When stepping foot onto this beautiful laid back country, you will notice how everything is so relaxed, peaceful and chilled. Its beautiful rugged cliffs and stunning beaches make up its coastline, with crystal clear waters, it really is paradise. Antigua is home to rich history, with Nelson’s Dockyard nestled into English Harbour. If you love sailing then Antigua and Barbuda is the place for you.
The sister island of Barbuda, is a lot smaller, less touristy and much more laid back. In Antigua, if you’re looking for amazing beaches then head to the deserted stretches of sand in the south-west, beyond Jolly Bay area, and if you tour St John’s, make sure to end up in the restored Redcliffe Quay for a drink!
