Antigua

Low-lying and volcanic in origin, Antigua, in the Caribbean sea boasts gorgeous beaches and great sailing opportunities with the well-known annual regatta each spring. As well enjoying the Caribbean climate, visitors can explore the 18th Century Great Fort George, a key part of the Antigua’s history.

Low-lying and volcanic in origin, Antigua forms part of the Leeward Islands group in the northeast Caribbean. As well as boasting gorgeous beaches, this beautiful island is a good choice for those who like to feel the stamp of history around them. The 18th Century Great Fort George forms a striking part of the island’s identity, a relic of its colonial British heritage, and there is also Nelson’s Dockyard, a superbly restored British naval base. Antigua is well known for yachting and sailing, particularly of the racing variety, where the popular Antigua Sailing Week annual regatta in held in late April/early May. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Antigua:

  • Visit Antigua’s town, St John’s, for its charming market and insight into local life.
  • Be sure to picnic on one of Antigua’s stunning, deserted beaches.
  • Visit Antigua in May and you may get to experience Antigua Race Week, where yachts gather from all over the world to race in the warm waters and party in the evenings. There’s a great atmosphere as the island comes alive.
