Winthorpes Bay Beach

Not much more than a stretch of sand on the coast of Antigua, Winthorpes Bay Beach is perfect for those looking for easy access and do not care too much of amenities.

Positioned on the southeastern part of Dutchman Bay, 2.0 miles east-northeast of Cassada Gardens, Winthorpes Bay Beach is on the North East coast of Antigua. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying in the vicinity. It's often said that Winthorpes Bay Beach is the ideal location for getting away from vacation stresses, like overly crowded restaurants and attractions. Most other beaches you'll come across in Antigua offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but tend to be more crowded since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located just north of the airport on Burma Road.

Amenities and Ambiance

Located right off the main road, you will be able to see and hear the cars drive by. However, other than that the beach is clean, and the water beautiful. Additionally, if you keep your eyes open and on the water, you can watch the boat traffic of the nearby marina.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
