Antigua is the ultimate romantic getaway location, with 365 beaches offering a dazzling array of picture-perfect settings. The beautiful leeward island of Antigua is just 14 miles long by 11 miles wide (22.5 by 17 kilometres), yet claims to have a beach for every day of the year. With every single one of the 365 soft, powdery sand beaches open to the public, the only challenge is picking a favourite.

Dickenson Bay

Dickenson Bay, one of Antigua’s most beautiful beaches, is a mile of soft powder sloping gently into calm, clear waters, protected by the reef. It’s what Caribbean beach dreams are made of – cooling trade winds, white sands and palm trees. Sandals Grande Antigua somehow manages to enhance that dream – the all-inclusive luxury hotel blending naturally into its prime beachside location, with six swimming pools and a wide range of unlimited land and sea sports. Watching the sunset from one of the 11 fine dining restaurants, it’s easy to see why World Travel Awards voted Sandals Grande Antigua the Caribbean’s Most Romantic Resort.
