According to Antigua's tourism bureau, there are 365 beaches on the beautiful Caribbean island. So, a traveller could go to Antigua for a year and go to the beach every day but never go back to the same beach twice!
Turner Beach is a prime destination for visiting cruise ship passengers who can buy local jewellery right on the sugary sand, get their hair braided at the same time, soak up the sunshine, sip a cold Wadadli beer, and enjoy a meal at a beachside restaurant. Elsewhere, Dickenson Bay is a fabulous destination for beach seekers and the closest beach to St. John's, the capital and largest city. Jolly Beach offers amazing mountain views, incredible sunsets, a casino, lots of local shopping outlets nearby and many great restaurants. Hawksbill Beach is a favourite of folks who don't like tanlines. Carlisle Bay in the south has a terrific beach with sand the colour of brown sugar and features amazing snorkeling opportunities along the reef about a thousand feet off the beach.

Hi Curt. Have you been to Antigua? It's on my list, but I'm looking for more first-hand reviews of some of the resorts, especially those featured on LL. Cocobay has had some mixed reviews, and Hermitage Bay looks like it is skyrocketing in price!
