Ballast Bay beach

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Ballast Bay is a beach being closest to the west of St. John port, Antigua island. It is not the most beautiful beach on the island, but it's quite Ok anyway. There are not many trees. But you can always find a free shaded spot, since there are usually just a few people. Blue Skies Entertainment Park (marked on the map) does not operating most of time. So you should not expect any special "entertainments". Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #18 of the "Best beaches in Antigua"

Hotels [edit]

Yepton Estate Cottages is the nearest hotel with rooms' rates starting from US$300 per night. In the port, there are also several guesthouses with rooms' rates starting from US$90 per night.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Antigua international airport (ANU). Next hire a taxi.

When to go [edit]

You can relax in Antigua any time of year. Summer is considered to be off-season due to the heat and hurricane season. But it's still a great time anyway.
