Antigua has some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and many of them are only a short journey from Villa Azura.
The nearest is Long Bay,which is less than 5 minutes by car or 10 minutes walk away. This beach is good for snorkelling, ideal for children and has beautiful white sand. There is a bar/dining area at one end (near the blue parasols in the picture below) as well as a couple of beach restaurants.
Other excellent beaches are Half Moon Bay , Galley Bay, Pigeon, Darkwood and Ffryes to name but a few.
