Police Says No Beach Before May 5, 2020


The Police have increased their patrols around the beaches in Antigua and Barbuda in order to ensure strict compliance from beachgoers over the Labour Day, Holiday weekend.

No will be allowed on any beach before Tuesday 5th May, 2020 as set out in the curfew restrictions. Thereafter, anyone who wishes to go to the beach for the purpose of bathing or exercising must do so between the hours of 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. Weekends or holidays are not allowed.

No more than two persons from the same household will be allowed to be on any beach during the allotted time. Likewise, no food, music or any form of gathering or picnicking will be allowed to take place. Boat owners, who wish to utilize their boats, may only do so for the purpose fishing, and not leisure. Any form of loitering, liming or sightseeing is strictly prohibited.

The public is further reminded that only two persons from the same household should be seen travelling in the said vehicle at any given time. The social distancing guidelines must always be followed, and the mandatory wearing of mask in public is expected to be adhered to.

The Police Administration wishes everyone an enjoyable and incident-free Labour Day weekend, and trust all efforts will be made to stay safe and be protected from the Coronavirus.

  1. Stupid, how stupid these guidelines! The sea is so good for you! The fresh air and salt water does so good for your body! People work, how do they go to the beach!

  2. On many occasions a whole year passes and people don’t go to the beach! Al of a sudden its the beach the beach the beach!

    • Thong in Cheek: People fram tung go a beach ebery marning. Speak for yourself.Are the beaches pan Lang Island(Jumby Bay) open.

  3. The beaches will be accessible during the period Monday to Friday effective the 5th May, during the hours of 6am to 6pm, a whopping twelve hours! Do persons normally need to be on the beach for these twelve hours? Under the current prescription, there should be more than enough time for persons wishing to use the beaches, not monopolise them, for exercise and related therapy. More so if Chups and the queer ‘Antiguan’ opt to stay away. Pity how so many always see the glass as only half-empty.
