Antigua may have an enchanting colonial past, with rugged cobblestone streets and historical ruins to explore. Yet, it’s the coast that’s by far the real attraction. There’s no better way of appreciating Antigua than from one of its 365 beaches and the best vantage point is at sea.
Rightly associated with sailing for its strong trade winds, snorkelling for its near-perfect coral reefs, and beaches for its quantity. The unpretentious island of Antigua is also home to some hidden gems. Pass the exquisite Georgian buildings along Nelson's Dockyard, take a picture postcard shot from Shirley Heights, see the mass of yachts bobbing around English Harbour and hire a boat to take you to the uninhabited Green Island. Enjoy dining on fresh local produce with a Creole twist, before partying the night away to live music at ‘Jump up’ each Sunday.
