The Copper and Lumber hotel in Nelson’s Dockyard.

Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua One of the newest UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Caribbean, this exquisitely preserved 18th-century dockyard was once the stomping ground of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson — and it’s become a full-fledged destination in its own right. Set on a beautiful historic marina, it’s home to several charming boutique hotels: the Copper and Lumber and the Admiral’s Inn, with the Inn at English Harbour across the water on lovely Pigeon Point Beach. It’s a place where you can travel in time, have a glass of rum with history and still manage to laze around on the sand.
