Antigua & Barbuda

Antiguans claim to have a different beach for every day of the year and their island's many beautiful soft, sandy beaches and coves certainly constitute its main attraction. Low-lying and volcanic in origin, Antigua and Barbuda form part of the Leeward Islands group in the northeast Caribbean. Barbuda lies 40km (25 miles) north of Antigua and is an unspoiled natural haven for wild deer and exotic birds. The beaches are excellent with coastal waters rich with all types of crustaceans and tropical fish. The most popular resorts have hotels located either on beaches or close by, where you can cool down with a local drink such as ice-cold fruit juice or, should you prefer something stronger, Antiguan-produced red or white rum. Restaurants and bars can be found in the main tourist areas. Steel bands, combos and limbo dancers travel round hotels, performing nightly during the winter season (November to April).
