Green Bay Isthmus Beach

Nothing more than a stretch of sand that connects what would otherwise be an island to the mainland, the Green Bay Isthmus Beach is back to back with Green Bay and Great Deep Bay.

Situated on the eastern edge of the island of Antigua, You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying in the immediate vicinity. Green Bay Isthmus Beach is somewhat unique because it's a generally active beach, but it's not constantly overrun with crowds. If you prefer to avoid Antigua's quiet, secluded beaches, but also want to be able to claim a spot without any trouble, this beach offers a nice middle ground.

How to Access The Beach

You will need to take a combination of paved and dirt roads to reach the beach. Additionally, once you arrive, you will not find any official parking spaces, so be on the lookout for an open place to park.

Amenities and Ambiance

Both sides of the beach features clean calm water. However, the area to the north tends to be a little more populated than the south. Then again, if you do not like the view on one side, you can simply turn around and face the other.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear enough for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.
