Antigua

Laid back cool

One of the Leeward islands in the Lesser Antilles, Antigua is amongst the friendliest islands in the Caribbean. Its ragged coastline reveals secret coves and glamorous harbours, protected by historic forts, and some of our favourite lunch spots. Inland, colourful villages dot the gentle undulating slopes, and the entire island is infused with a relaxed air. Thanks to Nelson, there’s a very English feel to Antigua and its warm, sunny, constant climate and breezes have continued to bring travelers to its shores ever since. It’s one of the best islands in the Caribbean for sailing, and has no shortage of magnificent dive sites. Don’t miss a sundowner on Shirley Heights, looking out over English Harbour and across to Montserrat, with the colourful sound of a steel band as your backdrop. Or an evening spent surfing at Half Moon Bay.

Why Visit?

It is the epitome of paradise – sugary sandy beaches, coral reefs, aquamarine waters, sunshine and a warm, calm Caribbean sea.

There is a beach for every day of the year – that is 365 beautiful beaches!

The climate – Antigua lies close to the equator meaning there is hardly any seasonal variations, low average rainfall and relatively lower humidity levels. That means its weather and climate is one of the most admired in the Caribbean.

Incredible food – from beachside shacks to water edge restaurants serving up authentic Caribbean food as well as some of the best seafood you will ever taste.

The experiences and activities – Choose an adventure packed-trip or a laid back, relaxing holiday. You can: sail around Antigua in a day, go hiking, biking, horseriding, or zip-lining through the Antigua rainforest, snorkelling, watersports galore, go bird watching and a visit to Devil’s Bridge is a must.

The music – take a trip to Shirley Heights for their Sunset Party. Here the rum flows, the BBQ sizzles and there is steel drum and reggae.

It is rich in history – visit Nelson’s Dockyard National Park a UNESCO-listed World Heritage site to take you back to Antigua’s navl past. Or head to Fort George, Fort Charlotte, Dow’s Hill, Shirely Heights and many more historical sites on this beautiful island.

Don’t forget Barbuda – the sister island to Antigua, just a 2 hour ferry ride away. It was badly affected by hurricane Irma in 2017. It may be one of the best kept ecological secrets in the West Indies, with rugged scenery, beautiful beaches, (one at least 12 miles long), lagoons and abundant wildlife.
