We pulled in and parked under a tree soon after passing through the entrance gate. In this section, the beach was narrow with a fair amount of vegetation floating in it. Perhaps the conditions are better further down the beach closer to the restaurant.

We had a bus ride 8.00 per person from dock each way.. Beach was clean, good clear water, restrooms, bar, items for sale, beer was cold :) I believe about a 20 minute bus ride.. Some vendors on beach, sea doo rentals etc.. Not overly pressured, it's a good spot!

Went to this beach for the day. Beach is clean and has locals selling fresh coconut water/jelly for $5. Rental was reasonable $10 for umbrella $5 for chairs. The view is amazing but getting into the water was pretty rough due to part of the beach being lined with shells. What I recommend is going half way down on the... More

Went to this beach on a non-cruise day. Rented two chairs and an umbrella for $20 total. It's really worth it because the sun gets very hot and it's nice to have some shade. If you want to save some money get a chair for $5 and sit under one of the nearby trees. The Nest Restaurant was really good... More

One of the nicer beaches that is easily accessible if the gate is unlocked. On the Caribbean, sandy, some shade. Good for wading or swimming.

We arrived for the day via P and O Britannia, and looked up the best beach on TA before we left home.. Lots of folks said Valley Church was good, and they were not wrong... Excellent azure calm waters.. soft silky sand... there is a shelf that goes steeply into the water, but its not too bad.. 2 sunbeds, brolly... More

Visited many beaches on Antigua and this beach was by far the nicest. Umbrella rental, open air restaurant, lovely soft white sand, good for snorkelling, floating water park, ample free parking - Valley Church Beach has it all.
