Swoon-Worthy Island Experiences

Romantic escapade options are abundant on this island, and often many of its scenic locales that are perfect for popping the question also double as Instagram-worthy settings for couple's photos. Plus, these areas can be easily accessed through a number of Sunwing Experiences that are managed by local destination experts.

Devil's Bridge National Park is where the wild, windswept craggy cliffs, natural rock arch and crashing surf paint a backdrop portrait that looks as if it was torn right off the cover of a bodice-ripper novel! A little less wild, but just as natural is Half Moon Bay, a secluded cove ideal for private picnics and solitary surfside strolls. And the panoramic bay views from Shirley's Heights are well worth the trek and make a lovely frame for your couple's selfies. Or, you can also stroll through the lush gardens of Wadadli Animal Nature Park and take a few lessons from the lovebirds there. The historic sites of Betty's Hope and Nelson's Dockyard also provide unique settings for proposals and photos.

Of course, there are few things as romantic as a sunset sail, and The Mystic Sunset Cruise delivers that in style. Snorkeling the crystalline waters around this island is also a pleasurable pastime; The Cades Reef Sail & Snorkel is a best bet for that type of underwater amour.

An Eclectic Array of Romantic Retreats

Some couples prefer no children wreaking havoc with their hammock time, but that's no problem as this island also has some superb adult-only resorts. Coco Bay Resort Antigua is one of them. Often voted one of Antigua's most romantic retreats, it delivers the ultimate in barefoot luxury and privacy. Charming Caribbean style cottages overlooking the bay with infinity plunge pools off the deck, deep soaking tubs, terrace hammocks and day beds provide canoodling ops galore. Galley Bay Resort and Spa is another, ensconced in an incredible water circuit of lush lagoons, waterfalls and with some romantic cottages with private plunge pools set the scene. Pineapple Beach Club- an intimate boutique style with lush gardens and water hammocks- is also an adult-only oasis where you'll also receive complimentary spirits of sparkling wine, rum or tequila and discounts of spa services as welcome gifts.

Romance is in the air in Antigua.
