Antigua, the main island of Antigua & Barbuda, offers 280 square kilometers of stunning beaches, tropical ocean waters and quaint villages with an eclectic blend of history, culture and first class resorts. Explore underwater kingdoms, tour old naval ports where British influences still linger or take in the sunset from one of the island’s beachfront restaurants.
Hug the coastline and you’ll find a secluded beach at every turn, with world class dive sites lurking just offshore. History buffs can get their fill too; from the 17th century English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard National Park to old sugar plantations, there are plenty of cultural experiences lying in wait. The pace at which you explore it all, however, is up to you. Spend your day gazing out over the blue horizon from your resort’s infinity pool, don your snorkeling mask and breach the ocean surface or dig your heels into one of the countless white-sand beaches for an afternoon nap. And when it comes to sampling the flavours of the Caribbean, rest assured you’ll find excellent local restaurants dishing up the freshest ingredients from both land and sea.
Welcome to Antigua – the quintessential Caribbean island.
