Antigua

Antigua, the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands, is about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide. Situated in the Eastern Caribbean it offers visitors wonders including the rainforest, crystal clear turquoise water along with authentic, mouthwatering Caribbean cuisine.


Sunny and warm all year with a soothing breeze, Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands. For sun-lovers and swimmers, there is said to be a beach for every day of the year. Most of them never get crowded and all of them are protected by reefs. These same coral reefs, attract snorkelers and scuba divers from all over the world. But the beach really is only the beginning.
