Antigua

 

According to Antigua's locals, this island paradise boasts 365 distinct beaches along its coastline of coves and natural harbors. Whether that's true or not, the island definitely has its share of idyllic white sand beaches and other natural beauty. A former British colony, Antigua also has a rich history, as it served as the British Royal Navy's eastern Caribbean headquarters during the 17th and 18th centuries. Famed Admiral Horatio Nelson was stationed there for a time, and Nelson's Dockyard and the Shirley Heights fortress overlooking and protecting it, are well-preserved reminders of the battles men fought over possessions. As night falls over the island, a very unique "whistling" sound from the local tree frogs combines with the waves lapping against the boat to make for a very peaceful night's rest.
