Step onto the white powder soft Caribbean sand directly from your luxury beachfront villa at Tamarind Hills. With both 3 and 4 bedroom villas configured across 3 levels, these villas provide spectacular views of the Caribbean ocean and dazzling sunsets from every level. For the most luxurious experience, we recommend our Barracuda 8 villa.

After a day of traveling, the last thing you want to worry about is grocery shopping. At Tamarind Hills, we have thought of everything. With our concierge services, we can arrange to have groceries delivered to your villa prior to your arrival, allowing you to arrive and immediately start enjoying the comfort of your Caribbean luxury villa without the worry of organizing food and drinks during your stay. Enjoy your first night of your quick Caribbean getaway enjoying a bbq dinner on your terrace as you watch the sunset over the ocean. 

Day 2  – Private Boat Charter

The best way to see the stunning turquoise Caribbean waters is on them! Charter a private yacht for the most exclusive and fun way to explore all that the exquisite Antigua has to offer.

Day 3 – Rainforest Zipline & Dinner at Dennis Beach Bar 

While Antigua is most famous for its beaches, the island has so much more to offer, such as the Fig Tree Drive rainforest. Located just 20 minutes from Tamarind Hills, the Antigua Rainforest Zipline tours are a great activity for the whole family to experience on your quick Caribbean getaway. Explore the tropical island beauty from above as you traverse bridges and ziplines over a gorge, viewing local flora and fauna above the treetops.  

After freshening up back at your Carribean luxury villas, this evening is the perfect time to check out one of our favorite local bars, Dennis Beach Bar. Located below the hill between Jolly beach and Ffryes beach, and boasting fantastic views of both, Dennis Beach bar is just a short walk from your Tamarind Hills villa along the soft white Caribbean shores. Enjoy a Caribbean Sunset cocktail at the beach bar while indulging in some of the amazing food on offer at this popular bar. And the best part, you do not need to worry about getting transportation back to Tamarind Hills as you can stroll home at your leisure back along the beach.

Once again, you can book your tour directly with Antigua Rainforest Zipline Tours, or get in contact with our concierge services who can make a booking on your behalf.

Day 4 – Ffryes Beach & Sheer Rocks

After a couple of action packed days exploring all that Antigua has to offer, today is a perfect day to spend relaxing in the sun before your quick Caribbean getaway comes to an end.

With rock pools embedded on the cliff edge, and access to food and beverages delivered straight to your exclusive sun bed, an afternoon spent watching the sunset over the Caribbean at Sheer Rocks is an opportunity not to be missed. 

On your way to Sheer Rocks, just an 11 minute drive from Tamarind Hills, you may like to dip your toes in the Ocean at Ffryes beach, a beach ideal for relaxed swimming and snorkeling in the calm turquoise waters amongst a backdrop of luscious green landscapes – a great opportunity to get some memorable holiday pictures before your quick Caribbean getaway is over.
