Antigua

14 miles long and 11 miles wide, Antigua is the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands. Fringed by 365 beaches, there is hardly a hotel on the island that does not enjoy a stunning oceanfront location and Antigua’s close historical links with Britain have left a legacy of interesting places to visit.

The British Connection

The British Connection

Antigua’s close historical links with Britain are highlighted at English Harbour, its focal point being Nelson’s Dockyard, a base developed for the British Navy by Horatio Nelson in the late 18th Century. During this time, Clarence House was built for the future King William IV and, nowadays the residence of Antigua’s governor general, it remains open for public tours.
Explore Antigua

Explore Antigua

A journey along Fig Tree Drive will showcase former sugar mills bearing testament to the days when Antigua’s sugar industry flourished and will pass through rainforest rich in mangoes, pineapples and banana trees. Meanwhile, the capital of St John’s is well worth a visit, with its colourful shops around Redcliffe Quay, the towering Anglican Cathedral and on a Saturday, a particularly lively local market.
Relax in Antigua

Relax in Antigua

Antigua’s many beaches – the islanders claim one for every day of the year – afford the sun worshipper countless expanses of secluded, powdery sands. Offshore, an almost unbroken wall of coral reef invites snorkelers to view the myriad marine life below and on Sunday evenings, atop Shirley Heights, kick back to the gentle strains of steel bands whilst sampling local cuisine and fine island rum.

SEASONAL EVENTS

Antigua Sailing Week takes place during the last week of April. Over one thousand competitors and up to 200 yachts from all around the world adorn Nelson’s Dockyard and English Harbour for what is one of the world’s foremost regattas.
