5 facts about Antiguas Dickenson Bay

The northwest of Antigua is home to Dickenson Bay, a spectacular stretch of coastline with a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. Here are just a few facts about this wonderful part of Antigua and why we think you’ll enjoy your time here during your sailing getaway.

ENJOY SHIMMERING TURQUOISE WATERS AND WHITE SANDY BEACHES

The waters around Dickenson Bay are warm and calm, and the white super-soft sandy beach is also impeccable. Although not the most secluded beach in the region, you won’t struggle to find a patch of sand or a comfortable beach lounger on which to sit and soak in those spectacular views out over the ocean.

THERE ARE SPECTACULAR SNORKELING OPPORTUNITIES

A mile-long coral reef sits just off the coast of Dickenson Bay, but even shallower waters contain a variety of stunning marine life to swim with. If you’re super lucky, you may even catch a few glimpses of some mischievous dolphins playing in the slightly deeper waters too!

HEAD OUT ON THE WATER ON YOUR SAILING GETAWAY

With everything from wakeboarding and water skiing, to parasailing and banana boat adventures, there really is something for everyone to enjoy in Dickenson Bay. If adrenaline-inducing activities aren’t quite what you’re looking for, a serene excursion on a glass-bottomed boat is a wonderful way to spend a few hours.

IT’S HOME TO STUNNING SUNRISES AND SUNSETS

If soaking in some breathtakingly beautiful sunrises and sunsets are high on your list of priorities, you won’t be disappointed with the skyscapes of Dickenson Bay. Watch splashes of rich orange, yellow and red hues cascade across the sky before the stars begin to emerge, sending gently twinkling starlight across the ocean below.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF RESTAURANTS, EATERIES, AND LOCAL VENDORS TO EXPLORE

If you’re feeling a bit peckish, you won’t have far to go in search of a tempting treat to see you through until dinner time. You’ll also be able to pick up a souvenir to remember your time in this beautiful and unforgettable part of Antigua.
