Deep Bay Beach
Lining the western side of a thin spit of land leading towards the ruins of historic Fort Barrington and its surrounding national park, Deep Bay Beach sits on Antigua’s west coast. Around 20 minutes by road from St John’s cruise ship terminal, it’s also common to arrive by catamaran and anchoring off this relatively narrow strip of curving white sand backed by native forest.
Head into the turquoise blue shallows and you’ll reach the one hundred year old Andes shipwreck after a short swim. It is now a popular snorkelling and scuba site, especially since the waters at Deep Bay are close to millpond flat.
If you’re seeking out a reason not to visit, there are no toilet facilities, and only a handful of shacks offering refreshments on busier days.
