    One of the nicest beach in the Caribbean, walking alone on the pink hued sand for hours. The security at the private club at the southern tip will not bother you as long as you keep close to the water. It is reported to be quite rolly at times especially in Northerly swell, and there was a bit of a swell when we stopped even if the conditions were relatively benign and the swell was at the time from the North East.

    Protected anchorage. Very nice beach. Northerly swells make it rolly.. difficult to land the dinghy. All the land from Cocoa Point to beyond the old airstrip is private land, with construction plans for private luxury houses. Security will come and chase you off as soon as you leave the beach toward inland.

    A bit more crowded than the anchorage at Low Bay, but very reasonable compared to Antigua. Do not get wet in front of the hotel in the extreme south, a seaplane comes to drop the VIP customers of the hotel. No need to go for a drink at the bar, private hotel for guests only. Too much in the North, beware of coral potatoes, but it leaves you a good space anyway. The sand is an immaculate white rare! It looks like flour.

    Un peu plus fréquenté que le mouillage de Low Bay, mais très raisonnable par rapport à Antigua. Ne mouillez pas face à l’hôtel à l’extrême Sud, un hydravion vient y déposer les clients VIP de l’hôtel. Inutile d’aller prendre un verre au bar, hotel privé pour les clients uniquement. Trop au Nord, attention aux patates de corail, mais cela vous laisse un bon espace quand même. Le sable est d’un blanc immaculé rare! On dirait de la farine.
