F or rest or play, Antigua has a beach for every day!  Instead of dreaming about lying on the beach while staring your desktop's beach screen saver, consider visiting a Caribbean oasis and experience a different beach every day! In Antigua, you can visit 365 beautiful beaches-each offering unique locales to soak up the sun, surf the waves, meet marine life and much more. Though you'll likely run out of holiday time before you have a chance to explore every stellar strip of sand on offer there, Antigua is home to plenty of top-rated resorts that will make sure you get the most out of your stay-however long it is. Plus, you can easily reach the destination as Sunwing offers weekly direct flights from Montreal and Toronto, and take advantage of several Sunwing Experiences that offer easy access to some of this island's most popular beaches

Family-Friendly Fun Spots

If you have toddlers in tow, then you'll want to seek out baby powder soft sand and easy entry to clear swimming pool-like placid waters. One best bet for that would be Pigeon Point, where guests staying at St James Club and Villas have easy access to the beach that's perfect for families with little ones. Long Bay is another popular beach for wee ones as well. Older children will probably be happier at more action-packed spots with plenty of water sport options like Dickenson Bay, and parents will appreciate the abundant beach bars, snack spots, shade nooks and facilities there, too. Tweens, teens, young adults and older adventurers will truly enjoy taking a windsurfing or kiteboarding lesson at breezy Jabberwock Beach that has ideal conditions for learning and perfecting the art of "shredding".

Couple's Escapes

No children? No problem! Alluring sandy beaches flanked by craggy cliffs and emerald green foliage await romantics seeking those leisurely hand-in-hand sunset strolls and postcard perfect spots for private surfside picnics. Half Moon Bay Beach is one of those ideal-for-canoodling crescents, and it's a just a short hop away from The Verandah Resort and Spa, and Nonsuch Bay Resort. Seeking an even more sizzling setting to kindle or rekindle romance? Venture out to explore the four coves of Hawksbill Bay to find the last one one aptly named Eden Beach - the only place on island where one can legally get an "all-over tan". (Be forewarned that no cameras are allowed!)

Marine Life Meccas

More interested in what's going under the waves? Snorkel enthusiasts will be in underwater heaven as the entire island is surrounded by resplendent coral reefs full of colorful marine life. There are many snorkel trips out to the reefs by boat, but those staying at Starfish Jolly Beach Resort or Sugar Ridge Resort will find excellent snorkeling right off the beach and at nearby Carlisle Bay East, while guests at Cocobay Resort Antigua might find the snorkeling at Darkwood Beach easier to access. And guests of Nonsuch Bay Resort can enjoy a guided eco tour via boat to uninhabited Green Island for superb snorkeling as well. And not only divers can access the shipwreck off the coast of Deep Bay Beach. At only 35 ft. below, snorkelers can view it too!

Socializing In The Sand

If surfside party and people-meeting spots are more your style, then great food, drink, camaraderie, shopping, and water sports of every kind are all to be found at action packed Jolly Harbour Beach the nexus of island surfside revelry. Turner's Beach is also action paced and within easy access for guests staying at Cocobay Resort Antigua, Starfish Jolly Beach Resort, and Sugar Ridge Resort.
