Antigua And Barbuda

Carlisle Bay

‘Secluded beach location with unbeatable watersports’

Located on the southern shore of Antigua overlooking the beach, Carlisle Bay is perfect place for activities and exploration. The suites all have ocean views from floor to ceiling windows and guests can choose from a balcony or terrace with day beds. The resort has water sport activities including snorkelling, paddle boarding and kayaking and there is a PADI diving centre. On dry land there is a fitness centre, tennis courts and spa. The resort can also arrange activities further afield including a Sting Ray City visit and horse riding. Six restaurants/bars are situated either poolside or beachside and serve a range of cuisines.

In Our Opinion

“Couples looking for that extra bit of seclusion must book the Bay Suite – situated at the quieter, adult only end of the beach these suite come with a private butler. For dinner head to the Jetty Grill and then settle for a sundowner at The Jetty Bar before you snuggle up beside the fire pit.”
