Turners Beach, Antigua | Wish you were here (Nov/Dec 2022)

Postcards from the Caribbean’s most extraordinary places

Turners Beach — near Johnson’s Point on Antigua’s southwest coast — is a stunner…and delightfully accessible. Though it’s popular on Sundays, it’s much quieter during the week. You’d be forgiven for wanting to just laze — enjoying the cooling breezes; soft, sparkling white sand; and calm, clear ocean waters that are mesmerising shades of blue. It makes for wonderful snorkelling. Back on land, there are the ruins of a small fort to investigate, plus lots of good food, drink, and accommodation options nearby.
