Beach Bar Trail
Antigua and Barbuda Tourism have compiled a list of the best beach bars on Antigua and Barbuda in a Beach Bar Trail.
They say that one of the best places for food and drink during the winter season is Falmouth Harbour, close to English Harbour and just round the bay from Dieppe Bay House, so right on your doorstep!

There is a great choice of affordable international and local restaurants as well as cocktail bars. Ranging from local shacks to fine dining: right on the beach to hillside hideaways; Italian to Japanese; pizza to sushi; and always a Catch of the Day.
Fully refurbished in 2016, Dieppe Bay House is a beautiful 6 bedroom sea front villa set in its own established tropical garden in a peaceful location in the south of Antigua. Sleeping up to 14 comfortably, the spacious 5 bedroom house with separate one bedroom cottage are well suited for families and large groups. An acre of garden gives the villa lots of outdoors space with plenty of room for privacy and shade, and includes a gorgeous pool with sundeck, two gazebos, sun terrace, rustic beach BBQ area and lawn leading down to the sea and natural beach. Only five minutes drive to local shops and restaurants, the house has stunning views towards Falmouth Harbour to the distant masts of the yacht clubs and out to sea.
