Situated in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, Antigua is a beautiful tropical island ringed with coral reefs and blessed with calm waters and safe harbours. Antigua’s stunning beaches (365 – one for each day of the year) are complemented by lush green hills, while the well-preserved naval dockyards offer a glimpse of the island’s unique heritage. Antigua retains the charm of the real Caribbean, while offering a wealth of activities, lively festivals and breathtaking scenery.
Take a stroll on a private coral sand beach or enjoy the serenity of the tropical gardens.
