Fort James Beach

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Fort James is a beach being nearest one to the north of St. John's - the capital of Antigua. Surprise, but this is one of the best beaches on the island! There are trees, palms and smooth white sand. Locals often come here by car making it to be very positive and authentic spot. Since this is the west coast of the island, there is no seaweed, nor strong waves. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #11 of the "Best beaches in Antigua"

Hotels [edit]

There are several accommodation options within a walking distance from the beach. Rooms' fares start from US$100 per night. It is also near the center of capital town. So the location of apartments is almost perfect for those who don't want to rent a car.

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.
