I’m a huge fan of the safe, placid island of Antigua and its uncrowded beaches. The people—from the sailing partiers of Falmouth Harbor in the south to the shopkeepers of St. Johns on the north end—are warm and welcoming, as long as you remember to drive on the left side of the road. The Coconut Beach Club offers 59 wooden, open Caribbean-style cottages perched above the ocean, where you can watch the waves fall onto the long, white beach from the hammock or Adirondack chairs on your balcony. Rates start at $375 a night.
