Boasting 365 beaches, one for each day of the year so they say, there’s no denying that an Antigua holiday will leave you captivated. Antigua’s capital is St John’s, one of the prettiest capitals in the Caribbean with its colourful gingerbread houses, eye-catching cathedral and colonial style architecture. As well as a large cruise terminal, St John’s is a haven for shopping with the popular Heritage Quay home to all kinds of duty free shops and the arts and crafts market a fabulous place to visit to pick up locally made souvenirs.

Explore endless stretches of white sugary sands and crystal clear turquoise waters create the perfect picture postcard moment whilst the island’s countless coral reefs are just waiting to be explored.

Another must visit in this part of the island is the magnificent Shirley Heights, sitting high above English Harbour.

Where to Stay in Antigua

Antigua is a fairly small island so you can stay in any area. The hotels are generally all on the coast. The beaches in Antigua are gorgeous but we tend to like the ones in the south better, like Carlise Bay and English Harbour, as the sand is finer. If you like History stay in Nelson’s Dockyard– there’s lots of bustle there from April to July as many events happen like Antigua Sailing Week. The Capital is St John’s but there aren’t really any hotels there.
