Runaway Beach Day in Antigua
Soak up the breathtaking beauty of Antigua on a half-day beach trip to Runaway Beach. Enjoy access to a variety of fun activities in the calm, shallow waters of this part of the Caribbean. Snorkel, swim, or kayak around the bay, or simply relax in your own comfy lounge chair on the stunning beach. Rent a boat to go exploring or stay put on the beach and rejuvenate. The choice is yours!
Meet your air-conditioned taxi in the morning at St John’s Pier for the easy 10-minute drive to Runaway Beach. Arrive at a laid-back resort with beachside facilities that you can use during your visit, including your own lounge chair that you can plant along a designated strip of the stunning beach. After a brief tour of the facilities, relax on your lounge chair and sip a complimentary welcome cocktail of Caribbean fruit or rum punch.
From your perch, take in the white-sand beach that stretches for a half mile, bordered by coconut palms, sea grape trees and the protected bay. Enjoy 3.5 hours at your leisure to explore the beach and the calm shallow waters.
If you feel like being active, rent small catamarans, kayaks and snorkel gear from the resort. Or simply swim or snorkel in the gentle Caribbean waters with your own equipment. Be sure to bring your towel, swimsuit, sun protection, and a camera to document your morning in paradise! If the sun becomes too strong, large umbrellas are available to rent at your own expense.
If you enjoy walking on the beach, you'll discover peaceful spots flanked by limestone cliffs. You might spy pelicans diving for food or sailboats gliding across the ocean.
Beachside restrooms and freshwater showers are accessible at any time during your visit. If you get hungry, head into the beach bar or restaurant to buy snacks and refreshments. After about 3.5 hours at the beach, meet your taxi for return transport to your starting point.
