Antigua

With its year round warm climate, steady Caribbean breeze, coastline of safe harbours, beaches and an abundance of coral reefs Antigua was the perfect island for Horatio Nelson to set base for the British navy over 200 years ago, and for the same reasons exactly tourists are attracted to her shores by the plane load today.

Finding cheap flights to Antigua can sometimes be a task especially during peak times like Easter and Christmas, by opting to fly via the USA a saving can be made and although extending the flight time a little longer it does give the option of a cheeky stopover for some great shopping.

Antigua itself is made up of 6 parishes with St John in the north being the most populated, in the south St Paul is home to English Harbour where Nelson set up the Royal Navy's base which these days has had a full restoration and is somewhat of a tourist attraction.

A holiday to Antigua need not cost the earth, of course there are the luxury hotels and resorts that pamper you and meet your every need and beyond, but if wanting to visit the island on a budget there are plenty of cottages, guest houses and B7B's that offer authentic Caribbean charm.

Antigua is a popular sailing and yachting destination with a number of races and regattas and world class events that sell out annually. As with most Caribbean islands Antigua also hosts an annual carnival ten days of street parties, beauty pageants, talent shows and of course calypso music ringing out from a seemingly endless run of steel bands. Be sure to book early if attending the island during one of these events.

The island is probably most famous for its weddings and honeymoons, what could be more romantic than strolling hand in hand along a sandy beach dressed in your whitest cotton suit, staring lovingly into each other's eyes with a Caribbean sunset as a back drop. Most hotels and resorts offering special wedding and honeymoon packages and even if it is just an anniversary or special occasion it is worth mentioning to your hotel as often an upgrade on the house is achievable.
