Curtain Bluff, Antigua

Located on the southern tip of Antigua in the Leeward Islands, Curtain Bluff offers stunning scenery and abundant on-the-water activities. The new spa has private balconies with ocean views, and recently refurbished rooms keep this spot fresh but still familiar to the families who have been coming back to vacation here for almost 50 years.

Play All Day: To satisfy competitive spirits, get to the squash and bocce court, putting green, tennis facilities, or half basketball court. Make time for scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and a twice-daily boat ride for reef snorkeling. Two beaches, a swimming pool, and bar area with chaise lounges and thatched umbrellas are available for relaxing. Watch live entertainment at night.

Explore: Nearby, Nelson’s Dockyard has been restored since its days as a British naval base and now features shops, museums, and restaurants in original 18th-century buildings. Climb the fort’s ramparts for more great views. On Sundays, head up to Shirley Heights Lookout for reggae music.

Family photo op: Chelle Hulford, owner of Curtain Bluff, welcomes family photos on her balcony with the island of Montserrat, home to the active Soufrière Hills volcano, in the background.
