a long white beach with plenty of shady areas. Several good bars with facilities, and very safe. One of the best beaches on Antigua.

A lovely quiet beach with a small bar/restaurant, stopped here at the end of an island bike tour. Drinks were a bit overpriced but you are on the beach so its expected, food was lovely

Great beach 30mins walk from town. Would definitely recommend to anyone. We lived along Fort road for months and never had any problems in Antigua. Exercise common sense as you would living in any country and you will have a great time.
