At just 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, it's safe to say that Antigua is a little slice of heaven floating in the Caribbean Sea. A luxury destination that's an amazing all-rounder, Antigua has beaches in abundance, warm waters that are perfect for paddling, and seemingly endless opportunities for inland adventures.
Despite its size, there's a resort for every holidaymaker on the island. Postcard-perfect Long Bay is the place for romantic escapes, whereas Dickenson Bay is a little livelier, with the sound of steel drums in the air and revellers kicking off their shoes to dance on the beach!
Whichever hotel and resort you choose, Antigua's coastline is well worth further exploration. In fact, you'll find a staggering 365 beaches just waiting to be discovered, each one appearing more pristine than the last - pretty impressive for such a tiny island! Equally impressive are the turquoise waters that provide a playground for holidaymakers. Swim, surf, sail or snorkel - there's no end of activities to help you make the most of your amazing position on the edge of the clear Caribbean. The lucky ones travelling between March and November might also see the beautiful sea turtles that come to the island to nest.
If inland adventures that float your boat, the lush rainforest beckons. Climb the thick, green canopy for aerial explorations or take a hiking tour to learn what natural wonders the island keeps hidden at its heart.
One of Antigua's most famous attractions is the beautiful Nelson's Dockyard, a Georgian marina and cultural heritage site that you'll find in the English Harbour area. This national park is a step back in time for those wanting to learn some of the history of the island, and a fantastic place to eat and drink for those who just want to enjoy the quaint surroundings. Don't forget to try the national dish of fungie (similar to polenta), or lobster caught fresh in the waters of sister island Barbuda. Of course, it'd be rude not to sample the award winning English Harbour rum!
If you're keen on taking a boat ride, or even setting sail yourself, Antigua's marina will curb your cravings to get out to deep waters. You could even take a trip to the untouched island of Barbuda for a real desert island experience. An island that makes holiday dreams come true, Antigua is a destination that you'll never regret. Book your stay on this paradise island for magical memories that will last a lifetime.
Year round sunshine is a dead cert in Antigua, but the cooling trade winds that blow through the island stop it from becoming oppressively hot and make the climate a more family friendly prospect for those wanting to travel with children. As with all Caribbean islands, December to May are the prime months, but the 'winter' months of June to November can be just as pleasant. Don't let the chance of showers put you off - they usually come in short bursts and can be a quite refreshing!
