You won’t find a beach at the posh Sugar Ridge hotel located in the hills above Jolly Harbour, Antigua, a fact that actually makes the property ideal for uncommon beach lovers. There are, after all, 365 beaches to discover all around Antigua. Opting for a hotel that stretches along the sea likely means you’ll stick and stay on the shores closest to your room, leaving you sadly unaware of the island’s many other beach treasures.
Not so at Sugar Ridge. Even if you don’t want to rent a car to really get out an explore, the property offers a free shuttle to several nearby beaches. Or, simply walk a few minutes down from your lofty Sugar Ridge perch, cross the street into Jolly Harbour, and get your tan on in the South Beach sands pictured above.
