Antigua resorts provide a setting for Caribbean getaways, a place to enjoy the beautiful weather, fantastic beaches, and a chance to truly relax. Often all inclusive, resorts also are a great way to ensure your vacations are trouble free and fully paid for up front, and that you have access to every activity on your island getaway that you could ever possibly hope for. No matter which of the beaches you choose to visit, you'll enjoy the same wonderful weather and sunny days. Daytime temperatures settle between 80 and 85 degrees and more than 300 days of the year are bright and sunny.
