In Antigua, the Art of the All-Inclusive Beach Vacation

It’s the perk of having your own peninsula: every day you can choose a different beach.

Because here on the St James’s Club and Villas’ 100-acre property in the southeastern corner of Antigua, it’s all about the water.

It’s about mornings swimming off the white sands of Coco’s Beach, then afternoons paddling the calm waves of Mamora Bay.

It’s about spending the day with Mamora Bay Divers, Antigua’s top diving operation, and experiencing one of the Caribbean’s great undiscovered scuba spots.

Or there’s kayaking, paddle boarding or even pedal boats; Mamora Bay is an endlessly serene corner of Antigua, with water that’s still enough for paddling, but with the breeze you need for a Hobie Cat.

A vacation here becomes a daily aquatic ritual, with every day a different adventure on the water.

And in the new age of travel, it’s everything travelers want: the natural environment, the joy of being outdoors; and, perhaps most importantly, privacy.

And that’s what you get on your own peninsula; St James’s really does feel more like it’s your own private club than just a resort; where each day you get to know your fellow guests — a group of active, energetic travelers seeking the authentic Caribbean.

The resort, part of the Elite Island Resorts collection, has another thing travelers want: a strong emphasis on health and safety, requiring all travelers 16 and up to be fully vaccinated.

And that’s true across Elite’s Caribbean portfolio, including its strong presence in Antigua with resorts like Hammock Cove, Galley Bay, Pineapple Beach Club and The Verandah.

And Elite has turned the beach vacation into something of art form.

Of course, there’s one more thing: it’s an all-inclusive, the concept that more and more travelers are seeking out, particularly in the Caribbean; that means all the convenience you want, the meals, the drinks, the waterfront dinners and afternoon tea, and even an on-site Cafe called Mamora Bay Coffee House, among other inclusions.

Yes, it’s your own private peninsula.

It all adds up to the quintessential island vacation, a break from cold winters, a portal to the Caribbean fantasy.

Isn’t that why we all come here in the first place?
