This English-speaking island was once Great Britain’s most important Caribbean outpost. Now, the coral reefs that attracted the Royal Navy make the island a paradise for snorkelers and scuba divers, and the winding coastline features numerous secluded, sandy beaches. There are said to be 365 of them — One for every day of the year! English Harbour and neighboring Shirley Heights are rich in landmarks that evoke the island’s colonial past.


Galley Bay Resort & Spa

Antigua’s Exotic Escape for Two

For an exotic escape, Galley Bay is the perfect Adult-Only, All-Inclusive resort. Its secluded setting on Antigua’s northwest coast is embraced by the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea and a magnificent ¾ mile white-sand beach. Yet it is only a quick ride away from Antigua’s capital St. John’s with its casino and wide array of duty-free shopping.

Most of the rooms in this intimate, romantic Caribbean resort are directly on the beach. And couples who truly want a romantic getaway can escape to the brand new, chic Gauguin Suites, each with their own plunge pool. Once you experience the exceptional intimate ambiance of Galley Bay–voted as one of the “Top 100 resorts of the World” and among the “Top 10 Best Resorts for Romance in the Caribbean” by the readers of–you’ll want to return again and again.
