Welcome to Antigua and Barbuda, a tiny Caribbean country with a massive amount to offer visitors.

Most travellers who find themselves on the island of Antigua and Barbuda are there for one reason: the beaches.

While I highly recommend checking into one of Antigua’s many all-inclusive resorts and enjoying some easy relaxation, it would be shame to not explore more of the island. After all, there’s a lot to discover here.

Why visit Antigua:

Laid back vibes, friendly faces and beautiful sunsets are just a few of the pleasures that await you daily in Antigua.

Antigua is everything you want a Caribbean island to be: it’s beautiful, it’s easy to get around and it’s beyond chilled.

But it’s so much more, too.

If you’re willing to venture beyond the comforts of your Antigua resort – something I highly recommend you do – you surely won’t regret it. You’ll find a rugged and varied island waiting to be discovered, with plenty of untouched nature, secluded beaches and curious locals ready to offer a friendly conversation.

Antigua may be famous for it’s 365 beaches (one for every day of the year!) but I’m sure you’ll find so much more to this compact Caribbean paradise.
