What You Can Expect

Best Dickenson Bay Beach Day at Beachfront Resort in Antigua

Lounge on the beach at Dickenson Bay in Antigua!

Meet your air-conditioned taxi in the morning at St John’s Pier for the easy 10-minute drive to Dickenson Bay. Arrive at a laid-back resort with beachside facilities that you can use during your visit, including your own lounge chair that you can plant along a designated strip of the stunning beach. After a brief tour of the facilities, relax on your lounge chair and sip a complimentary welcome cocktail of Caribbean fruit or rum punch.

From your perch, take in the white-sand beach that stretches for a half mile, bordered by coconut palms, sea grape trees and the protected bay. Enjoy 3.5 hours at your leisure to explore the beach and the calm shallow waters.

If you feel like being active, rent small catamarans, kayaks and snorkel gear from the resort. Or simply swim or snorkel in the gentle Caribbean waters with your own equipment. Be sure to bring your towel, swimsuit, sun protection, and a camera to document your morning in paradise! If the sun becomes too strong, large umbrellas are available to rent at your own expense.

If you enjoy walking on the beach, you'll discover peaceful spots flanked by limestone cliffs. You might spy pelicans diving for food or sailboats gliding across the ocean.

Beachside restrooms and freshwater showers are accessible at any time during your visit. If you get hungry, head into the beach bar or restaurant to buy snacks and refreshments. After about 3.5 hours at the beach, meet your taxi for return transport to your starting point.

We enjoyed our half-day trip to Dickenson Bay in Antigua. The beach was pristine! The resort has changing rooms and a café on site. Transportation was provided from the cruise ship pier. Good value for the price.

Beautiful beach, older facility but did the trick. Vendors frequent but not aggressive. Tour staff very nice.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this December 2014

We were taken to a different beach. One of the locals said it was Fort James, and another said it was Miller's Beach, so we don't know which, but it was definitely not Dickenson Bay. When we were dropped off at the location by the taxi driver, the beach guide asked the driver why we were brought there. The guide had to cover up for the driver saying Dickenson Bay was closed due to storm damage. Really? A major tourist site and it was closed? We were never notified of any changes to our itinerary. I think the driver just wanted to save on gas money.
