The island of Antigua boasts 365 beaches— that’s right, enough to visit a new beach every day for an entire year. While its powder-white sands and glistening teal waters continue to lure international travelers back season after season, the small Caribbean island offers various experiences for all types of visitors, from historical venues to natural wonders.
Here are some must-see sites for your next trip to Antigua.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet and secluded beach to relax on or a lively beach full of activities, Antigua has you covered. The variety of all-inclusive resorts and day tours to take you to remote slices of paradise will be sure to satisfy all your cravings. For a full range of beach amenities and aquatic sports, be sure to check out Dickenson Bay. If you want a more laid-back experience, Half Moon Bay or Doigs Beach are the perfect destinations.
Antigua has two iconic rock formations: Devil’s Bridge and the Pillars of Hercules. Devil’s Bridge is a fascinating limestone bridge carved out by the sea. Surrounding the area, you’ll also find geysers and blowholes, which are best seen during high tide. The Pillars of Hercules is another set of unique rock structures formed by the ocean’s waves. These formations are chiseled against a cliff, carving pillars onto the side.
Antigua’s military history is spread throughout the island, offering multiple sites to see on a driving tour. The most popular stop is at the 18th-century British naval dockyard and UNESCO World Heritage site, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Other historical sites not to miss on the island include the remnants of Fort James and Fort Barrington, as well as a panoramic view overlooking the island at Fort Shirley.

Prior to meeting Mary Beth, we hadn’t really thought of using anyone to book our honeymoon. However, after we met Mary Beth with Your Vacation Plan & had discussions on what she would handle (which was everything!), it was the best decision we made. Mary Beth took the time to research what we were looking for & gave us options. Not only did she supply the pros to the resorts, but also the cons from personal experience which honestly, is the best way for us to decide. We love anyone who can relate and be personable!! She truly cared about what place would work best for us & was so transparent! Planning a wedding is stressful enough & working with Mary Beth was such a breeze. I would 100% recommend booking through Your Vacation Plan. We look forward to booking other trips through them! You will not be disappointed with the service. Thank you, Mary Beth for taking this stress off our shoulders & recommending such a beautiful place for our honeymoon
"Mary Beth was phenomenal to work with! Thank you SO MUCH for making our honeymoon the most amazing experience and vacation we have been on!! With things changing almost daily with covid, she was SO helpful and reassuring through the whole process. We could not thank her enough for creating such an incredible experience for us. From start to finish she kept us up to date, suggested alternatives when our original plans fell through, and did it all with such a kind and calming presence. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We are SO thankful and will 100% use Your Vacation Plan in the future for our travels. Thank you!!
Mary Beth is wonderful! She always has your best interest in mind while helping you plan your vacation. When unexpected cancellations came up for our trip she had us rebooked while she was at an appointment! She also gave us great ideas for our excursions. She is the only travel agent we will use!
Because of the COVID-19, we wound up changing our honeymoon destination, and we could not have been happier! I honestly believe that our honeymoon was even better than what we had originally had planned in Jamaica, and that’s all thanks to Mary Beth’s hard work! We had the trip of a lifetime, and will absolutely be going through Mary Beth next time! She is incredibly detail oriented and diligent, so every time we considered changing plans, she was right there providing her expertise and insight into our options. She worked many late nights, kept in consistent contact about everything that was going on in the country we were going to be visiting. I 100% recommend you use Mary Beth for any and all of your travel needs! Her hard work and passion will make your planning experience more enjoyable and your traveling experience to die for!
