This beach's turquoise blue water boasts some of the island's best surfing waves, which can make it a rough spot for swimmers. When nighttime rolls around, plan an outing to Galley Bay to watch turtles nest on the beach.  Geoff Howes Antigua & Barbuda Tourist Office

Hiking from Nelson's Dockyard to Shirley Heights takes about one hour. At 492 feet above sea level, Shirley Heights is one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset. A barbecue with live Caribbean music is held at the peak on Sunday evenings. Z dead Flickr

Travelers like to walk across this natural wonder amouting from years of reef formation and incessant waves. Many stop at this limestone arch in eastern Antigua to take pictures and brave the blast from one of the natural blowholes.  Z dead Flickr

Nelson's Dockyard has restaurants, cafés and shops aplenty. A short presentation at the Dow's Hill Interpretation Center will fill you in on the history of both the dockyard and the island. Caitlinator Flickr

This cathedral was orginally founded in 1681 and has since sustained quite a few earthquakes. The facade of the church makes for a worthwhile stop, especially for those already headed to St. John's Saturday Morning Market. UKWiki Wikimedia

Betty's Hope, built in 1674, was the first sugar plantation on the island of Anitgua. The small museum in the cotton house storeroom on site enlightens visitors with stories of the plantation's history. From here you can enjoy a view of Pares Village. Ragingwhitebuffalo Wikimedia

This rock formation can only be reached by boat, but once you arrive, walk through its natural cave and tunnel. A warm pool in the middle of the cave is ideal for a quick dip, and surrounding spots for snorkeling help to complete a worthwhile excursion.  MichaelUtech iStockphoto.com

With fewer crowds, Half Moon Bay is the right seaside spot for those looking for off-the-beaten-path relaxation on soft white sand. Sizeable waves make this beach surfer-friendly too. Squish_E Flickr

Just south of Jolly Harbour's buzz and bustle, Valley Church Beach is a serene waterside retreat for travelers prone to lolling in the sun. Those visiting for the day will appreciate the on-site facilities and the beach bar serving up Caribbean fare and tropical drinks. Lindasj22 Shutterstock.com

One of the most accessible and active beaches on Antigua, Dickenson Bay has something for everyone. Its location only 15 minutes from the cruise port makes Dickenson Bay a popular beach with chairs and umbrellas available to rent. Squish_E Flickr
