Antigua Holidays

Introduction

Antigua is one of the jewels of the West Indies and a perfect holiday destination for those looking for sun, sea, and sand. A direct flight to Antigua from the UK takes about 8 hours and 40 minutes, and the island rests in the Atlantic Standard Time zone, which is 5 hours behind GMT. The currency in Antigua is the East Caribbean dollar, although many businesses that cater to tourists show offer prices in US dollars.

Regions

The capital of Antigua is St. John’s (pictured below), and this is a good place to do some shopping, catch a cricket match, visit museums, and see historic architecture. The city has a lively and multicultural feel to it. Holiday makers looking for a party will not want to miss the Carnival in St. John’s, which takes place every year in late July and early August.

Antigua holidays are not complete without some serious beach time. Dickenson Bay is a great place for families and sun worshippers, as the sand is soft, the waves are calm, and there are many restaurants, hotels, and shops lining the beach. Half Moon Bay is a bit of a trek to get to, but the trip is worth it for the excellent waves that are perfect for adventure junkies who enjoy surfing, wakeboarding, and wind surfing. Those looking to play Robinson Crusoe can head to Pink Beach on neighbouring Barbuda island with its long stretch of rosy-hued sand that is often deserted.
