The Island Staff Picks

Palm Point's cool contemporary feel blends perfectly with Antiguan artisanal products, local art and the people. It is this personal touch that brings a little magic, unlike any other luxury villa on the island. This strong sense of place is demonstrated by the excellent team, many of whom have worked at Palm Point for many years. Here are some of their highlights and top picks for a vacation in Antigua.

Order the catch of the day from Riv, the local fisherman and barbeque it on the beach – it's unbeatable.

Sylvan the Gardener's Top Tip

Make a visit to the local market for the best, fresh fruit – it will blow your mind.

Rhoni the Housekeeper's Top Tip

Head to Shirley Heights on a Sunday night for the unmistakable sounds of a live steel band (and the rum punch!).

Tianne the Housekeeper's Top Tip

Antigua has 365 beaches – one for every day of the year. Try as many as you can to find your favourite and chill out.

Darren the Driver's Top Tip

My favourite dive spot has to be the wreck of The Andres. The merchant ship sank back in 1905 and makes for a fascinating dive.

Kevin the Boat Captain's Top Tip

I know a secret beach where you can cover yourself in the most luxurious, exfoliating mud before a soak in the sea – it's divine.

Gillian the Concierge's Top Tip

For an unforgettable experience, you must swim with the stingrays at Stingray City. They are so friendly, you can touch them and even feed them.

Ruthie the Chef's Top Tip
