Hermitage Bay Beach

Where is Hermitage Bay Beach?


The beautiful Hermitage Beach is located on the west coast of Antigua about 30 minutes from the bustling city of St Johns. It is situated at the end of a very rocky terrain in the village of Jennings.


It takes about 30 minutes from St Johns city to get to Jennings Village where you will have to drive for another 10 minutes from Valley Road through a rocky terrain which leads to Hermitage Bay beach. We highly recommend an offroad vehicle to get here- It is accessible by any type of vehicle, however, the road is rugged and can get quite bumpy in some areas.

For an adventurous journey to the Hermitage Bay beach, check out 268 buggies for an exclusive off-road buggy tour experience. Relocate Antigua also offers Car and Chauffeur services so you can get to Hermitage Bay beach easier.


Tucked away in a lush secluded area in Jennings on the West coast of Antigua, is a charming stretch of sparkling white sand and beautiful turquoise water-Hermitage Bay beach is a true mark of paradise. It is home to the prestigious Hermitage Bay Hotel, a chic luxury hotel that offers beachfront dining and exquisite cottages and suites.

This secluded beach is the perfect destination for a picnic, exciting watersports, or just unwinding
