"A beachcomber’s delight"
The beach at Hermitage Bay spans one of the most beautiful, protected coves in Antigua. Extending for some 1,250 feet, the plentiful sand varies in texture from powder-white to smooth, colourful seashells. A coral reef thrives immediately in front of the property, providing a natural wave barrier and convenient snorkelling. On either side, the calm, crystal clear waters of the bay are ideal for swimming.
Once a year, Antigua’s Environmental Awareness Group hosts a workshop for hotels - like Hermitage Bay - with turtle nesting beaches. With an aim to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the endangered sea turtles that populate Antigua and Barbuda, our key hotel staff and interested visitors are provided with an introduction to sea turtle ecology, best practice guidelines for sea turtle encounters, and tips for maintaining nesting beaches. While the subdued lighting used throughout the resort allows for incredible stargazing, it is also an example of an environmentally conscious decision made to accommodate the marine life that inhabits the bay.
