THINGS TO DO IN Antigua

Antigua in a Nutshell

  • A typical day in Antigua is surely spent on the beach. This small island stretches far and wide to home exactly 365 beaches – yes, we’ve counted. Making you want to stay every day of the year, each beach has calm and crystal waters accompanied by cloud-like golden sands.Jolly Beach is superb for exciting water sports, with helpful and professional staff that will show you the ropes.
     
  • Cool off from the Caribbean Sun by making a splash on a jet-ski or just take in the views under the shade with a cocktail at The Nest Beach Bar.Head to one of the quieter beaches on the island for pure swimming and sunning. The likes of Pigeon Point, Half Moon Bay and Turner’s are the perfect spots for secluded luxury.
  • Head to OJ’s Beach Bar and Restaurant for freshly prepared dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Each meal is carefully made to order and guests can chat with OJ himself while waiting. Specialising in seafood, the red snapper with seasoned rice is a must!
     
  • For a local taste of flavour, head into the town centre of St. John’s. Turn your eyes away from KFC and feast them on Roti King – street food fit for royalty. Specialising in succulently filled rotis, diners can grab-and-go this Caribbean delicacy. Choose your roti to be filled with chicken, beef or fish and be ready to lick this crown jewel from your lips.
     
  • For a fine dining experience, venture down to The Tamarind Tree at Curtain Bluff Resort, a five-star experience like no other. This hotel welcomes outside visitors with open arms, but be sure to book in advance. Get your glad rags on and indulge on à la carte dishes while watching the waves gently caress the shore.
     
Soak Up The Culture

 
  • Shirley Heights is a must-see both during the day and at night. High above the Harbour, visitors are mesmerised by the gorgeous views this island presents, stretching to neighbouring islands Montserrat and Guadeloupe. Shirley Heights comes to life on Sunday evenings with a live band and freshly grilled BBQ food overlooking the sparkling scenery. Mind the edge!
     
  • Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua’s National Park, is well worth the visit. History is absorbed with a walking tour around the colonial architecture so make sure you pack something other than flip flops. Get your education fix and learn all about Nelson himself and the English occupancy of Antigua through the years. Teacher’s pet? Never.
