Warm breezes, powdery soft beaches, massive walls of coral reef and sparkling seas make weddings and honeymoons in Antigua truly magical. If you’re looking for a beautiful location for your destination wedding ceremony, look no further than the beach. Antigua boasts 365 beaches, most of which are situated on the island’s Caribbean side. All of the beaches have soft white sand and perfect views of crystal-blue waters, making casual beach weddings romantic and intimate.

The island has many resorts offering a number of ceremony and reception venues – everything from garden gazebos to canopies on the beach and indoor settings. No matter what your style, you’ll find a venue perfect for your special day.

After the wedding, explore the island. Visit the different beaches – some of the most popular beaches are Dickenson Bay, Runaway Bay, Fort James, and Deep Bay. There are many water activities to keep you busy. From surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving to wind surfing, kayaking and swimming, there’s plenty to do at the beach.

If you prefer to stay on dry land, there are a number of activities available. Play a game of cricket, tennis or golf, go hiking, bike riding or shopping. If you’d prefer to go exploring, check out Shirley Heights (an array of military buildings), Sea View Farm Village, which features folk pottery, and the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda. No matter where your interests lie, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy during your stay.

When night falls, the fun continues. You’ll find a range of bars, restaurants, swanky taverns and cafes, all of which offer great food, drinks and entertainment.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect destination for your first trip as newlyweds or a special place for an unforgettable wedding, you won’t be disappointed with the beautiful island of Antigua.
