Little Pearns Bay Beach

Located in one of the most natural places on Antigua, Little Pearns Bay is a destination of choice for eco-tourist and nature lovers visiting the island. Shrouded by a forest, and only one road on the peninsula it is located on, the remote beach is great for those looking to get as far from civilization as they can.

Situated on the island of Antigua, You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. This beach is not just a pleasant attraction, it is one of the more unique and quiet beaches in Antigua. While Little Pearns Bay Beach might be a little bit out of the way, it's a pleasure to find an undisturbed plot of sand like this one.

How to Access The Beach

As stated, there is only one road on the peninsula, and at times it may seem more like a glorified hiking trail than a roadway. Nonetheless, you will be able to drive, bike, or hike to the beach. If you follow the sole road on the northern part, the second "intersection" will take you on a path to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

There is nothing but sand, water, and trees here. If you are up for a little exploring and a hike, you can head northeast a little bit and see some of the cliffs that make up part of the Antigua coast.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
