Plan Your Antigua and Barbuda Vacation

The wonder of Antigua, and especially its astonishingly undeveloped sister island, Barbuda, is that you can still play Robinson Crusoe here. Travel brochures trumpet the 365 sensuous beaches, "one for every day of the year," as locals love saying, though when the island was first developed for tourism, the unofficial count was 52 ("one for every weekend"). Either way, even longtime residents haven't combed every stretch of sand.

Top Reasons To Go

  1. Beaches Galore So many paradisiacal beaches of every size provide a tremendous selection for an island its size.
  2. Nelson's Dockyard One of the Caribbean's best examples of historic preservation.
  3. Sailing Away With several natural anchorages and tiny islets to explore, Antigua is a major sailing center.
  4. Activities Galore Land and water sports, sights to see, and nightlife.
  5. Shopping Options A nice selection of shopping options, from duty-free goods to local artists and craftspeople (especially distinctive ceramics).
