The Ultimate All-Inclusive Beach Resort in Antigua
It’s a quarter-mile long, pearl-white and shimmering turquoise, one of the most stunning strands of sand you’ll find in the Caribbean: Long Bay in Antigua.
It’s the sort of beach that calls us all to the Caribbean, a place for days filled with bobbing in the sea and sailing the trade winds and hammocks rocking under palm trees.
It’s also home to one of the Caribbean’s ultimate beach resorts: the Pineapple Beach Club.
This adults-only, all-inclusive, 180-room beach resort is a place that has turned the beach vacation into an art form, an essential Antigua resort, where the warmth of the people transcends the mercury reading, where the food is authentic and bold (especially at the Outhouse barbecue spot) and the overarching emphasis is on good old-fashioned chilling out.
It’s all about the water, all about the beach, whether you’re paddleboarding or spending the day on a Hobie, or cooling down in one of the three pools (including an ocean-view infinity-edge stunner).
But this 30-acre resort has something for every kind of traveler, every sought-after experience: there’s the lovely Tranquility Body and Soul Spa; one of the Caribbean’s most impressive pickleball court systems; a great cafe and espresso shop; a fitness center; billiards; and even little touches like afternoon tea.
The rooms are crisp and comfortable, filled with bright artwork and views of Antigua, a mix of garden, pool terrace, waterfront, ocean-view and beachfront rooms, including the spectacular Chairman’s Suite.
But it all comes back to the sand, where you’ll be pulled, magnetically, irresistibly, to Long Bay, where that blue-and-white song keeps calling, every day, endlessly, between the rise and fall of the sun.
Because when you find a beach this good, and that perfect chair right under the palms, you won’t want to be anywhere else.
