Honeymooners who want to explore a different beach every day could spend a whole year on Antigua. According to the tourism folks, Antigua has 365 beaches in every activity level: stretches of white sand border turquoise waters teeming with marine life, beaches where you hardly see another soul, beaches where you buy a burger at beachside grill, and beaches where you can just curl up together under a tall coconut palm. If it’s seclusion you’re after, consider a visit to Antigua’s sister island, Barbuda. Day trips to this island (once known as a getaway spot favored by Princess Diana) are available from several operators.
Best Honeymoon Features: beaches, snorkeling, sailing, some all-inclusives, historic sites
Worst Honeymoon Features: fairly large island that’s not as pristine as some smaller Caribbean destinations
