Antigua and Barbuda lie in the eastern Caribbean Sea, bounded by superb beaches. Many travelers visit the islands in order to relax on the pink-and-white sands and explore coral reefs and shipwrecks. Enjoy their tropical forests and bird populations as well.
Antigua is the bigger of the two islands, where international flights land and cruise ships dock. Once you have found your accommodation, head to the beach; there are hundreds to choose from. Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay on the northwest coast are popular with families, while Half Moon Bay on the southeastern coast has a good reputation with windsurfers. For a little adventure during your vacation, zip line above the trees of Antigua’s rainforests.
In the capital city, St. John’s, find the mid-19th century baroque St. John's Cathedral. Shop in the weekend farmers market and learn about the history of the islands at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda.
Elsewhere on Antigua, go to the English Harbour to see Nelson's Dockyard. It was Admiral Horatio Nelson's home for several years in the 1780s. Visit the surrounding national park as well.
Travel to Barbuda on the 90-minute ferry service, Barbuda Express. Barbuda is less developed than Antigua with fewer people and resorts. Visit Frigate Bird Sanctuary near the northwestern lagoon, home to more than 170 species of birds. Venture into the limestone caves at Two Foot Bay to see resident bats.
The water off both islands offer numerous dive and snorkeling spots. In addition to the marine life, look for many shipwrecks to explore. Other water-based activities include sailing, kayaking and fishing.
When dining out, be sure to try the islands’ specialties: extra-sweet black pineapples on Antigua and lobster on Barbuda. The national dish is fungie (cornmeal and okra dumplings) and pepperpot.
A good time to visit Antigua and Barbuda is between mid-December and mid-April. The weather is still hot, but doesn’t reach the extremes of summer. Come for the relaxed lifestyle, nature and beaches.

Beautiful setting. We were very far away from the restaurant and central area, but the walk was ok. We had one night of very loud music from the public beach which went on until after 11pm; we complained to the desk the next day, but were told there was nothing the resort could do. The food was amazing ...
Staff were attentive and polite. Dining was excellent. Staff went out of their way to make your stay wonderful.
Would have liked the option for television but not a deal breaker.
All good really. Particularly liked the gardens. The bedside lights in our room were too high on the wall! Seriously, that's the only negative I can think of!
We spent a week here during the height of the North American Covid-19 crisis and the beginnings of travel restrictions. The property was not full and we found the amenities (beach chairs, umbrellas, pool loungers etc.) to be plentiful and well taken care of. The rooms are clean, easily spacious enough ...
This is such special place. We stayed in Spice cottage and could not have been happier. Set in amongst the trees with a beautiful view of the ocean. We woke up to birdsong every morning and walked along gorgeous Galley Bay beach. The accommodation was extremely well stocked and Marco helped us with ...
Beautiful beach and property. Great place to relax. Older crowd and laid back.
