Antigua

Capital - St. John's

Antigua’s beaches are amongst the best in the Caribbean and there are 365 of them – one for every day of the year! With a vast selection of hotels, plenty of culture and history, not to mention watersports for every taste, Antigua is bound to have a holiday to suit everyone.
And in case you run out of choices, there’s always its sister island Barbuda, known for its seclusion and its pink and white sand beaches.

But Antigua is more than just a beach destination. It has many attractions, such as historic Shirley Heights, a military lookout with amazing views over Nelson’s Dockyard, the only working Georgian Dockyard in the world; as well as national parks with billowing blowholes such as Devil’s Bridge and steamy rainforests.  St John’s, the capital has a buzzing Saturday market.

British Airways have daily direct flights to Antigua, and Virgin fly direct on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Special offers are often available.

Why Antigua?

“Antigua was the first Caribbean island I visited and, as such, it will always have a place in my heart … it’s where my love affair with the Caribbean began!” – Karen Williams, co-founder of The Caribbeanist

The Caribbeanist’s Antigua Top 5

1. No trip to Antigua is complete without a visit to Shirley Heights, a restored military lookout and gun battery. The view is spectacular. A good time to go is on Sundays when they throw their famous Sunday afternoon/evening parties.

2. A day trip to Barbuda, Antigua’s sister island, is well worth the effort. Fringed with beautiful pink sand beaches, Barbuda lies about 30 miles to the north and is largely undeveloped and sparsely populated.

3. Visit English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Formally Britain’s main naval base in the northeastern Caribbean, it is exceptionally atmospheric, has an impressive museum (with an excellent children’s section), a restaurant, bar and a couple of hotels.

4. If you happen to be on the island during the cricket season (January to July), you may want to see a game at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. It’s one of the most exciting places in the world to watch a cricket match; the local crowd are extremely devoted, and the stadium’s facilities are exceptional.

5. There are far too many beaches to be able to visit them all, but some of the most spectacular are Half Moon Bay, Dickenson Bay, Darkwood Beach, Pigeon Point Beach and Ffryes Bay.
