Harmony Hall Western Beach

This small beach is located just off the main road and offers visitors a quick place for a day at the beach. You will find it much quieter than most tourist beaches, and is definitely more of a beach for relaxing than a beach party.

Located in Nonsuch Bay, Harmony Hall Western Beach is on the East coast of Antigua. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Travelers looking for a spot that's a little out of the way, but still active, should give Harmony Hall Western Beach a try. It's not the type of beach that gets packed every day, but it's not totally secluded either.

How to Access The Beach

Harmony Hall Beach (and Harmony Hall in general) is only accessible by one road; The Freeport-Harmony Hall Road, a notoriously rough and bumpy dirt road. If you plan on drving here, it is important that you have either a car made for a little off-roading, or at least one with high clearance.

Amenities and Ambiance

If you decide to visit Harmony Hall Beach, you will find that the beach has plenty of shade, with palm trees growing throughout. The beach itself is located at the end of a deep cove, making the water calm enough to easily wade in the water to cool off.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear and good for snorkeling, so bring your equipment if you want to check out what lies beneath the surface.
