Antigua has a coastline that is made up of 365 beaches; one for each day of the year. The island is much-loved for these fine, white sand beaches and azure waters, and is also a haven for those seeking adventure on the water.
Smaller neighbour, Barbuda is one of the gems of the Caribbean; undeveloped with a natural purity and authenticity. With just a small number of hotels, and unspoilt natural beauty, the island is a haven for wildlife, with the Frigate Bird Sanctuary located in the island’s north-western lagoon.
Famous for its laid-back atmosphere, music is a fundamental part of the culture and all year round the sounds of Calypso and steel bands play out across Antigua, with the chance to see some of the best at Shirley Heights on Sunday evenings. The islands can be seen at their colourful and charismatic best during Carnival at the end of July; with the celebrations stretching for over a week.
