Antigua and Barbuda’s gently sloping coastline and graceful harbours have long lured travellers to Antiguan waters. Landmarks such as Nelson’s Dockyard on English Harbour stand testament to bygone British maritime power in the region.
Today, the islands enjoy a rich culture, abundant wildlife and is renowned for hosting some of the world’s most spectacular sailing regattas. The tropical island boasts over 365 soft, white sand beaches – one, it is said, for every day of the year. For the adventurous, the gentle tide gives way to choppy waters on Atlantic side of the island. In the East, palm-fringed skyline stretches out to meet azure sea as gentle waves crest the horizon. The perfect winter retreat.
