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.

Positioned on the eastern edge of the island of Antigua, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying in the vicinity. The surrounding region is not stuffed with visitors, but that doesn't mean you won't find things to do here.

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.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. You'll find the waters off-shore to be fit for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some equipment if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.
