Discover the Charm of Antigua and Barbuda

Beaches Are Just the Beginning

While Jamaica, the Bahamas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands top many lists of favorite Caribbean destinations, now is the perfect time to try something new.

The sister Islands of Antigua and Barbuda, separated by a narrow band of Caribbean waters, offer visitors vibrant local culture, plantation-era history, and unspoiled natural beauty. With so many activities and attractions available, it may be hard to decide what to do and where to go first.

Here are just a few of our favorite things to do and places to visit during your stay in Antigua and Barbuda.

Explore Antigua and Barbuda

The Pillars of Hercules

Standing guard at the eastern entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, the Pillars of Hercules are not just a natural wonder; they are a living testament to the region’s mythological and cultural history. Shaped by millennia of tropical winds and crashing seas, these imposing limestone towers offer the ideal backdrop for snorkeling and swimming in the warm Caribbean waters.

Nelson’s Dockyard: A Glimpse into History

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Nelson’s Dockyard is the world’s only continuously working Georgian-era dockyard. Step back in time as you explore shops, galleries, and museums, all housed in restored 18th-century architecture. Built by the British Navy in the early 1700s, the structures eventually fell into disrepair after the Brits abandoned them in the 1780s. Some parts of the dockyard remained in use, but it wasn’t until the 1950s that comprehensive renovations began. Today, the Nelson Dockyard complex is fully restored and stands as a living, breathing reminder of the island’s colonial history.

Get in Touch with Nature at Stingray City

Known for their vivid colors and gentle, inquisitive behavior, the southern rays of Stingray City entertain thousands of visitors each year. Stingray City offers visitors the opportunity to swim with these friendly creatures in their natural coral reef habitat. Whether you snorkel with them in deeper waters or feed them in the shallows, your encounters with these playful, entertaining stingrays are sure to make a memorable impression.

Marvel at The Devil’s Bridge

The Devil’s Bridge, a natural stone arch carved by the sea, serves as the centerpiece of Antigua’s most-visited natural park. This imposing limestone formation is flanked by swirling whirlpools and active geysers, while nearby coves and beaches offer calmer waters for swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing.

Dickenson Bay and Beyond

While Antigua is famed for its 365 beaches, Dickenson Bay stands out for its natural beauty. Located on the western side of Antigua, Dickinson’s Bay is the perfect spot for beachside fun, and there’s no better view of the beautiful Caribbean sunsets.

Diving Antigua’s Coral Reefs and Sailing the Caribbean Waters

Antigua is surrounded by stunning coral reefs replete with a dizzying array of marine life, attracting novice and expert divers alike. For a different perspective, schedule a sailing tour to circumnavigate the islands or join a charter fishing excursion and catch your own dinner from the teeming Caribbean waters.
