Hello.  Lots of discussion about some fantastic beach choices.  I didn't see the cost of cab fare to these beaches. 

 

Any cab fare info from the cruise port to:

 

Turners Beach

Darkwood Beach

Thanks for posting.

At the cruise terminal in Antigua, there were just so many vendors selling "Around the Island" tours and cabs to beaches that it became a bit overwhelming for first time visitors.  The price of cabs can vary from vendor to vendor and where/location you ask.  It seemed to get cheaper as you get farther away from the main street.  For beaches, we found drivers willing to take you from between $5 - $8 per person/each way...for example to the nearby Dickenson's Beach.  "Around the Island" tours varied from $20 - $35 per person.  For those that disembark early and start looking for tours...you may have to wait for the driver to fill up the entire van...thus a bit of wait.  Best if you already have a large group (you can haggle the price down a bit) or if there's only two of you, you may be able to find a van looking for just two more passengers.  Happy sailing!

You are correct, bonsai3s.

 

Supply/demand and ability to negotiate does make a difference.

 

We were quoted 3 USD pp one way to Dickenson Bay, 5 USD pp one way to Jolly Beach, 6 USD pp oneway for any of the southwestern beaches. We were also quoted 80 usd total package price for family of 4 to go to Devil's Bridge and about 2 hours on Long Bay beach (total about 4 hours)


We ended up with USD 25 pp (large group) private tour of devil's bridge, naval dockyard, drive through rainforrest and Turner's beach. (about 4-5 hours total)
