Antigua is located in the heart of the Caribbean and is one of the largest Leeward islands. Thanks to the excellent weather conditions and constant trade winds, sailing is a popular pastime in Antigua.
Visitors to Antigua can take part in a vast range of water sports, mostly in calm and protected waters, while the thriving coral reefs offer excellent scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities. The island is a fantastic destination for family holidays thanks to attractions including Stingray City where visitors can swim with stingrays and tropical fish, rainforest tours with ziplines, and excursions to nearby Barbuda.

Antigua also offers plenty of history and culture. A tour of the island offers a unique insight into the culture, customs and courtesy of the local people. With an extensive Naval history, we recommend a visit to Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour to step back in time. The markets are constantly busy, the houses brightly decorated and cricket is played wherever flat ground can be found - Viv Richards is their most famous sportsman.
Barbuda is the other island which makes up the nation of Antigua and Barbuda, a small and undeveloped island with just one real town. Barbuda is bordered by deserted pink sand beaches and offers a natural habitat for Frigate birds, allowing visitors to relax in picturesque surroundings and get off the beaten track. Many people choose to take a day trip from Antigua to Barbuda by ferry, but it is worth planning ahead and travelling by air instead – this would be a much quicker alternative and doesn’t cost much more.
Antigua and Barbuda can easily be visited alongside other islands as part of an island hopping holiday - click here to find out more about Jo and Mark's recent trip which combined Antigua and Barbuda with Barbados.
