Head to the north-west of Antigua for some of the island’s best beaches. Dickenson Bay offers an array of bars, restaurants and water sports. While Runaway Beach boasts white sands stretching as far as the eye can see. Remote Green Island, to the east, is the perfect spot for a romantic picnic. While Half Moon Bay, with its pink-hued sands, is excellent for surfing.
A taste of Antigua
Top-notch Caribbean dining with a French twist, and a dramatic clifftop location has made The Cove Suites at Blue Waters a celebrated dining spot. Or drink in the sensational sunset over dinner at Carmichael’s, Sugar Ridge. You’ll find no shortage of places to sample traditional Creole cuisine, at Jolly Harbour Marina. Or head to Nelson’s Dockyard for a variety of eateries to suit all tastes.
Explore the island
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 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.
