Discover your own slice of paradise — the white-sand kind — when you visit Antigua. Here, legend has it, there’s actually a beach for every day of the year. (Leap years will have to share a little.) When you cruise to this island, located right in the heart of the Caribbean, you can’t help but notice relics of the island’s British colonial past — high tea is an afternoon ritual and cricket is the local passion, but this independent nation’s sunny island vibe reigns supreme. Got all that, chap?
- Swim in the clear, warm seas off one of the island’s 365 beaches.
