miles without interruption. The eastern shore has rougher waves, though this makes for better shelling experience. You’ve got your choice here, and, as you can see, it’s hard to go wrong with picking a great beach in Barbados.
