Antigua honeymoons just for you

Encircled by 95 miles of stunning coastline, Antigua is the perfect choice for a laidback honeymoon in the Caribbean. This scenic island is surrounded by coral reefs and home to no fewer than 365 beaches – so where better to enjoy some relaxing downtime as newlyweds? You can spend your days strolling along chalk-white sands, snorkelling in the turquoise ocean, and chilling out in your idyllic resort.


There are some fantastic places to stay on your Antigua honeymoon. Whether you’re looking for a five-star beachfront hotel or an adults-only resort with plenty of activities, you’re sure to find it here. Opt for all-inclusive luxury at Sandals Grande Antigua, choose Carlisle Bay for a boutique retreat, or book your own exclusive villa at Blue Waters Resort & Spa. If you can’t decide, our knowledgeable experts are on hand to help you choose the perfect spot for you.

Although the picture-perfect beaches and stunning resorts are Antigua’s crowning glory, you’ll also find lots of other attractions on your honeymoon. Culture-lovers should visit English Harbour, Shirley Heights Lookout and the UNESCO-protected Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Or, if you’re a pair of adventurers, see Antigua from a different angle by going sailing and zip-lining. And there are endless watersports on offer from the beautiful beaches. Go stand-up paddle-boarding on the calm waters, or get your heart racing on a jet-ski.

However you’re planning to spend your Antigua honeymoon, we’ll tailor your getaway to suit you. And we can sort any little extras – including room upgrades, romantic dinners for two and Champagne on arrival – to make your break even more special. What are you waiting for? Call our experts today to start planning your dream honeymoon to Antigua.

Honeymoon hotels in Antigua

When deciding where to stay for your Antigua honeymoon, you’ll have plenty of options. If you’re looking for an all-inclusive resort, Sandals Grande Antigua is the ideal choice. Exclusively for adults, this five-star spot boasts 11 restaurants, seven bars and endless activities. Plus, you’ll be right on the pure-white sands of Dickenson Bay, the longest beach in Antigua.

Alternatively, take a look at Carlisle Bay. Home to just 87 luxurious suites, this beautiful hotel is all about exclusivity. Take some time out in your plush suite, where you can unwind in your deep-soaking bathtub and sip cocktails on your terrace. Stroll along the powdery beach, or have a therapeutic massage for two in the spa.

Or you could retreat to Blue Waters Resort & Spa, tucked away in the northwest corner of Antigua. Relax on the picturesque beach, enjoy a pamper session in the spa, and dine in the stunning clifftop restaurant. And, at the end of each day, you can return to your elegant suite or private villa.

Best beaches in Antigua

Like most Caribbean isles, Antigua is home to an array of impressive beaches, featuring turquoise waters, sugary sands and nodding palm trees. Dickenson Bay is the island’s most famous beach, and a must-visit on your Antigua honeymoon. A mile of powdery sand is brushed by clear seas, and the bay is protected by an off-shore reef, making it great for swimming. There are lots of watersports available here, too, including jet-skiing, kayaking and sailing.

But if you’re looking for a secluded beach for a romantic picnic, consider visiting Half Moon Bay. Pristine and unspoiled, this swathe of blush-coloured sand is often empty, although you’ll probably spy a few windsurfers in the sea. Just make sure you pack everything you need for the day, as this rugged spot doesn’t have any facilities.
For something in-between popular and rustic, consider travelling east to Long Bay. With calm waters, talc-white sands and a scattering of restaurants, this picturesque beach strikes the perfect balance between tranquility and practicality.

Activities for two

If you can drag yourself away from the beach, you’ll find plenty of other things to do on your Antigua honeymoon. See the island from the ocean, as you charter your own boat and take it out on to the Caribbean Sea on a full-day excursion. You’re bound to spot lots of romantic coves on your way – why not stop for a snorkel or a laidback picnic?

Inland, meanwhile, Antigua’s lush interior offers all kind of adventures. If you’re a pair of adrenaline junkies, you could go zip-lining through the trees. Or, if you’d prefer something a little more relaxing, hop in a double kayak and paddle through the tropical mangroves, looking out for exotic birds.

When you fancy a spot of sightseeing, you should make tracks for Shirley Heights Lookout. Hike to the top to admire the staggering views across English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour. For a touch of romance, why not time your walk to coincide with sunset? You can sit back with a glass of fruity rum punch, listen to traditional Caribbean music, and watch the sun sink below the horizon.

Best time to visit Antigua

This tropical island is warm all year round, but winter is the best time for your Antigua honeymoon – which is perfect timing if you’re planning to get married in summer or autumn. Between December and April, you can look forward to plenty of sunshine, minimal rainfall and average temperatures of 26°C, although the mercury often reaches 30°C. February to April is the driest time of year.

Due to the season’s lovely weather, winter is also the most expensive time to visit Antigua. So if you’re travelling on a budget, you could consider booking your honeymoon for November or May, when you can expect good weather and affordable prices. You might get the odd rain shower, but there’ll still be plenty of sunshine.

July to October is hurricane season, so this time of year is best avoided.
