Surrounded by a nearly unbroken offshore reef protecting miles of sugar-white sands and hidden coves, this charming island promises a beach for every day of the year but offers so much more. Incredibly clear turquoise waters reveal an abundance of marine life and coral encrusted shipwrecks whilst Nelson’s Dockyard offers a fascinating glimpse of the island’s colonial heritage. Antigua is a picture-perfect Caribbean paradise that is ideal for tropical relaxation or exploration.
This independent nation was once a British colony and English influences can be seen from the crumbling sugar plantations and delightfully quaint English Harbour to locals playing cricket and hotels offering traditional afternoon tea. Despite these familiar touches, the wonderfully laid back vibe that is synonymous with the Caribbean pervades every corner of this relaxing isle.
