Antigua

With a beach for every day of the year, Antigua is a sunny white sand island with picture-perfect seascapes and a tranquil refined style.

The links to British colonial history are apparent here, from Nelson’s Dockyard with its impressive sailing ships, to handsome plantation houses, sugar mills and quaint churches. Centrally located within the Caribbean, this island offers an array of activities that allow you to explore the wondrous landscape. Watersports abound, from catamaran and sailing trips to the rich yachting scene, ship wrecks for keen scuba divers and fantastic snorkelling opportunities. On land, visit the rainforest, embark on the scenic Fig Tree Drive or take a kayaking trip through the magical mangroves. The varied local cuisine is well worth sampling: mouth-watering Creole seafood; fungi and pepperpot, a delicious stew; and the freshest indigenous fruits including mangoes, papayas and pineapples. From the world-famous yacht regattas, charter yacht shows and Antigua Sailing Week in April to the weekly Sunday barbecue party at Shirley Heights and flamboyant carnivals of July and August, Antigua is vibrant, buzzing and a delight to all the senses.
