Antigua: Caribbean Honeymoon Hotspot

Antigua is famous for its stunning coastline and rainforest, and is one of the most picture perfect islands in the Caribbean. Unsurprisingly then, it is a hotspot for weddings and honeymoons alike, as couples head off in search of the most beautiful backdrop for their precious memories. Its winning formula for lovebirds has recently been solidified, as, this September; Antigua won the award for the best honeymoon destination of the Caribbean at the World Travel Awards Caribbean and the Americas gala ceremony. With many fabulous hotels and Antigua Flights at very reasonable prices, this is a paradise within reach. Here are some fantastic ways to see the sights.

 

Hike

The rainforest provides a huge playground for couples that enjoy hiking, and there are many sights you simply cannot find anywhere else in the world. The plant life features exotic treats like coconut trees and guava, and there are wonderful creatures like tree frogs and geckos living in amongst the trees. Explore as far as you can, and your legs will give up before your curiosity does.

 

Ride

There are many riding schools on the island, and you can choose between a sandy seaside jaunt at sunset, or a trot through the forest trails. Horseback is a fantastic way to see the island, and is wonderfully romantic in a setting as stunning as this.

 

Dive

Beneath the water lies another superb landscape, ready for you to explore. Enjoy the views below sea level by taking a trip scuba diving, and see creatures like nurse sharks and turtles in their natural habitat, as well as the reef itself. The south coast is best for diving, so head here for the best experience.

Your honeymoon will be memorable wherever you go, but by visiting Antigua, the romantic gem of the Caribbean, you will have some once in a lifetime opportunities to mark the start of your happy life together in an extra special way.
