Antiqua is an active and exciting destination; while relaxing on the beach is encouraged, those with a penchant for sports and activities will not be left restless. Antigua hosts world-class regattas for sailing aficionados, as well as cricket, fishing and kite surfing. And while the thrill-seekers are busy, those looking to indulge in some R&R can sink into the addictive Antiguan brand of relaxation. Spend your holiday strolling along the beach, sipping cocktails or resting beachside with a book.
When exploring the town, we recommend Shirley Heights Harbour (minutes from our St. James’s Club) – you can’t beat the view and the Sunday BBQ party has music, an electric atmosphere, and stunning sunset views; it is an experience not to be missed.
Towards the end of July and in the first week of August, the incredible Antigua Carnival begins. This is a 10-day event on the streets of St. John, with dancers, musicians and a variety of entertainers. This wonderful celebration is a tribute to both the spirit of Antigua and its residents and to calypso music itself.
Fly into Antigua VC Bird International Airport (ANU) direct from London, with a flight time of around eight hours.
