Service is slow but the food is good. The drinks are strong and people are friendly. Walk in off the beach. No dress code.

We had a really fun visit here - sun just going down, good margaritas, kids happy, good burgers, music, friendly staff. Loved eating with our feet in the sand, looking out to beautiful views. Would definitely return.

We've been coming to Jolly Harbour for several years and at first we're enchanted by Castaways charm. Over the last few years we've watched that drain away as more and more detritus has been erected around the place. In our view it's ruined. We used...More

The beach is beautiful here and the Indian food is terrific! Great place to take a walk on the beach, have a few cocktails, watch the sunset and hang out. We always visit Castaways when we are in Antigua.

This spot has good food, but it’s become heavily populated with tourists by the bus load. We arrived early for lunch before noon and they had trouble seating us (although only 2 tables were occupied) because we were told large groups were coming that would...More

The beach is nice, popular with the local community, but also popular with the crowds flowing from the cruise ships, who leave a mess behind them. The day my husband and I went, the beach was double booked, so imagine over 600 people like sardines....More

We booked a beach day with lunch here through our cruise ship. Big Mistake. The beach was packed with multiple long rows of loungers basically touching each other. They made us pay an extra $10 for an umbrella. The beach and water was super crowded...More

It really just depends on who you rent from. We rented from Castaway. You go to the bar and pay there. Their chairs and umbrellas were much nicer. We paid for the umbrella and the chairs were free. Not sure if that was how... More
