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.

Things To Do In St Lucia

Nightlife

The best nights out when you travel are those with a real local flavour, and that’s what you’ll get in Saint Lucia. As well as great food, Gros Islet is also home to the biggest street party on the island where you can party with the locals each Friday night. On the west of the island Anse La Raye has its own Friday Fish Fry, with local seafood, dancing and plenty of music! For a different flavour, try exclusive Rodney Bay where the cool restaurants and bars take you from day to night, with added clubs and casinos for after hours.

Dining

A fine dining experience in a 5 star restaurant prepared by a Michelin starred chef, or some hearty home cooking at a local beach bar, codfish served from a roadside stand or soaking up the atmosphere at the Gros Islet Friday night fish fry. In Saint Lucia you can experience all of this and more on an island where traditional Caribbean fare sits alongside international food and local, organic produce is the star of the show.
