Galley Bay Antigua
The award winning Galley Bay Antigua is an adults-only (16+), all-inclusive retreat, perfect for the discerning traveler seeking to visit St. Johns. Situated in a secluded setting, amidst forty acres of tropical gardens and between a bird sanctuary, lagoon and pristine, sugar-white beach, Galley Bay Antigua is bathed in beauty. Thatch, bamboo and terracotta establish an ambiance of refined rusticity in the public areas, while a picturesque wooden deck ensures maximum exposure to the ocean views.
