Beach Bar Pic of the Week – Darkwood Beach Bar, Antigua

Tagged: , , ,

I’ve spent two weeklong vacations in Antigua, exploring its beach bars spread out over 365 different beaches. For some reason, I never made it to Darkwood Beach and its eponymously named Darkwood Beach Bar. Having stayed just north of it on Jolly Beach and just south of it on Turner’s Beach, I can’t even offer up a good excuse for not taking a minute or two to stop by.

Presumably the spot that this...

Plus, as I’ve found out through our businesses for sale page, wanting to own a beach bar and actually making the leap are two entirely different things.

Jolly Beach Bars – A Video Intro to Antigua’s Sandra’s and Castaways Beach Bars

Tagged: , , , , ,

I love a good play on words (“jolly beach bars” – you’ll get it soon) and seeing as how it’s the season for being jolly , I couldn’t resist the cleverness. Of all the beaches I’ve had the pleasure of setting foot on, Jolly Beach, located in the southwest corner of Antigua, sits squarely at the top with a select other few. A slightly crescent shaped beach stretching out just under a mile, Jolly...
