Amazing Holidays to Antigua and Barbuda
With beautiful white-sandy stretches of beach aplenty, warm azure-blue Caribbean waters the norm and day after day and clear skies filled with rays of sunshine there is no wonder these Caribbean islands are a firm favourite amongst holidaymakers and celebrities alike.
It’s said there’s a stretch of sand here for every day of the year so if stunning beach scenes galore are your thing then these are 100% the islands for you! Still there are more adventures to be had should you choose to head out this way;
- Party into the evening (Thursday and Sunday evenings to be precise) with live reggae and calypso at the hilltop restaurant-bar, Shirley Heights Lookout.
- Journey to one of Antigua’s remotest and perhaps most stunning beaches, Rendezvous Bay. Grab a 4x4, boat or take a walk through the rainforest to get there and be amazed at the idyllic scenery before you.
- Grab your snorkel and get up close and personal with stingrays at Stingray City and make a memory that’ll last a lifetime.
- Charter a boat and sail past the stunning Pillars of Hercules cliff edge and head out for a day, a night, a fortnight into the crystal clear waters surrounding the islands.
- Feel the spray of the sea against your face as you gawp at the haunting Devil’s Bridge limestone rock formation. Ask the locals (especially the older ones) about its history.
- Spend a day living a true island castaway fantasy in Barbuda where you can walk on soft white sand for miles (17 to be precise) without meeting another human being.

With history and adventure aplenty, in Antigua and Barbuda life’s more than just a beach
Take time out from sipping on rum punch cocktails and reading a book by the waves to explore some of Antigua’s history. Nelson’s Dockyard is an absolute must-do and a highly recommended place to visit! This restored 18th-century British Naval base will charm you with its cobbled lanes and old buildings. Still used as a working marina, this is one of the world’s key yachting destinations and a firm family favourite. Visit during one of the many key yearly boating events and lay witness to an array of vessels from stunning superyachts to much smaller family-sized boats and everything in-between.
For an altogether different day out, make sure to take a 90-minute boat ride over to Antigua’s sister island Barbuda, where winged animals outnumber humans, and visit the Frigate Bird Sanctuary. Home to the largest sanctuary of its kind in the Western region, this lush mangrove and mud swamp landmass is well worth your time.
