Popular as a holiday destination in the winter when Antigua's warm climate beckons visitors from cooler climes. Within a short time, you will find yourself seeking shade at a beach-side café, enjoying delicious seafood as you watch the boats bobbing on the horizon. Unsurprisingly given its history, Antigua has a distinctly British feel in its pastel-coloured buildings and orderly calm; yet these qualities are contrasted by the unmistakably tropical: the piercing colours of Equatorial birds, vibrant markets in bloom with limes, pineapple, mango and plantain, and of course unfaltering sunshine.

With beaches as heavenly as they are, and very little to disturb you, no one would judge if you spent the entirety of your holiday to Antigua swinging in a hammock in the sea breeze and enjoying a devilishly good rum punch; but there is plenty to explore if you can be tempted away, whether strolling historic sites such as Nelson's Dockyard, once home to the British Royal Navy, kayaking between gentle bays, or heading into the rainforest for hiking and zip-lining.  

Antigua is known for its annual Sailing and Yachting Week, held in April/May, and is a haven for sailors thanks to the ease of mooring. On land, however, some of the Caribbean's most sophisticated hotels lay in wait - ready to pamper and to bestow the West Indian welcome for which the island has become known.
