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.

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.

We visited here for the beach & the hotel (Grand Pineapple) was closed for refurbishment. The beach has beautiful white sands, the waters have various shades of blue & were nice & clear. As the hotel was being refurbished, we heard banging but that didn't affect our day trip. There were sunbeds, a shack for food & drinks & the... More

Came to Antigua for a wedding. The ceremony was held at the Veranda Hotel. The wedding photos was taken at Long Bay....it was a afternoon wedding and the photos was taken at sun set. It couldn't be more picturesque.......something out of a movie.

I visited this Beach several times while I stayed at the Verandah Resort, which is about 200 yards out the gate of the Verandah Resort. It's nice and peaceful. I waited there the morning of my Catamaran Party Boat Tour, the day before my last day on the Island.
