Antigua attractions and activities

A renowned water sports paradise with stunning beaches – Antigua has so much to offer. Combined with its world class spas, fascinating colonial heritage and exotic Creole cuisine – little wonder that this charming island is so popular.

Postcard-perfect beaches provide an idyllic backdrop for relaxation in Antigua. While the island’s famed trade winds have made it a big player on the sailing circuit. A near unbroken coral reef provides ideal conditions for shallow diving and snorkelling. While inland, the chance to go whizzing through the rainforest on a zip line awaits the adventurous. Our luxurious All Inclusive hotels offer all the activities and spa pampering you could wish for. Not to mention an array of restaurants where you can sample everything from international dishes to mouth-watering local Creole cuisine.

The best way to explore Antigua is by hire car. Drive up to the old fort at Shirley Heights for breathtaking views across the beautiful English Harbour. Or venture out to see grand colonial architecture. Go on an exhilarating zip line adventure through rainforest treetops. Explore the coves, or feel the sea breeze in your hair while horse riding along the beach.

Water sports

Water sports action

Snorkel around Antigua’s magnificent coral reefs. Or try surfing around Half Moon Bay. The island’s famed sailing conditions (aided by strong trade winds) mean it not only hosts the prestigious Antigua Sailing Week each year, but also the annual Jolly Harbour Yacht Club Regatta every November.
