Fort Barrington at Deep Bay

This is a nice beach and area to discover in Antigua. Not obvious to find so let us guide you to deep bay.

Easy to view from the sea otheriwse a car rental is needed and a visit to the general Five Islands Village area of Antigua. 

How to get there

Follow signs for the Grand Royal Antiguan Resort and then you arrive at this area in the video below..

Before you read anything this aerial video shows you a magnificent view of the entire area and the shipwreck of the Andes.

Head for the Grand Royal Antiguan- at the guard house take the middle road.

There is no info on the fort which is strange as it is a national park. It's probably not for everyone but as part of a general visit to the area it is worth it. Built in 1779 by Admiral Barrington.

Deep Bay

Deep bay a typically lovely beach for Antigua. Accesible by resorts in the five islands area (east Antigua). One notable thing of interest that brings Yacht and Catamaran charters is the wreck here which is easily snorkled. Thanks fishboy for uploading and making this video.
