40 best romantic getaways
On the Waterfront
With miles of rugged Caribbean coastline and 365 beaches, you’re assured of more than a few private patches of sand on Antigua. But couples might want to stay put at just one—if they’re at the Hermitage Bay resort. Etched into a lush hillside overlooking the bay are 25 cottage suites, a private beach, plunge pools, and open-air verandas with billowing white curtains that frame the views. From the highest point in Antigua—where the remains of General Shirley’s 17th-century fort still stand—the sun sets beautifully over English Harbour and Galleon Beach. Go on a Sunday night and you’ll meet locals who gather there for a regular sunset party.
