Great Food On At Beach
The beach restaurant & bar is situated between the Antigua Village resort and the Sandels resort. The restaurant has about 8 tables actually on the beach and about 25 more inside. Some of the inside tables are on a covered terrace. The beach is open 7 days a week for breakfast lunch and dinner.
The menu has a mixture of International, Italian, caribbean and Asian dishes.
One word of warning if you intend to sit outside after dark bring some insect repellent as there are loads of sand flys. Every thing I ordered there was excellent.

St Johns Beach
3rd Visit to St. Johns, Antigua
"Our Favourite place to visit"
We came back to Antigua for our 10th Wedding anniversary in July 2004. The hotel Yepton Beach Resort where we were married has been rebuilt and renamed the Coconut Beach Club. When we went back to visit the hotel it was in ruins and we were quite sad but the new rebuilt hotel looks very nice indeed. This last visit was our 3rd visit to Antigua and it holds a special place in our hearts due to us getting maried there.
Our favourite place to go in St. John's is Hemmingway's Caribbean Cafe. The food is great and not expensive and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is very interesting to sit on the veranda and watch the world go by.
A Day in Antigua
"St. Johns, Antigua"
Our cruise ship pulled into St.John's harbor on December 12th, 2002. It claims 365 beautiful beaches.
"Sunset over Antigua"
A beautiful sunset as we bid adieux to the lovely Antigua
Ports of Call
Our first port of Call was St.Maarten, after a morning of shopping it was time for a lunch time drink at The Greenhouse and then we hit the beach for an afternoon of sunbathing and swimming in the gorgeous blue waters of the Caribbean
"Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands"
From road Town we travelled across the island to the picturesque Cane Garden Bay, stopping off at a high point of the island to take in the surrounding views of the other virgin islands.
Check out The Barefootman, we bought his Best volume 3 CD, which has such classics as "Big Bamboo", "Who put the pepper in the vaseline" and a new cut called "Viagra" dedicated to all those boys who are "Over de hill.."
"St Johns, Antigua"
Our 3rd port of call was Antigua, we spent the morning exploring the lively streets of St.John's. We visited St. John's Cathedral,built in 1845, the church is now in its third incarnation, as earthquakes in 1683 and in 1745 destroyed the previous structures. We then wandered through the colourful streets to the local market.
In the afternoon we threw caution to the wind and boarded the " Jolly Roger " sailing boat, Beware ! the rum punch
Dominica was a complete contrast to the other Caribbean Islands that we visited, with an extensive and unspoiled rainforest, 365 rivers, one of the world's largest Boiling Lakes and a host of waterfalls.
"St. Lucia, Castries"
I think St.Lucia was our favourite Island of the cruise, the people we met were friendly and helpful and the scenery beautiful, we both wished that we'd had more time to see the Island, with an early sailing on the Emerald we decided to walk around the town center and local Market, we then hopped into a cab and headed for Rodney Beach.
NO...this is not the SS Emerald.
The Emeralds berthed in British Virgin Islands.
