For the ultimate sundowner, why not hire one of their day beds, draped in linens or take a dip in one of the two superb cliff-front plunge pools before returning to Pearns Bay House for a nightcap.

Catherine’s Café can be found along Antigua’s southern peninsula at stunning Pigeon Point Beach.

The beachfront venue offers classical French cuisine with Provence-style influences and local ingredients, capturing the essence of what dining ‘sur la plage’ is all about.

With beautiful views across the sea, the beautiful beachfront cafe Cecilia’s High Point is run by a former Swedish model (Cecilia) and her host of animals. An eclectic array of wooden chairs and comfy sofas are set out on the deck with easy access to the soft sand below.

Guests can chill in the sun with easy listening jazz, R&B, soul and Cafe del Mar playing in the background as they sip on something cool and refreshing.
The food is inspired by a whole host of European flavours from duck-leg confit, veal Milanese or fresh ravioli.

A former military lookout and gun battery, it’s easy to see why they converted this colonial building into the must-visit bar and cafe.
