We might be a bit biased, but "the beach is just the beginning..." Endless clear blue seas, stunning sunrises, and glorious sunsets, coupled with a plethora of private villas, 268 is unbelievably breathtaking and makes the ideal destination for the ultimate socially distanced getaway!

Dramatically set against a beautiful backdrop, our tropical paradise boasts an exclusive collection of stand-alone cottages and secluded villas for luxury lovers and adventure seekers alike. Some of our properties feature a private pool, a patio, a boat pier, and even a beach pathway for added seclusion during your vacation or staycation.

With social distancing, vaccinated travelers, and other safety protocols the new vacation norm, we have agents at hand to help handpick holiday havens in safe, secluded, and serene surroundings for even the most discerning guests. Our twin islands offer the perfect retreat for some much-deserved rest, relaxation, and to really recharge those batteries.

If you are looking for a holiday haven that stands the test of time; to truly unwind and relax visit after visit, then look no further than Antigua and Barbuda ⁠— wonderfully private villas. And, for the most up-to-date entry requirements and on-island protocols, visit here.
WHAT'S HOT THIS WEEK
