Antiguan beach life

Armed with our swimming costumes we set off to walk to the nearest beach. I thought that the ship's information leaflet said that the beach was about a mile away, but by the time we got there it was more like three.
Still, it was good exercise and arriving hot and sweaty is a great reason to just get straight in.
The beach was surprisingly quiet, so maybe the other passengers had read the leaflet more carefully and had caught one of the very many taxis to one of the more well known beaches.
Fantastic news for us as we had the beach almost to ourselves, apart from the guy offering horse rides through the waves.
Interesting fact of the day - Antigua is roughly circular in shape and only 12 miles in diameter, but it has 365 beaches. How fantastic!
