Romantic Locations in Antigua & Barbuda for Outdoor Lovers


1. Shirley Heights Lookout 

This iconic spot offers panoramic views of English Harbour and the surrounding islands. Sunset is the best time to propose here, as you can enjoy the breathtaking view and then pop the question as the sun sets.


2. Half Moon Bay

This stunning beach on Antigua's east coast is known for its pink sands and pristine beauty. Consider a sunrise proposal here for a magical moment. Explore the beach together with your partner, searching for seashells and treasures, which can be incorporated into your proposal or engagement ring presentation.


3. Nelson's Dockyard

Nelson's Dockyard is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a historic naval base dating back to the 18th century. Located in English Harbour, this historic site provides a charming backdrop for a proposal. Stroll through the cobblestone streets and gardens, and find a quiet spot with a view of the harbor to propose.


Suzanne was amazing! I utilized the layaway service and it was a breeze. Ring made its way to Texas and was even more gorgeous in person."

4. Darkwood Beach

This is another beautiful beach on Antigua's west coast. It's less crowded than some of the other beaches, making it a peaceful spot for a beachfront proposal.


5. Pigeon Point Beach

Located on Antigua's south coast, this beach offers a picturesque setting with calm waters and a view of Falmouth Harbour. A sunset proposal here can be truly romantic.


6. Jumby Bay Island

A private island resort accessible only by boat, Jumby Bay offers seclusion and luxury. You can arrange a private beachside dinner or a picnic under the stars for a romantic proposal.


7. Barbuda's Pink Sand Beach

Barbuda is known for its pristine Pink Sand Beach, where you can propose on the soft pink sands and enjoy the secluded beauty of the island.


Romantic Destinations in Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda are full of romantic beaches, bays and bridges. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, a spectacular beach, or at a beautiful bridge.


8. Valley Church Beach

This serene beach offers powdery sand and calm waters. Propose on the shore or during a romantic beachfront meal. Valley Church Beach faces west, which means it offers spectacular sunset views over the Caribbean Sea. Proposing during sunset can add an extra touch of magic and romance to your moment.



I've purchased two vintage rings from Suzanne over the past decade and my wife has loved both. Great service, communication and speedy delivery.”

9. Coco Point Beach

Coco Point Beach is renowned for its soft, pink-hued sand, which is both unique and visually striking. Proposing on these pink sands adds a touch of romance and rarity to your moment. The pristine, unspoiled beaches offer a combination of soft pink and white sands, complemented by the clear turquoise waters, creating a breathtaking backdrop for your proposal.


10. Devil's Bridge

Devil's Bridge is a natural limestone arch formation on the northeast coast of Antigua. It provides a dramatic and unique backdrop for a proposal, especially during high tide when the waves crash against the rocks.
