Antigua and Barbuda Holidays,  Antigua and Barbuda Holiday Packages Overview

Antigua is what anyone would expect from a Caribbean island, beautiful white sand, warm and sunny. The island has a number of good hotels, several villas and the typical laid back lifestyle. Antigua has always had a long sailing tradition and friendly locals. Barbuda, on the other hand, is less developed and smaller but the beaches are breathtakingly beautiful.

For both islands, tourism tends to dominate local economy since there are few natural resources. With its offshore reefs and beautiful beaches, Antigua is an excellent destination for snorkelling and sailing. Cades Reef and north-east of Antigua are particularly popular for snorkelling since these have exposed coral reef.

St. John's is the centre of all activity for Antigua and Barbuda. It is home to various shopping destinations, beautiful Creole buildings and the Antigua and Barbuda Museum that showcases the island's history, colonial artefacts and ancient finds.

For shopping, there are two popular shopping malls in the city located close to the cruise terminal. Located in a beautiful restored warehouse, the Redcliffe Quay has a lot of character and offers everything that visitors would want.

The locals on the island love having a good time so there are a number of excellent bars and restaurants around. Most bars and restaurants boast of magnificent views and are located in restored buildings, in forts, on the beaches and on hilltops, offering a stunning view of the sunset or the beach.

Antigua and Barbuda are all about relaxing on the beach, sipping a cocktail and enjoying the laid-back lifestyle.
