With 365 stunning beaches on Antigua, you would have to book a year-long trip to experience all of them! Alternatively, book a luxury holiday and choose just a few to enjoy under the glorious Caribbean sun.

All beaches are wonderfully maintained, while the azure-blue of the ocean is calm and serene due to local reefs protecting the coastline.

For a fascinating insight into the island’s past, visit the English Harbour which accommodates museums and former British Navy heritage buildings dating back to Horatio Nelson times.

Luxury resorts offer an array of top quality amenities – from spas to water sports, from infinity pools to delectable cuisine, so there is something for everyone on this vibrant, sophisticated island.

To see Antigua at its most vibrant, visit during Antigua Sailing Week. Attracting yachts of all sizes, this is one of the world’s top regattas comprising challenging and thrilling races over six days. Held every April, the event takes over the island with its carnival atmosphere. Join other international visitors celebrating at the exclusive parties and prize-giving ceremonies.
