The Antigua holiday guide

Every month we’re bringing you a brand new destination guide in collaboration with our travel partner Virgin Holidays. This month we’re escaping to the Caribbean, come away with us as we explore the best things to do and pack on an Antigua holiday.

The month:

Okay, so maybe April in the British Isles isn’t all blue skies and palm trees. But that’s all the more reason to go someplace where it is. The month marks the end of peak-season and with a low chance of rain, April-onwards is the perfect time for your Antigua escape.

The Destination:

Antigua, ‘Where life’s always a beach’. Visit this Caribbean isle and find breathtaking mountains, bustling towns and – of course – the pristine beaches of its curving coastline.

The day out:

Dive into the deep blue on an Eco Tour snorkelling excursion you’ll never forget. Don’t fancy getting your feet wet? Meet the island’s spectacular marine life on a glass-bottom boat trip. Antigua also boasts scenic hiking and kayaking adventures so there’ll be plenty to keep you busy – if you can drag yourself away from the pool…

The hotel:

The exclusive, adults-only Galley Bay Resort and Spa is top of our Antigua holiday wishlist. With the clear sea on one side and a peaceful natural lagoon on the other, this hotel looks like the most relaxing place on earth, let alone Antigua. The resort is host to three open-air beachfront restaurants and a laid-back ‘BareFoot’ grill. If you’re looking for adventure, they offer a whole host of activities and a beautiful spa to help you relax afterwards.

The beauty must-have:

We should all know by now how important sun protection is. The sun’s rays cause both short and long term damage so it’s important to have high-quality SPF handy at all times, especially when somewhere as sunny as Antigua. This UV-Bronze Mist from Filorga is our beauty must-have because it not only protects, it nourishes your skin too. The refreshing mist is packed with antioxidants and nutrients which are both anti-ageing and radiance- boosting. Plus, you can also use it on your hair! Click here to shop.
