Dickenson Bay

Dickenson Bay - The Caribbean
© Paul Kowalow

Northwest Antigua’s Dickenson Bay combines the white sands of its beach with a mile-long coral reef offshore to create the perfect Caribbean escape. No wonder there are so many hotels and resorts flanking it, alongside concessions for renting out water sports gear, arranging tours on glass-bottomed boats, and hiring out sun loungers and umbrellas.

Being perhaps the most developed beach anywhere on the island means that it sees a constant flow of visitors, with better beaches nearby for those seeking out some seclusion (try Runaway Bay about a mile south). The impressive facilities and amenities include access at some spots on Dickenson Bay for those who use a wheelchair.
