Galley Bay Resort & Spa – Antigua
A honeymoon to Antigua is all about the beaches. Antigua has 365, one for every day of the year. Most of the beaches are located along the calm, protected waters of the island’s Caribbean side. The coast is dotted with safe harbors and calm, relaxing waters. Couples will find the whitest sand and relaxing clear aqua waters. The island has warm, constant winds and a protective, almost unbroken coral reef, which makes it great for snorkeling.
On Antigua, love fills the air and offers honeymooners a romantic haven to begin their new lives together. The island offers wonderful resorts with accommodations for every budget.
Antigua is located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Nearby, to the south are the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe, and to the north and west are St. Kitts, St. Barts, Nevis and St. Martin.
Antigua is a world class yachting and sailing center. Nelson’s Dockyard National Park is a beautiful harbor full of history and cultural heritage. Couples will want to include a visit to Shirley Heights where there are breathtaking views over English Harbour, especially at sunset. Simply gorgeous!
The beautifully restored buildings and grounds at Redcliff Quay offer great shopping opportunities in the capital of St. Johns. Sting Ray City offers the chance to pet and feed friendly stingrays in their natural habitat. Couples can also take a Canopy Zip Lining Tour over the lush rain forest. The neighboring sister island of Barbuda is only a 10 minute flight or quick catamaran ride away, where you can explore the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, or find a quiet spot alone on one of Barbuda’s beautiful beaches.
