Antigua. The island officially known as Antigua & Barbuda, and one of the most picturesque Caribbean islands.
In Antigua you can do as much, or as little as you like. This unspoilt island is surrounded by stunning white sandy beaches and hidden coves. Nelson Dockyard is a popular starting point for exploring the heritage of the area. Afterward, why not sample some of Antigua’s national dishes – fungie and saltfish – at one of the quaint restaurants overlooking English Harbour. Or else, sip coffee in a beachside cafe, where sands are washed by crystal clear turquoise waters, and home to spectacular marine life.
If you plan to stay in a family resort, the velvet beaches and shores offer the ultimate playground for children to play and splash around. Prefer to get active? Then follow the natural trail up to Shirley Heights and enjoy the panoramic views of the Old English Harbour. You can also hit a few balls on the lush golf courses dotting the island.
Why not visit Antigua Sailing Week which takes part at the end of April, or experience the waves for yourself with a luxury yacht charter? Watersports fans will love the diving, snorkeling and kitesurfing opportunities available on the island.
