In the Land of Beaches, the Yachtsman Is King - Antigua is a major yachting hub in the Caribbean, home to significant regattas and quality yacht services. But the island nation of Antigua & Barbuda is also known for its multitude of beaches (365 of them!), which are ideally discovered by boat. Some of the best beaches are fun because of their popularity with the masses, and others are enjoyable because of their exclusivity. For the latter secluded kind of beach, you'll definitely benefit from having a private yacht at your disposal!
To get the Caribbean mood going, it's recommended that you visit Carlisle Bay. Situated among coconut groves as it is, you'll immediately be immersed in the sweet aroma of island life. The Curtain Bluff hotel at Carlisle Bay marks the start of two beaches that extend outwards to the super blue of Atlantic Ocean water meeting the Caribbean Sea.
This bay is notable with the windsurfing crowd on account of the big waves that frequently stir up this area. Half Moon Bay's beach is a mile long so feel free to walk the shore while taking in six foot wave views from a safe distance! There is actually a reef here that provides protection for snorkelers, if you'd rather float calmly in the water.
