Cockle Bay

Where is Cockle Bay?


This unique little cove sits at the end of cockle bay street in the village of Old Road in the southwest of Antigua. It is a pretty secluded beach and about a 5-minute walk from the calm beautiful Morris Bay. 


The very secluded Cockle Bay is accessible to the public and there is substantial space to park. It is about 3 minutes from the Old Road main road. If you need help getting here contact us for car and chauffeur services as well as to book a tour.


In this quiet countryside, Cockle Bay hides within lush green bushes and holds a very tropical tranquil vibe. With reefs covering the majority of the bay, it is a perfect destination for shallow snorkeling and swimming.

The sand itself is blanketed by powdery shells giving it a pinkish tint. Cockle Bay is famous for fishing due to the vast reef but it is also appreciated for its unique clear water with very light shades of blue. 5 minutes away you will find the magnificent South Coast Horizon Hotel which provides luxury accommodation and adventure and tranquility in a serene and safe environment.
