Our guide to visiting Antigua this Thanksgiving

Antigua, with its breathtaking beaches and Caribbean laid-back charm, is the perfect destination for a relaxed Thanksgiving. Here are our top five reasons why Antigua is the ultimate Thanksgiving destination.


Beautiful beaches
With 365 beaches, warm turquoise seas, mangroves and reefs that are home to a plethora of marine life, Antigua is the perfect destination for water lovers. With 153 km of unspoilt coastline, you will be able to spot an array of marine life from rays, turtles, dolphins and whales.

Pearns Bay House, with its direct beach access, offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and the surrounding landscapes. Wake up to the soothing sound of waves crashing on the beach just steps away from your bedroom, and watch mesmerising sunsets that paint the sky with shades of orange and pink. Enjoy the pristine sands and warm waters of the Caribbean whenever you please. Whether you want to take a leisurely stroll, swim, or use the complimentary snorkelling equipment or paddle boards, this exclusive access ensures that you can make the most of the marine life just offshore.

Lush scenery
If you fancy something a little more adventurous, the island also offers beautiful scenery from lush rainforests to majestic mountains. Why not take a guided tour of Signal Hill and enjoy the spectacular views or for something a little more thrilling, enjoy a zip line through the rainforest canopy.

If you don’t feel like venturing too far, Pearns Bay House offers lush landscaped gardens, filled to the brim with native species of flora and fauna from fragrant lemongrass to abundant fruit trees. Sit back amongst the greenery and enjoy the tranquil surroundings surrounding the villa.

Celebrate the holiday with a glass or two of rum!
The Caribbean is well known for its rum and Antigua is no exception! Why not take a tour of the Antigua Distillery and sample a tipple or two in the tasting room?

Our team of staff would be more than happy to continue the party back at Pearns Bay House and mix up a rum punch for you to enjoy whilst the sun sets! If you fancy an evening out, a visit to the famous Shirley Heights is a must. Enjoy panoramic views of English and Falmouth Harbour and if you visit on a Sunday evening you will be able to experience a night of Caribbean music and barbeque along with a drink or two as the sun sets!

Indulge in a feast of the freshest fish
Antigua offers an abundance of fresh fish and seafood. Our house chef likes to utilise as much local and seasonal produce as possible, creating bespoke menus that cater to your tastebuds and dietary requirements. If you fancy something a little different to turkey this year, then why not enjoy a sumptuous feast prepared by our skilled chef using fresh, locally sourced ingredients? Whether you dine on the terrace with a backdrop of the Caribbean or opt for an intimate indoor setting, Pearns Bay House offers the perfect ambience for a memorable Thanksgiving meal with family and friends.

Sail away
With the hurricane season finished, it’s the perfect time to take a yacht for a cruise around the island. With its trade winds and not one, but two harbours, Antigua is one of the best islands to experience sailing in the Caribbean and in our opinion, there is no better way to experience the island than from just offshore.

Our house director is more than happy to organise the charter of a vessel for your party with both bareboat or crewed charters available.

For those seeking luxury, tranquillity, and breathtaking natural beauty, there really is no better place for a restful and relaxing Thanksgiving break away. Pearns Bay House, with its panoramic location, direct beach access, infinity pool, and dedicated team of staff service, provides a luxurious villa and an unforgettable holiday experience.
