Horseback riding at Dickinson Beach. Ask for Lionel, great dreads!

Obviously you can get some great deals in the off-season. But if you really want quiet, stay away from all but the tony, pricey, more intimate all-inclusives (such as Galley Bay, Curtain Bluff, Blue Waters). Siboney Beach Club is a great little find on Dickenson Bay. You'll find seclusion on the more rugged east coast, but I feel the hotels aren't great value (or they're.... big all-inclusives). I have mixed feelings about CocoBay, but it's smaller at least, as is its sister property Coconut Beach. Harmony Hall had some nice villas, but not sure they're operational in June/July. If you can give an idea of budget (and what else you're looking for beyond peace and quiet), that will help.

Let me first do the basic research and then come back to ask some questions.

With all the great beaches, there are plenty of quiet places to relax and read. If you have questions while deciding let us know. I'm sure the group can provide some advice if you need it.

Not yet decided - I just have a plane ticket - thanks to a DBC voucher :) I am still planning/researching for a hideaway. I have to do some serious reading so need a calm place

Hi Anil, yes they do have 365 beaches. Where are you staying while you're on island?
Comment by Anil on June 10, 2010 at 1:40pm
This is my first trip. I gather they have 365 beaches. Amazing if it is true

Hi everyone. I just returned from a quick trip to Antigua. Two restaurants that I enjoyed were OJs (as Jordan mentioned) and the Bay House restaurant at Trade Winds hotel. For beach-shack I liked Castaways on Jolly Beach at Jolly Harbour. The beach there is amazing, and food and drinks are good.

Sadly, some of the fun "hidden" restaurants -- and the best eateries, for that matter -- have closed the past couple of years. Papa Zouk in St. John's is a cool spot for seafood, with 200 rums by the glass at their tiny bar. Catherine's Cafe and Johnny CocoNat (next door to each other) in the English/Falmouth harbour area are excellent, as is Cecelia's at High Point (north coast). La Bussola serves up great Italian on Runaway Bay. (These aren't exactly secrets though)... As for beach liming, try Turner's and OJ's at Crabbe Hill. The Beach used to be good at Dickenson Bay; best for cocktails now.
