Dian Bay is an idyllic resort that incorporates white sandy beaches and exotic vegetation. Hidden away on the unspoilt northeast coast of Antigua, the resort lies adjacent to the Indian Town National Park. Thought to have been an Arawak campsite prior to the arrival of Europeans, the national park incorporates marked nature trails and crystal-clear bays. The historic Devil’s Bridge is only a brief walk away. This natural arch was carved by the sea from soft and hard limestone ledges of the Antigua coastline. There are many other points of outstanding natural beauty in the area around Dian Bay but the pristine secluded beach is the main attraction.

Situated at the island's most extreme southern region, English Harbour is Antigua's graceful and evocative historic district, full of charm and folklore. Taking its name from the nearby harbour in which the English Royal Navy established its base of operations during the 18th century, English Harbour is a centre ideally suited for boating and yachting. It is here that Anituga's Sailing Week takes place as one of the top regattas in the world with six days of challenging racing and plenty of social activities for everyone to enjoy.

jumby bay island

Two miles off  Antigua's north-eastern coast lies the country's best kept secret, a private 300 acres long gem of pristine beaches accessible only by boat and comprising a selection of luxury suites and villas in a private island setting.

One of the most secluded of Caribbean hideaways, Jumby Bay has the unique background story of once being an ancient coral reef originally discovered by Columbus in 1493. Starting off as a sugar mill, after a series of owners, a small group of homeowners decided to buy the whole island to protect it from becoming overpopulated and to preserve its secluded ambience. It was then that they hired Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to manage the resort with the focus of keeping Jumby Bay as a unique ultra-luxurious island resort at the top of its class.

mamora bay

Mamora Bay on the south side of Antigua boasts a gentle hillside that cascades down to a wonderful white sandy beach. The headland is surrounded on three sides by the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea and offers stunning views over Mamora Bay. Antigua's beaches are spectacular and the waters are as warm as the welcome you will receive from its friendly people. Nearby English Harbour contains the historic Nelson's Dockyard. This naval centre has inns and nautical buildings dating back to the 18th century when the British Navy used this area as an important base. You will find a small village at neighbouring Falmouth Harbour with relaxed restaurants and shops. For fine views over the south coast, Shirley Heights provides an ideal lookout point with the remains of substantial fortifications. At Mamora Bay you will find a varied choice of water-sports and activities to suit both adults and children.

morris bay

Situated down Antigua's south coast, only a short way from Turners and right alongside the plush Curtain Bluff hotel, Morris Bay is said to be the most spectacular of beaches for watching sunsets in Antigua.

Withs its clear waters fringed by tall coconut trees and sceninc surrounding landscape at Morris Bay you'll always find some friendly animals grazing around. Cows and horses can often been seen enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings. The water on this beach side is often just a little cooler and glistening crystal clear making it perfect for some peaceful snorkelling time during your Antigua holidays at this virtually deserted beach.

st johns

St John's is the capital of Antigua and is a vibrant hub for shopping, sightseeing, and dining. Candy-coloured buildings line the streets and the skyline is dominated by the impressive white baroque towers of St John's Cathedral. The quiet quayside at St John's transforms into a vibrant and colourful market when cruise ships dock in the harbour. Heritage Quay offers the best shopping and the buzzing markets on the southern edge of St John's come alive on Friday and Saturday mornings. Folk crafts, tropical fruits, and a buzzing crowd make for an exciting morning. To learn about the island's early cultures, visit the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, housed in a 1750s colonial courthouse. The museum also celebrates Antigua’s fierce devotion to cricket with memorabilia from the islands cricket legends including Viv Richards on display. Cricket is played everywhere on Antigua but The Antigua Recreation Ground is one of the most exciting places in the world to observe a game of cricket.

The parish of Saint Mary's in Antigua sits on a secluded area of immense tranquility where little activity can be found, except for that provided by the resorts in the area, most of them luxurious and with their own set of private beaches.

St Mary's is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy quiet and relaxing Antigua holidays in a virtually untouched setting while being only 30 minutes away from the famous Nelson's Dockyard and the lively English Harbour.
