If you're tired of the mainstream Caribbean destination and searching for new locations, Antigua is for you. This paradise is located southeast of the British Virgin Islands with 365 beaches. It became famous when it was rumored to be the potential location for Prince Harry's royal nuptial. Here is why Antigua is a must-visit this holiday for your Caribbean vacation.

Swimming Location. With its numerous beaches, Metro has suggested the must-see destinations. One of which is the Pigeon Beach near Nelson's Dockyard. A must try is the Coconut Crush at the Bumpkins.

Another is the Jolly Beach with white sands perfect for building sandcastles. Turner's Beach is one of the most hectic since it is the top spot for cruise ship tours. It is ideal for cocktails along the beach with the best view of the sunset.

Food Trip. The island also has a wide array of beach bars but here are some of the best food spots. Papa Zouk's has the biggest collection of rum in Antigua which is why their rum is equally appealing as their fish plate. A must try is there red snapper fish paired with a glass of Ti' punch.

Sheer Rocks enters the list with its amazing view and good food but their acclaimed cocktail menu shouldn't be missed as well. Lastly, the Trappas and Cloggy's are the best when you're in the English Harbour.

Activities. According to Lonely Planet, a 90-minute walk in Antigua's rainforest located in the Rendezvous Bay can surely give you a blissful solitude. You should also consider going to the Frigate Bird Sanctuary and witness the mating rituals of the world's largest colonies of frigate birds. Night life in Shirley Heights is a must-visit with sunset parties and live music. If you want to see the picturesque pink and white sand beaches, hop on a ferry and visit Barbuda.

Antigua is a rising Caribbean destination that should be part of your itinerary before it becomes too crowded. It offers a variety of activities that would make your holiday memorable.
