Book Flights To Antigua & Barbuda
Hop on a flight to Antigua to see some of the most beautiful beaches in the world – there are 365 of them! There’s brochure-worthy Dickenson Bay on Antigua, where reggae-flavoured rum bars keep watch over a stunning shoreline. Visit the hidden arc of Half Moon Bay, where honeymooners can find seclusion to a backing track of bristling sea-grape trees and crashing Atlantic waves. Antigua is also rich in colonial history like Nelson’s Dockyard. The UNESCO enclave of Nelson’s Dockyard comes with old ship berths and half-ruined forts. The capital at St John’s has bustling farmer’s markets, sizzling fish restaurants, hard-fought cricket showdowns and historic churches.
Please note: Barbuda is known for its stunning pink sand beaches but it was hit by the 2017 hurricane (which happens around September). Locals are only just starting to return to Barbuda so visiting Barbuda isn’t currently an option and it’s sadly it is not certain the pink beaches are still there.
