Darkwood Beach on a Sunday

Recommended Posts

I am wondering whether this beach will be very crowded on a Sunday. There is one ship in port with 4100 passengers.

Thanks

 

Don't forget it is a beach promoted on CC and other sites, which can be reached by public bus service, being a destination of T'erds.

Then add unto the mix Antiguan people who will be (quite rightly) visiting "their" beaches before the ship's disembarked.

 

 

If you wish a beach away from any it all, then there are three places of note.

What is the public bus schedule like on a Sunday to Darkwood?  Are they on a limited schedule because it is Sunday?

Also we will be there in December, would it be crowded with locals?

We are cruising with you. Now thinking of Sibony/Coconut Grove on Dickinson Bay

We have gone to Darkwood many times and its never too crowded.  The down side is that its a pretty long bus ride (we take the public bus).  Most cruisers prefer to go to other more popular beaches like Dickinson (we also like this beach).  The main reason we have gone to Darkwood is that there is an area with some snorkeling on the left side of the beach.  But the last few times we snorkeled the water was just too cloudy (the wave action kicks up sand).  Anitigua did not suffer much damage from last years Hurricane.  Locals will tell you the island was truly blessed as nearby Barbuda got hit pretty hard.

Interested in Darkwood but Dickinson sounds good too. Is Darkwood less busy and commercial? Looking for a quieter beach and don't require amenities. I enjoy calmer water and no huge drops into the water.
