Trafalgar Beach

Located at the entrance of Dickenson Bay and Deepwater Harbor, Trafalgar Beach looks over the water, boat traffic, and (if you head up the cliffs for a view) the city of St. John.

Located on the northern outskirts of Five Islands, Trafalgar Beach is on the North East edge of Antigua. You should consider stopping by whether or not you are staying nearby. Seclusion and privacy are the features which most exemplify Antigua's beaches, but Trafalgar Beach is a little different. You'll still find it has a calm, serene mood, but you can visit without having to be too far removed from the city's activity.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located at the end of RobRace Drive, which splinters off of Gray's Farm Main Road. You should not have much trouble finding parking.

Amenities and Ambiance

Tucked away is a less visited part of Antigua, Trafalgar Beach is generally a less crowded beach. However, it is still decently close to amenities and civilization. However, it is still far enough away that you should bring you own snacks and drinks.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Since Trafalgar Beach will be located within a relatively urbanized region, many try to show up early.
