Powder-soft sand and reef protected waters – a holiday in Antigua is a beach-lover’s fantasy - with a beach for every day of the year. That’s not the only pre-requisite for the ideal Caribbean beach holiday, of course. It is the largest of the English speaking Leeward Islands and also the sunniest destination in the Eastern Caribbean. The island has gentle, rolling landscapes and a winding coastline.
Barbuda, the sister island, is a short plane or boat ride away and has miles of beautiful, empty, powder-soft beaches – just perfect for a getaway-from-it-all Caribbean holiday. And we really mean away from it all!
You could be forgiven for believing that exploring Antigua would offer no particular challenge. But Antigua’s roads are not well-signposted, to say the least. Our Caribbean specialists will tell you that fun as it is to drive through the rainforest, idle in mango and pineapple groves and cruise past the abandoned sugar-cane windmills that dot the island, be prepared for the odd diversion and inevitable wrong turning. An easier option for your Antigua holiday is to laze aboard a catamaran as you go in search of the secluded beaches for which Antigua is famed.
Although famous for Antigua sailing week, many other water sports are available and for the energetic visitor on an Antigua holiday. There are scenic hiking trails, several golf courses and tennis facilities. We think that with a reputation for good cuisine in its private restaurants and top class hotels, and high standards of hospitality teamed with plenty of Caribbean charm, Antigua has something to please just about everyone.
