Discover Hawksbill Bay
Made up of four palm tree lined beaches, Hawksbill Bay is a peaceful resort on the northwest coast of Antigua, only half an hour from the V.C. Bird International airport. For an island famous for its exquisite scenery, Hawksbill Bay stands out as a particularly stunning area of natural beauty. With warm, clear waters, plenty to see and do and a friendly atmosphere, this resort will delight families and couples alike.
Things to see and do in Hawksbill Bay
There are four secluded beaches to discover on your holiday in Hawksbill Bay, each with white sand and sparkling turquoise waters. Bear in mind that the fourth beach is the only ‘clothing optional’ area on the island, though with such fine views and soft sand to relax on, you probably won’t venture past the first beach. If you fancy a change, you could head to the nearby beaches of Halcyon Cove and Runaway Beach. Relax and swim in the day and in the evening, enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
The inviting water beckons those looking for water sports and sailing, and with a coral reef and shipwrecks hiding beneath the waves, it is the perfect place for snorkelling and diving. Take a late night walk on the beach to search for nesting turtles, take a Caribbean dancing lesson, or just relax in the shade of a palm tree and watch the world go by.
You could hire a car and explore the island, or head to the capital of St John’s for a spot of shopping and to admire the architecture. At English Harbour, discover the rich history of the island with a visit to Nelson’s Dockyard, the only working Georgian Dockyard in the world. Or you could take a trip to the neighbouring island of Barbuda, to see the wildlife in the bird sanctuary and explore the many shipwrecks.
The hotel at Hawksbill Bay offers excellent food, and there are plenty of restaurants around Antigua where you can enjoy international or Caribbean cuisine. Whether you’re looking for fine dining or an authentic beachfront café, there is something to suit every budget. English Harbour in particular has a strip of lively restaurants and bars if you fancied a change from relaxing at Hawksbill Bay.
With its laid back vibe, Hawksbill Bay holidays are not for those looking for a wild party scene. You might want to head to the lively beachfront bars of Dickenson Bay to experience a real Caribbean party atmosphere.
