So Many Beaches!
When thinking of tropical vacations, beaches are the first things that come to mind. Do you like going to the beach for a day? How about one new beach for every day of the year?
Despite its size, Antigua boasts a total of 365 picture-perfect beaches. Each beach is unique with its luxury villas, resorts, and restaurants, with various water sports, shore-lined reefs, secluded coves, surfing spots, and lagoons. When it comes to beaches, nothing beats Antigua.
The best way to get to the best beaches is by bus or car. We highly recommend going to Half Moon Bay, Long Bay, Pigeon Point Beach, and Ffrye’s Beach.
Enjoy Incredible Seafood
Antigua is the perfect Caribbean holiday destination for the foodies out there to enjoy delicious seafood dishes. Because the island is surrounded by water, you’ll always have a taste of the finest, freshest seafood, such as rock lobster, grouper mackerel, conch, wahoo, and many more.
Authentic local cuisine involves plenty of bold flavors – a delicious spicy mix of peppers, garlic, onion, and thyme. Do you love discovering new dishes and tastes? Antigua is the perfect place for you.

If you are into history, Antigua’s historic preservations are perhaps one of the best in the Caribbean region.
Their Capital, St. John’s, is where 19th-century buildings are situated. There are also St. John’s Cathedral and Betty’s Hope, which used to be a sugar cane plantation.
