Antigua is a "beach with an island in the middle." Its famed countless, silky beaches lapped by iridescent azure seas are cooled by lyric breezes. Surrounded by dramatic reefs, there's fabulous safe diving, swimming and watersports and for those preferring "terra firma," tennis golf, squash, hiking and horse riding.
The unspoilt, naturally charming resort island is the largest in the Leeward islands with its serene, small sister island, Barbuda 26 miles to the north. Retaining an eminence amongst those more selective visitors, our traditions of a high proportion of repeat visitors, our traditions of service, a smiling face, superb cuisine and a wonderful variety of accommodation are ensured.
Entertainment is both local and cosmopolitan and soft Caribbean sounds can be heard throughout the island. Summer carnival is the cultural and entertainment highlight of the year and one of the liveliest!
This spacious island, with its rolling hills and sightseeing, maintaining a priceless village ambiance to add to the sensation of timelessness.
Independent since November, 1981, Antigua was initially discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and named after the miracle working virgin Santa Maria de la Antigua of Seville Cathedral in Spain. Thanks to a network of excellent services to and from the international airport, Antigua is closer than you think.
