There may be a powdery soft white or pink sandy beach for each day of the year, and crystal clear turquoise waters that glisten in the sun, but this incredible island offers so much more.

"Enjoy spectacular views over English Harbour accompanied by barbecued lobster and a rum punch (or two!) while listening to the dulcet and seductive tones of steel bands and reggae music – absolutely magic."

Relaxed, fun-loving and wonderfully unspoilt, Antigua is one of the Caribbean’s best-loved treasures. A breathtakingly-beautiful island, ringed by powdery white-sand beaches and spectacularly-clear turquoise waters, this is a ravishing natural beauty. And while it’s smaller than many Caribbean destinations, it more than makes up for it in the endless attractions it holds for its visitors.
