Overview



If you think Antigua is just about its white sandy beaches and azure sea then think again. Located in the Caribbean Sea, this is an island that allows you to pick just what sort of holiday you want. It provides a place of reprieve for both high energy travellers and laid back explorers.

Beach bums can pass days lying beneath the warm Antiguan sun, feeling the sand between their toes as they stroll to the beach bar for tropical cocktails. Water lovers can enjoy hours exploring the vibrant and exciting water. There's snorkelling, diving and pretty much every other water sports activity under the sun.

Sightseers can discover the island's past and present with trips to St John's Cathedral Church, Shirley Height Fort and the Montpelier Sugar Factory to name a few. Food lovers can treat their taste buds by sampling Antigua's local delicacies. Don't miss the black pineapple, breadfruit and pepperpot, a spicy beef and vegetable stew.

There's nothing your children can't enjoy with you, expect perhaps a rum based cocktail. They will love the wide open spaces, endless stretches of beach and the waters full of exciting sea life.

And if all that isn't enough, there's always the tropical climate and incredible natural vistas everywhere you turn. If you are looking for a holiday which offers you plenty of options, warm weather and luxury resorts such as Blue Waters, then Antigua is the Caribbean island for you.

Often referred to as the heart of the Caribbean, the twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda has much to offer...from the miles of uninterrupted pink sand beaches in Barbuda to the popular Fig Tree Drive and Rainforest Canopy Tour in Antigua.

Antigua enjoys year round warm weather with day time temperatures annually averaging between 73-87 F while evenings are a comfortable 65-70F and can be cooler still during the months of December to April (and a light jumper may be advisable to keep you warm in the cooler night time breezes!). Antigua is one of the driest and sunniest islands in the Caribbean with low humidity.

Antigua has always been an island rich in culture, where the African and British influences shine through in a whole variety of places. The African influence is recognisable all over the island from the music, such as Calypso and Soca, to everyday aspects such as the language. English is the official language, however many of the locals speak Antiguan Creole which is derived from both the British and African language.
