There is no question why Antigua is one of the top ten honeymoon destinations with its white beaches, striking sunsets and lush landscape. The sunshine, sands and rum punches are all well-known luxuries of the area, but the island offers so much more, making it an ideal location for newlyweds wanting to relax after the stresses of wedding preparations and also have some fun together at the same time! When you are not soaking up the sunshine and sinking the cocktails try deep-sea diving or zip-wiring through the rainforests - a must for thrill-seekers. Antigua is not large, but there is plenty to do by boat, from exploring isolated coves, offshore reefs, full-on yacht racing, snorkelling, sunset cruises, visit its rainforest or explore its sister island of Barbuda 30 miles north.
Antigua is one of two main islands that make up the Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda, and whilst it may not be the largest honeymoon destination, it definitely packs a punch when it comes to couple’s activities!
Famed for its vast Greenland and dreamy beaches, Antigua has the best of both in terms of luxury Caribbean beaches and gorgeous rainforest settings, making it a real front-runner choice for couples looking to honeymoon in the Caribbean.
Surrounded by the clearest of blue seas, Antigua is home to quite a few wow-factor attractions -with one of them being its beaches. The idyllic island has a total of 365 beaches, one for each day of the year if you’re planning a sabbatical honeymoon!
Here, couples can expect to find a rainbow of coral reefs to snorkel amongst, large yachts for luxury boat trips, smaller sailing boats for island hopping and traditional Antiguan delicacies served up on the shore.
As well as the luxury of beaches in Antigua, there’s also opportunities for couples to explore with hikes up Mount Obama, the highest point on the entire island, where you’ll be presented with breath-taking views of the island so remember your camera!
Couples can also spend the day shopping, eating at fine restaurants and enjoy cocktails at the local bars in Nelson’s Dockyard, a cultural heritage site and marina in Saint Paul Parish.
