A fascinating place on the east coast. We drove down here after visiting the Devils Bridge. Great breeze! Very different to the Caribbean side of the island. Rugged. We stopped for over an hour and didn't want to leave. The Beach Bum cafe was a...More

Stopped here to admire the view and have lunch at the beach bar. Great shrimp wraps, very tasty! Took a while, but worth the wait. Bay looks nice too. Bit too much seaweed for my taste, but quiet and wild, just how I like it!

This place is a little jewel. Situated right on one of the prettiest beaches on Antigua, Tippy and Avery serve excellent local cuisine with dollops of charm. Menu scribbled on bar counter: fresh fish, hot dog, grilled lobster. Ask keys for stand-alone loo. What is...More

There is Smiling Harrys along the road, but we went to the Beach Bum Shack overlooking the bay a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely excellent. Can recommend the grilled chicken strips.
