Last time we were in Antigua, we went to Pineapple beach. It was beautiful ! Had everything we needed there. It was about a 15 minute cab ride to get there

Just there last Wednesday. Bought a day pass to the Grand Pineapple Beach Resort. For about $45 you can take advantage of their beautiful beach, facilities, and food and drink. It was a wonderful day. We had prearranged transportation (3 couples who met up on the Meet and Greet Board Here) through Antigua Premier Transportation. I think it was about $18 round trip per person. The driver also took us to Devils Bridge. It took about 25-30 min to get there.

we went to Turners beach in Antigua. Nice restaurant right on the beach, reasonable rates on beach chairs etc. Restaurant wasn't cheap but food was tasty (great conch fritters!)

We went to Darkwood beach last year - my favorite beach in the world - nice place to relax and have lunch.

I wanted to get information on Dickson Beach also as NCL has an excursion to Runaway beach that I heard smells at low tide. Did you ever get the information you requested.
