Why Stay At Galley Bay Resort & Spa
This intimate all-inclusive features 98 rooms, suites, and cottages on a private, three-quarter-mile-long Caribbean beach on Antigua Island.
When guests arrive, they are greeted by a blue lagoon that's home to numerous tropical plants, flowers, and birds. The rest of this secluded resort awaits over the lagoon's bridge—a quick golf-cart ride away. The rooms and suites are just steps from the beach and decorated in tasteful seaside décor (think hand-painted lamps, dark acacia wood furnishings). The cottages are equipped with private plunge pools and feature Tahitian accents (woven bamboo ceilings and rustic, whitewashed walls with terracotta details). Outside of these comfortable quarters, guests can partake in a number of complimentary activities, including snorkeling, kayaking, and lawn games like croquet and horseshoes. To round out the experience, Galley Bay also has three restaurants and bars and a recently built spa with a well-curated menu of treatments.
Make a dinner reservation at Ismay's, Galley Bay's latest restaurant. The romantic waterfront space has tasty dishes like conch-and-cilantro fritters and cane-skewered swordfish.
Enjoy the sunset with a Caribbean Romance cocktail—a potent but delicious concoction of rum, amaretto, and fresh orange and pineapple juices, garnished with a lime.

Why We Love St. John's
Vibrant cultural heritage and white-sand beaches make for a dynamically serene Caribbean escape.
Heritage Quay: St. John's shopping hub. Skip the touristy souvenir shops and head to the area's many art galleries where local work is on display.
High Street and Thames Street.
Historic Architecture: The original wooden St. John's Cathedral was built in 1683 and later destroyed in a fire. Rebuilt in 1843, the beautiful white stone church still holds regular services as well as tours for visitors.
Long Street and Church Lane.
Island Culture: The Museum of Antigua and Barbuda has a number of small but interesting exhibits on the island's historic origins, ecosystems, and settlements.
Long Street, St. John's.
Live Music, Great Views, Tasty Barbecue: On Thursdays and Sundays, head to Shirley Heights for great views of English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor. Stick around for barbecue, dancing, and live music from a steel band symphony and reggae group.
