Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known
Antigua, the hidden gem of the Caribbean
Antigua and Barbuda, is a dual-island nation located in the Leeward Islands in the West Indies. It is part of the commonwealth so the first language is English. It consists of two inhabited main islands; Antigua and Barbuda, a number of smaller islands and also the uninhabited island of Redonda.
Antigua, although larger and with a far more developed infrastructure than it’s beautiful little sister island of Barbuda, it is still only 108 square miles, which means that you can drive from one side to the other in around an hour and sail around the whole island in just an afternoon.
Antigua famously boasts 365 beaches; one for every day of the year, and with the crystal clear turquoise oceans combined with the pristine white sandy beaches, and the laid back atmosphere provided by the friendly locals, Antigua is as close to paradise as you’re going to get.
There is a vibrant music scene and alfresco dining opportunities with a wide variety of culinary experiences including an abundance of fresh seafood, Caribbean spiced BBQ bursting with flavour and heat and the deliciously sweet Antiguan Black Pineapple being just a few of their specialities.
Enjoy stunning views from the highest points on the island with hikes up to Mount Obama, and Signal Mountain, or take that view with a side of gastronomy and dine at Shirley heights, which boasts one of the best views on the island, especially at sunset.
If you are looking for adventure, it comes by way of land, air and sea with helicopter trips, ziplines through the rainforest, adrenalin filled off-road romps across the island, and tours of the stunning coastlines by sail boat, reef rider, jet-ski, catamaran or yacht, to name just a few.
Antigua plays host to a variety of food festival and sports events most famous being Sailing Week, where yachts from all over the world arrive in English and Falmouth Harbours to participate in one of the most prestigious yacht racing events not just in the Caribbean but worldwide. Antigua’s Carnival, a vibrant fusion of both Antigua’s traditional and modern culture, packed with music events, colourful costumes and wild parties is another celebration not to be missed.
If you want to explore further, trips to Antigua’s sister island of Barbuda, or one of the islands which share Antigua and Barbuda’s maritime borders, Saint Kitts, Montserrat, Anguilla, Nevis and Saint Barthelemy, can be arranged with ease.
