Antigua Holidays

A beach in Antigua

Home to 365 beaches – one for every day of the year – Antigua is a sun lover’s dream. Beyond the powdery white sands and swaying palm trees lies an intriguing destination with a rich history. There’s a distinct English charm to this delightful Caribbean island, with its winding roads and neat villages. Explore the historic district of English Harbour, or shop for souvenirs in St John’s. Every Sunday at sunset, Shirley Heights plays host to a mouth-watering barbecue, accompanied by the pulsating sounds of steel drums.
