Antigua is one of the most romantic destinations in the Caribbean. And much of that is due to the long stretches of pristine coastlines with white-sand beaches. There are 365 powdery sand beaches in Antigua, so all you need to do is find the right one for you. 

Many hotels have privatised the beach their resorts sit on, so it’s best to find a luxury beach hotel in Antigua with everything you need for your beach break.

With plenty of beach bars, cabanas and lazy days on a hammock, you’ll sink into serenity as you listen to the soft waves of the ocean. As well as more adventurous watersports like snorkelling with the manta rays, kayaking, paddle boarding and jet skiing. 

This list reveals the best Antigua beach resorts with the best ocean view suites, activities and boat trip excursions.
