Local Flavours of Antigua

Antigua offers the honeymoon couple a large variety of culinary options. International cuisine is widely available but tracking down a local restaurant is not too difficult. Local cooking tends to use a lot of seafood and West Indian spices (which often find their way in to a lot of the more international dishes as well). For those not keen on seafood dishes try Souse (Pork marinated in lime juice and spices) or Pepperpot Stew (Salted beef and pork with local vegetables and cornmeal dumplings).




On a Night in Antigua

Nightlife in Antigua is low key and is based in the bars and restaurants of the large hotel resorts. There are also bars and nightclubs in the larger tourist areas which make for excellent nights out as well as casinos in some of the larger hotels for those of you who fancying a flutter.

Shopping in Antigua

Shopping is probably not something that Antigua is renowned for however that doesn’t mean you won’t find some fabulous items to put in your case on the way home.

There are a host of duty free shops selling everything from branded liqueurs to upscale jewellery, perfume and handbags. Failing that, for something more eclectic to remember your Antigua honeymoon by, keep your eyes out for local art, crafts and island made pottery.

Top Resorts in Antigua

You can’t really pick the wrong resort for your Antigua honeymoon though there are a couple of options depending on your preferences.

The south west of Antigua, where Darkwood Beach, Coco Beach and Turners Beach can all be found, provides peace and tranquillity for its visitors.

The northwest coast, home to the island’s capital St. John’s, has most of the well developed resorts resulting in a slightly busier feel.

Out & About in Antigua

Antigua has a fascinating history and was a landing point over the years for Christopher Columbus, Christopher Codrington and Horatio Nelson. Any visit to Antigua therefore wouldn’t be complete without a trip to English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard which, since full restoration, is the only Georgian dockyard in the world. A day trip to the beautiful island of Barbuda is also well worth adding to your Antigua honeymoon schedule.
