Antigua is a beautiful Caribbean island nation that is known for its sandy beaches. People say there is a beach there for every day of the year, and we do not doubt that. It sits along the English Harbour which was used as a marina and dockyard in the 1780s. There is shopping in St. John’s, the local food scene helps you try foods outside of the usual, there are watersports everywhere, and you can enjoy rainforest zip lining and tours.
Many will come for the horseback riding which is popular here, and Carnival, a 12 day celebration celebrating Caribbean culture. We cannot forget to mention the natural attractions her like Devil’s Bridge rock formation, the brilliantly blue Caribbean, and the luxurious hotels like the Inn at English Harbour. This colonial style cottage lies on Antigua’s southern coast, just steps from one of the glorious beaches here.
The Inn at English Harbour makes the most of the sandy white beaches with perfectly placed hammocks that are just perfect for watching the sun rise and set with coffee, or a rum punch. Aside from the wonderful sunsets, you will rest in luxurious comfort in your choice of Junior Suite, Deluxe Suite, or Beach Cabana. Each of the 28 rooms is custom designed with unique art and in a discreet setting away from other rooms.
The suites have dark mahogany floors, king, twin of queen sized beds, large modern baths, toilet, bidet, his & her vanity, and walk-in shower. There are lower rooms that have large garden verandas, and the upper floors have large balconies. The Deluxe Suite escalates this feeling with vaulted ceilings, while the Beach Cabana is best for its spectacular sea views, marble floors, queen beds, cane furniture, direct beach access and two private sun beds.
