We went here twice and spent two hours solid in the sea before coming out. The sand is beautiful and the bay is the most amazing blue just like the Maldives. The little beach bar serves great food and cocktails. We had the beach to ourselves. You can hire sun beds at $5 for the day. The sea is lovely... More

Crystal clear, turquoise water. Great place to relax and soak up the sun. No fee to go to the beach - AWESOME! If you're visiting Antigua, please make Valley Church Beach a priority.

Did an excursion from the cruise ship here with a private taxi and some folks from our ship. Beach was clean, water was very warm, although not that clear. There were clean washrooms which you could change into your suit. The nest beach bar and restaurant served awesome pins coladas. Didn't have any food here.

The water is still the stunning turquoise colour it always was, but the restaurant/beach chair area that has been added beside the parking lot is terribly ugly. There are piles of old, battered sunbeds which adds nothing to the natural beauty of hills, nature and ocean. Also, a very unfriendly sign indicating that absolutely no dogs are allowed in that...

The beach itself was nice, didn't have a problem with the JetSki rental people as some others on here have stated. Did not care for people relentlessly trying to sell cheap jewelry, and massages. Have been to Antigua a few times now, would maybe try a different beach next time.

This is my second time back to this beach, was here 6 years ago. It is still beautiful. It is up the road from Jolly Beach which was good, but Valley has no crowds, no people actually..bar one couple we saw. The water was that gorgeous blue. If you walk further in once you come through main gates there is... More

This was our second time on Antigua but this time we were with two other couples who had never been there. We decided to do a taxi tour of the island. We had a great driver named Cliff. He took us to Nelson's Dockyard and then along Fig Tree dr which is mountainous and basically rainforest. We then ended up... More

Pretty beach and yes it is busy but big enough you can really spread out. Lots of shells. Water was not clear, but it wasn't clear for snorkeling anywhere in Antigua while we were there.

We had 13 people last Tuesday go to Valley Beach off of the Adventure of the Seas cruise ship. The beach and water are beautiful!!!! I recommend this beach highly. The 4 star rating comes from the Jet Ski rental guys on the beach. Do not trust them!!! They will tell you one thing then do another. We had rented... More
