Check out our other Caribbean blogs or follow in Jane’s footsteps and create a Caribbean escape for yourself. Which island will be on your bucket list?
Last on Jane’s once in a lifetime Caribbean itinerary was Antigua, with its coral reefs and exquisite beaches. Amid its colourfully Caribbean villages and laidback character, Antigua has a distinctly English nature to it.
Antigua’s many bays were once popular with pirates and naval fleets alike, including Admiral Nelson. This famed flag officer has been immortalised in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Nelson’s Dockyard in the English Harbour, which Jane toured during her stay.
Did you know that Antigua is home to an impressive 365 beaches, meaning you could technically have a different beach for every day of the year? Guests at Curtain Bluff get to undergo their own beach personality test, which identifies the perfect beach for you.
“Jane’s perfect match was Pigeon Point Beach in the English Harbour, so naturally she had to visit it,” explains Ellie, “And the good news is she wasn’t disappointed - it was glamorous and popular!”
While there, Jane dined at Catherine’s Café, a beachside brasserie that meets Parisian chic, and is an incredible place to spend a lingering, leisurely lunch with your loved ones. Think daybeds sprawled on white sands, classical French sharing platters, and fragrant greenery of neem trees and orchids - and you’re almost there!
