Grand Pineapple Antigua

Grand Pineapple Antigua

Just a quick jump down the line of the British Virgin Islands lies the Gem of the Caribbean, Antigua.  Otherwise known for the fact it has 365 beaches, one for each day of the year.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend months there, but for my three nights, I was quickly impressed!  

My first stop was Grand Pineapple Antigua, the easy slice of paradise.  We were greeted by an amazingly friendly and hospitable management team who quickly made sure we were comfortable by offering us the traditional lemongrass infused washcloth. After freshening up, we were off to see this resort and all it offered.  The different rooms were all so unique in their own way.  Some were close to the beach while others offered easy accessibility and still others boasted breath taking views of the electric turquoise ocean!  The beach was like sugar and white like snow. And for sissies like myself, I even dared to enter the ocean because of it's crystal clear waters!  They told me that the ocean is too warm for sharks but jelly fish can be common.  I figured every rose has it's thorn, so I took my chances! For those who want to sail, snorkel or even take out a hobie cat, this is the place to do it.  The water is mostly like glass and I could see why people flock from all over the world to take it all in.

For lunch we hiked up to the legendary Miss Mary's Outhouse and had a traditional BBQ lunch of ribs and chicken, but with a Caribbean twist! Here we got to see mongoose, birds, cats and the variety of trinkets left behind by past guests.  There were hats,  flags, license plates, flip flops and even handmade things from those who forgot to bring something from home. Regrettably, the famous Miss Mary wasn't there (I was told she's off Fridays and Saturdays) so I guess I will have to go back and try it again!
