There are 365 beaches on Antigua, one for everyday of the year. If you google beaches antigua you will see many pics of a selection beaches, all them fantastic. Jolly Beach does show on there & no mention of being private, but I really don't think it's worth too much travelling as the pictures will show. Nelsons Dockyard & Shirley Heights is a good tour for a few hours & then get the taxi man to stop off at a beach on the way back. That's one great day out!!.......Wilba.

Dickenson bay is in my opinion the best i have ever been to just get a local driver to take you and they always pick you up whenever you want.

Stayed there last year and as far as i know it's not just for guests of the jolly beach resort. Not really sure why you want to go there especially. Antigua is a lovely island, I think a popular beach with the cruise companies is Carslile Bay, awesome snorkelling to be found however ibecause of this it's often busy. Like Wilba says just jump into a taxi and ask for a beach, any of them are great. Antigua is a lovely island..enjoy.

Our cruise ship docked in Antigua on the 27 December 2008, and many passengers including myself went to Jolly Harbour Beach (and other passengers went to different beaches). The beach is not private, and does have a bar / restaurant called Castaways, we all had a wonderful day, the beach was gorgeous, not too crowded and Jolly Harbour itself is very picturesque. When we arrived at the beach we agreed a pick up time with our taxi driver and he was standing waiting for us at the drop off point at the agreed pick up time, the negotiated fare was $10 return per person. On our return to the ship, all the passengers I spoke to had enjoyed their day at whichever beach they went to. Enjoy Antigua it’s wonderful.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison  Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
