  • An Antiguan Weekend

    Arrive after lunch, jump in the ocean and then head to Cecilia's High Point Cafe on the north coast for dinner outside.


    Head to Half Moon Bay in the morning for a beautiful beach day. Order the grilled lobster plate for lunch at its beachside Beach Bum Bar & Grill, an open-air, beach bar owned by Tippi Thomas and Avery Henry from Freetown.

    If you like art, spend the afternoon in the rainforest for local art at the Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery. Rainforest Zipline Tours are nearby.

    If you're craving more time on the water, spend the afternoon at 40knots and take a kitesurfing or windsurfing lesson.

    Have dinner at Famous Mauro’s Pizza, an amazing, wood oven pizzeria, in St. Paul’s Parish. Eat outside on their patio before driving a few minutes to English Harbor to walk around the docks and look at the incredible boats by moonlight.


    Spend Sunday in Falmouth Harbor. With many fruit stands and small galleries, it's an easy place to walk around.

    Have a late lunch at Catherine's Café. Order rosé, escargot for the table and fresh fish. Wear a bathing suit under your clothes to swim at nearby Pigeon Point Beach between courses.

    After lunch, drive to nearby Shirley Heights to watch the sun set over English Harbor with a live steel band and barbeque. To continue the night, head to The Road House for more live music and dancing.


    Before your flight home, explore St. John's, the island's capital. Don’t miss Miranda Askie Jewelry, Natura Honey and Jams or Sarah Fuller's Pottery outpost. Grab a bite at C&C Wine Bar and bring home bottles of Susie’s Hot Sauce for family and friends who like heat.

    Sarah Fuller's full studio is in Coolidge, close to the airport and open to visitors Monday through Friday, 9:30am - 3pm. All pottery is made using clay from Antigua's hills.
