Welcome to Antigua, a tropical paradise located in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.
Antigua is one of the top holiday and vacation destinations in the world, with superb beaches, a vibrant culture, excellent restaurants and nightlife, and a huge choice of activities… all within easy reach.
The tradewinds that once blew British men-of-war safely into English Harbour now fuel one of the world’s foremost maritime events, Sailing Week. The expansive, winding coastline that made Antigua difficult for outsiders to navigate is where today’s trekkers encounter a tremendous wealth of secluded, powdery soft beaches. The coral reefs, once the bane of marauding enemy ships, now attract snorkelers and scuba divers from all over the world.
Antigua, the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands, is about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, encompassing 108 square miles.
Temperatures generally range from the mid-seventies in the winter to the mid-eighties in the summer. Annual rainfall averages only 45 inches, making it the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, and the northeast tradewinds are nearly constant, flagging only in September.
There are flights to Antigua from around the world daily – and Antigua is a hub for onward travel to many smaller and larger islands within the Caribbean.
