Beautiful, clean beach

Wonderful, local beach next to English Harbour. Beautiful sand, clean and quiet, overlooking boats at anchor in the bay.

Pigeon Beach English Harbour is one of the most beautiful beaches in Antigua, clear sea, soft sand, play area for kids & facilities. Topped off with the best restaurant in Antigua at one end called Catherine's and a humble relaxed beach bar at the other end called Bumpkin's. just turn up and enjoy this beautiful location and spend the day...

my b/f and I came here for a little bit while touring the island. this beach had a great view! we didn't get to go in the water here though. there is a parking lot . and across the street there is a gated off bathroom facility with a guard. people can get shade with the short trees.

Beautifully newly built / converted restaurant with excellent options of dining inside or out. Great atmosphere, low key music, good food, and lovely views across towards Falmouth with expensive boats and boaties.

Most of the beaches down by English Harbour aren't the picture postcard Caribbean beaches, they're mostly on the west coast. Catherine's Cafe la Plage is lovely though.

This beach is very convenient if you're staying in Falmouth/English harbour. It has 2 beach bars at either end, and public toilets which is rare for Antigua.

Beach was about a ten minute walk from where we were staying, but well worth it. Beautiful sand and sea was very blue and clear. No hawkers and spent most days here.
