On the far-eastern coast, you'll find coral reefs in water so shallow that you can actually walk out to them. Along the beach are the Long Bay Hotel and the rambling Allegro Resort Pineapple Beach.

The cab stand manager at the cruise terminal seems to only want to get his vans filled. We didn't want to be with a crowd at a big-name black and with another couple that also wanted to snorkel, convinced him to get us a car to Long Bay Beach. There were only two ships in and that may have contributed... More

Beautiful beach, very secluded with gentle slop into the sea. Good sand. There are a few vendors selling bits and pieces. Some shade by trees.

While staying at the Verandah Resort (our second visit) we went for a wonderful morning walk along Long Bay. It is a beautiful sight, with nice soft white sand. There are a couple of restaurants, and some nice little shops along here. At the other end is Pineapple Resort. The beach is nicely protected and mostly calm.

We were staying at the Verrandah Resort which is a 5 min walk away from here so we broke out of the resort a few times to take in the "local" beach. Firstly it isn't that long, and secondly over half of the beach sits in front of the Pineapple Resort - thats to say it is almost part of... More

We stayed at the GPA for one week and went snorkelling here many times. The beach is incredible. We had calm waters and felt quite safe to swim. I snorkelled on the right side of the beach and was able to find many types of tropical fish.

I have been to Antigua 3 times now.. The 1st 2 times my friend who is from there only took me to this beach. This time I got to explorer the island and this is the only beach you need to see... Bring snacks to feed the fish at the shallow end. That was a beautiful experience cause they came... More

Our entire group loved this gorgeous beach and visited several times during our week at The Veranda Resort. It was shallow enough for the younger children, offered moderately good snorkeling, and there was an adequate amount of shade available.

Lovely bay, but not a soul to be seen. No where for drink or lounger.. so if that's what you like then you won't be disappointed Soft white sand, and views of the old Fort.
