Luxury St. Mary's Holidays

Lives up to the hype

St. Mary's

St. Mary’s sits in Antigua’s south-west corner, home to a powder-white coast and a clutch of the island’s best hotels. You’ve got the famous Turner’s Beach on your doorstop – a better-than-the-postcard kind of deal. It’s got the sort of pure, shallow waters you come to the island for, with spotless white sand that’s even finer and softer than it looks. There’s a lovely beach bar, too, good for cold beers and a seafood lunch. The nightlife in St Mary’s is generally reserved for the luxury hotels that speckle the beachfront, where you can spend an evening listening to local music with a cocktail.

A great place to watch the sunset from is Shirley Heights National Park - it's up on a clifftop with fantastic west-facing views over to English Harbour. On Sundays, sunset barbecue parties are held here, with live music, jerk chicken and plenty of rum punch. It's around half an hour's drive from St. Mary's.

When to go

Antigua’s Caribbean climate means year-round good weather. Average highs hover around 28°C in June, while the coldest month is January at a toasty 25°C. The rainy season takes place from June to November, with October racking up the most rainfall – unlike the constant drizzle we often get at home, Caribbean rain tends to fall in short, sharp bursts, usually followed by sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Antigua.


A 10% service charge will often be added to restaurant bills, however, for good service, it’s common to leave a 5% cash tip as well. Aim for a 10% tip on fixed taxi fares and a couple of dollars for porters and maids.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Antigua is English.
