Exquisite beaches, world class sailing, first class hotels and a distinctly English vibe, the tropical twin island paradise of Antigua and Barbuda is the ultimate getaway for families and couples.

In Antigua, you can zip-line through the rainforest, swim with the stingrays at Stingray City or reach into the island’s rich colonial history at UNESCO world heritage site Nelson’s Dockyard. Antigua is rightly proud of its 365 flawless beaches, and its reefs and coves are home to 200 shipwrecks that surround the islands. Just a short ferry ride from Antigua lies Barbuda and its 17 miles of pink sand beach are awash with wildlife and rare bids- it has one of the largest colonies of Frigate birds in the world! As the sailing capital of the Caribbean, the annual Antigua Sailing Week each April and the Classic Yacht Regatta make the island a magnet for the international jet set.

Antigua is a charming, luxurious escape and makes the perfect pairing with untouched Barbuda.
