Antigua is a classic mixture of easy Caribbean living with strains of British colonial flair.
It certainly delivers on tropical sands with a 365 pristine beaches, backed by swaying palms and sea grape tree, but travel inland and to the former naval port of English Harbour and reminders of a rich historic past of sugar plantations and a strong maritime association begin to surface.
Indeed, the island is still a very popular yachting destination, especially in April/May when classic yachts descend on the island for the world-famous Antigua Sailing Week. Another British pastime, cricket, is the nation’s passion and devotedly played all over.
The island benefits from regular direct flights from the UK making it a top choice for the ‘fly and flop’ brigade and this is reflected in the extensive choice of accommodation all over the island with an excellent selection of luxury beach resorts.
