Antigua is a beautiful place to spend an unconventional winter. With an average temperature of 28 degrees and a flight from London lasting 8.5 hours, you have time to kick back, relax, and shed the stress of 2020 as you soar away for a well-deserved break in the sun.
Once unpacked, you can swim to your heart’s content in private infinity pools – which stay warm all winter long – or take advantage of the island’s stunning natural features, such as Devil’s Bridge, Pigeon Point Beach, and the Pillars of Hercules.
There is much to take advantage of at our luxury resorts in Antigua, with wellness classes and yoga to ease out the tension of the year, and daily evening entertainment to help you celebrate special occasions such as Christmas and New Year. Island wide, we recommend snorkelling, diving, and stand-up paddle boarding to make the most of the refreshing turquoise waters.
Winter months offer the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to make the most of a stay in St. Lucia, with less rainfall and more comfortable temperatures for maximum enjoyment. By choosing a winter trip, you can beat the heat without sacrificing the feeling of warm summer skin.
Here in St. Lucia, you can enjoy your best Valentine’s Day yet as you adventure to the island’s drive in Volcano, The Pitons. These two soaring giants are a world-famous UNESCO World Heritage site and make the perfect date for any thrill-seeking couples out there. Afterwards, discover the perfect way to unwind with your loved one by heading for a restorative bath in the famous Sulphur Springs.
For those searching for a New Year’s destination, St. Lucia offers activities which cater for a variety of visitors. From fireworks on the beach to late night parties, you can find a variety of events to make your search for winter sun that much more exciting.
If you’re looking for an all-inclusive stay, why not look at St. James’ Club Morgan Bay? Our gorgeous resort has a wide range of indulgent facilities, including a secluded beach, four pools, a spa and salon, plus a wide variety of water sports.
Finally, who can forget The Grenadines? A stunning chain of 32 islands, of which only nine are inhabited, there is plenty to enjoy over the winter no matter your age. From seeing land untouched by time with your very own eyes, to lazily lounging on a deserted beach, anyone can soak up the peace and quiet after a turbulent 2020.
Palm Island Beach, named after the hundreds of trees planted by former inhabitants, is a top destination for many visitors during the winter, with its utopian white sands and emerald waters filled with exotic wildlife. Visitors can also take advantage of the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere for a romantic Valentine’s Day date, or celebrate Christmas with the locals while being tucked away from the rest of the world.
