In Antigua, Celebrating Cricket With “Beach 366”

By: Dana Niland - June 13, 2024

Cricket fans in Antigua and Barbuda are reveling in the sun and excitement at Beach 366, a pop-up beach created by the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Beach 366 made its debut at the ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup, adding a wave of enjoyment to the games. 

This unique beach setup features the 4 Knights Beach Bar, paying homage to Antigua and Barbuda’s legendary cricket knights – Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Andy Roberts, Sir Richie Richardson and Sir Curtly Ambrose – complete with iconic cricket photos and memorabilia.

“Antigua and Barbuda boasts 365 white and pink sand beaches, each offering a unique experience for every day of the year,” said Maria Blackman, Marketing-Communications Manager for the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority. “We are immensely proud of our beaches, each distinct and special in its own way. With 2024 being a leap year, we needed an extra beach for that extra day.”

“Additionally, 2024 is a significant year for cricket in Antigua and Barbuda, with numerous matches hosted at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium,” Blackman said. “Beach 366 was thoughtfully created and strategically positioned at the stadium to showcase our vibrant beach culture and cricketing heritage to sports fans.”

But Beach 366 is more than just a backdrop for cricket enthusiasts. 

During the T20 day matches, fans can indulge in a fun photo booth, enjoy happy hour, and participate in spin-the-wheel activities with enticing destination-worthy prizes. 

As night falls, the beach transforms into a romantic setting for the T20 night matches, aligning with the June celebration of Antigua and Barbuda Romance Month. 

Couples can bring their blankets and relax on the beach by candlelight while enjoying the matches.
