Hi Folks,
Cruise ship organised beach tour VERSES local company or under own steam.

We only have a few hours in port, leaving mid afternoon. The ship offers organised beach tour for just under £30pp which includes transfer, sunbed and welcome drink.

Looking for a nice beach not to far from cruise port which provides sunbeds and umbrella, must also have restaurant/café and restroom facilities. Can anyone recommend local tour company offering the above with transportation, or if anyone has done it under their own steam how easy was it and what were the costs of taxi, sunbeds etc.

Any help/comments would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards Viv
missouri, us

Taxis are very east to get there. Just hop in one and tell them to take you to St. James beach. Its about 10 minutes away. Clean restrooms, beach chairs and umbrella rentals. has restaurant and beach is free. There are 365 beaches in Antigua so you shouldn't have a problem finding one that suits you. Our taxi driver asked us when we wanted to go back, and he was waiting for us when we were ready to go.
