This is an example itinerary suggested by the BeBlue skippers who are experts in the navigation area. The route can be planned on the needs of the group before departure or during navigation.
Day 1: Check-in
Embarkation will begin in the late afternoon at the Jolly Harbour Marina on the south coast of the island of Antigua.
In the morning we set sail in the direction of Sirley Heights, a small town surrounded by greenery on the south coast of the island. It has one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Antigua, ideal for a walk in the unspoilt nature; alternatively, you can try the typical Caribbean street food that can be found in the stalls scattered around the streets of the town, on the beach or even in the middle of the woods. Let's not forget its beautiful beaches, a paradise for lovers of relaxation and tranquillity.
We weigh anchor and sail to the uninhabited Green Island, a small island located in the east of Antigua. Characterised by a great variety of flora and fauna, it is a paradise for snorkelling enthusiasts. There are numerous dive spots where you can discover the great variety of marine animals that inhabit those waters or the beautiful coral reef, home to many fish. There is the possibility in some places, to rent jet skis and make the complete tour of the island or to reach bays where you cannot arrive by land.
Next stop on our trip is the island of Great Bird, located in the north of Antigua. The main attraction of this island are the numerous birds that live in the trees. We recommend a tour among the trees to discover the various types of birds, from the most classic to the rarest. This island is also famous for its beaches, in particular the pink beach, one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean that welcomes a lot of tourists; its special feature is its completely pink sand and its crystal-clear water, a true paradise on earth.
We sail to the north-western part of the island and visit Deep Bay, a beach characterised by a quiet and peaceful climate, due to the fact that it is still little known from the tourist point of view. Completely immersed in nature, you can go for walks inland amidst the tall palm trees that surround the entire coastline, or you can relax on the beach and take walks along the shore with fish swimming by. The island offers the possibility of snorkelling to see the famous wreck of a French ship that sank about 100 years ago and discover all the secrets and curiosities of its sinking.
Today you will see some of the most renowned beaches in the Caribbean. After breakfast, you can head to the famous Galley Beach, which, with its white sands and crystal-clear turquoise waters with colourful seabed thanks to the ever-present coral reef, is a destination that attracts many divers. Alternatively, you can head to the slightly more distant Hawksbil Beach on the Five Islands peninsula. This long strip of white beach is arguably Antigua's most famous beach, in a wild and natural stretch of coastline, ideal for swimming and snorkelling among the Caribbean reefs. In the afternoon, you can head to Fyres Beach: a beach of fine white sand, in a completely wild environment far from population centres where there are just a couple of bars in the vicinity, is certainly ideal for those seeking relaxation.
The last stop on our wonderful journey of discovery around the island of Antigua is the beach at Carlistle Bay. This is one of the most luxurious bays in the Caribbean, thanks to the presence of the luxury resort that offers tourists the possibility to dine at the restaurant and enjoy fine cuisine. The beach also offers the possibility of taking a kayak ride and admiring the island from the sea, or relaxing on the beach and sipping a refreshing drink.
