First Time in Caribbean, Antigua a good choice?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are heading to the Caribbean in late April. We both want beautiful, uncrowded beaches, friendly people, and good food.

He's an experienced sailor, so we thought Antigua might be a good pick?

We're not interested in All Inclusive resorts, we prefer simplicity and something that feels authentic to the Caribbean but is still clean, safe and nice.

Hiking or some sight seeing would be nice, or possibly surfing and we'd prefer a french speaking or english speaking island that is easy to get to from both the USA and Europe.

Is there anywhere decent to stay on Antigua that is affordable and not an All Inclusive?

It will be both of our first time to the Caribbean. Any help is much appreciated!
