Antigua and Barbuda: Travel Weekly
The Islands of Antigua and Barbuda
The stunning islands of Antigua and Barbuda are known for more than their easy-going way of life, idyllic climate, crystal-clear waters, and the famous 365 pink and white sand beaches. Award-winning hotels, world-class sailing, duty-free shopping, and a fascinating history all await you here.
Many of Antigua’s famed beaches rest inside the calm, protected waters of the Caribbean Sea. Antigua’s shoreline is washed almost exclusively by the Caribbean Sea and is hugged by 95 miles of superb coastline.
Her sister island of Barbuda is an eco-lover’s paradise, where long pink and white sand beaches are protected by impressive barrier reefs, keeping you as secluded and untouched as the island’s natural beauty.
Tours and Attractions
With 365 beaches (one for every day of the year), there are lots of water-based activities for water-lovers to engage in. Whether it’s swimming with stingrays for the adventurous, a romantic sunset catamaran, a jet-ski adventure, or a day spent exploring Barbuda, you are guaranteed to have a good time.
For the landlubbers, historic walking tours through St. John’s City and the UNESCO World Heritage Site in English Harbour are a great way to learn about the island’s rich history. A horseback ride, off-road island safaris, or a zip line through the rainforest are just some of the other ways to discover the destination.
