Enjoy white sands, blue-green waters and thrilling watersports at this Caribbean beach, which is conveniently located close to the town of St. John’s.

Dickenson Bay Beach is one of Antigua’s best-loved stretches of sand. Visit it yourself and see why. With bright white sand, clear waters, swaying palm trees and year-round sunshine, it is a Caribbean dream brought to life. Drive just a few minutes south from the beach and tour Antigua and Barbuda’s capital, St. John’s, with all the conveniences it offers.

The accessible position and great reputation of Dickenson’s Beach means it is rarely isolated. However, its great popularity also means that it has excellent facilities. Find lots of activities to keep family members of all ages entertained here. Rent a beach umbrella and relax in the shade. Have lunch at one of the nearby restaurants or food stands and set aside time to look for souvenirs in the local stores.

Try some of the exciting sports that make this beach so much fun. Experience the thrill of windsurfing or join a snorkeling tour that will head out into the long reef nearby. This is the place to spot a wide array of colorful marine life. Rent or bring your own snorkeling gear to see the underwater sights at your own swimming pace.

Go on a scenic boat trip to take a break from the beach. The uninhabited islands just off the coast offer a tranquil change of scenery. Rent a Jet Ski for a more adventurous way to enjoy the waves.

As the sun sets, stay near the water to enjoy outdoor cocktails and an incredible view. Take advantage of the beach’s urban location by heading inland and exploring other local nightlife options, including casinos.

Remember to bring a camera when you come to Dickenson Bay Beach, as the gorgeous vistas here are perfect material for vacation photos. Stay in one of the glamorous resorts or lovely holiday cottages located in and around Dickenson Bay itself or find accommodations farther inland. Antigua’s small size means this beautiful spot will be within easy reach from most of the island’s cities. V.C Bird International Airport is about a 20-minute drive from the beach.
