Powder-soft sand and reef protected waters – an Antigua holiday 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.
Although famous for Antigua sailing week, many other water sports are available for the energetic visitor on their holiday to Antigua. 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.
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 Antigua travel 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 holiday in Antigua is to laze aboard a catamaran as you go in search of the secluded beaches for which Antigua is famed.
