Explore the Beauty of Antigua

Located at the heart of the Leeward Islands in the northern Caribbean, Antigua is ringed with incredible beaches. Dominated by British and West African culture with Portuguese influences, Antigua has a distinctive Mediterranean feel. If you can pull yourself away from the sublime white sand and sparkling sea, you’ll find the island is overflowing with history and intrigue. Shirley Heights, a restored military lookout offers spectacular views and the cultural heritage site, Nelson’s Dockyard, hosts Antigua Sailing Week and other yachting events.

Antigua is a lovely modern vision of the Caribbean; stunning beaches, warm smiles and excellent year-round weather.

Located north of St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean, it is famous throughout the region for the handsome English Harbour and the fun-loving Sundays of Shirley Heights. We love Antigua for its charm and versatility with fine sandy beaches backing onto stretches of open greenery and wonky verdant hills.

It is a true haven for sun-seekers and thrill-seekers alike, with a fantastic range of accommodation options; thanks to the abundance of well-preserved coral, Antigua holidays are a great choice if you’re a fan of scuba diving or snorkelling.

The culture is blessed with traditional Caribbean friendliness, drawing on influences from a colonial past that saw French, Spanish and predominantly British rule. There’s a lingering passion for everything English, mostly shown through a love of cricket and a reserved charm.

Nevertheless, Antigua has been an independent nation for more than 30 years and has more than established its own customs and traditions.
