Antigua Overview

    Mapping Out Antigua

    Antigua is the main island, boasting 365 beaches and a coastline of gorgeous beaches and scenic harbors. Head west to St. John’s, the nation’s capital and largest city, which offers local culture and serves as the docking point for cruise ships. Moving inland, the remnants of the sugar industry–such as a plantation, a church and a fort–provide a glimpse into the island’s history. English Harbor, on the southern coast is home to Nelson’s Dockyard. To the north, Barbuda, Antigua’s sister island, is famous for its light pink sand-speckled beaches. Ready for the cool fact of the day? Pink sand just happens to be the island’s primary export!

  • Restaurant Preservation Initiative

    Antigua’s independent restaurants offer delicious delights that are definitely worth checking out. For example, in Redcliffe Quay, Pizzas in Paradise serves tasty pizza concoctions and delicious island specialties with toppings like lobster and seafood. Le Bistro offers elegant, French cuisine and a strong wine list in an intimate setting. The chef prepares everything from fresh seafood to duck to escargots. The view through large windows and the upscale decor blend into an exotic melange of French luxury and Caribbean beauty. Cecilia’s High Point Café is a laid-back, beachfront cottage. But don’t let High Point‘s looks fool you. The food is a step above. Cecilia's mix of fine dining and friendly atmosphere make this a coveted restaurant. All these restaurants offer something special, so curb your appetite with a savory meal.

    They Have How Many Beaches?

    We searched through the island’s 365 beaches to give you the top 3 you need to see:

     

    1. Even though the half-mile beach at Half Moon Bay is not exactly easy to get to, the white sands, coral reef, excellent surfing and snorkeling make the trip completely worthwhile.

     

    2. At Pigeon Point near Falmouth Harbour, two white-sand beaches offer equally awesome swimming and snorkeling.

     

    3. Head to Barbuda for the famous Pink Beach. Crushed coral makes up part of the sand, so the whole beach has a rosy shine. This beach, located on Antigua's sister island, is low in amenities but high on beautiful tranquility.

     

    These probably won’t be the only beaches you visit, but they’re unforgettable starting points.

    Nelson’s Dockyard Is Your Dockyard Too

    Shop and dine at Nelson's Dockyard, and span the bridge between past and present. This dockyard’s claim to fame is remarkable and specific. It’s the only working Georgian-era dockyard in the world. Nelson’s has been in use since 1704 and has hosted sailors such as Horatio Nelson and King William IV. The Dockyard Museum tracks the site's course through history, offering stories, artifacts and insight into the fascinating people and events in the Dockyard's past. Once you've learned about the history surrounding you, explore the several restaurants, hotels and shops along the dockyard. As you walk around and take a look in these various establishments, recall what you've learned about the pirates, sailors and locals that walked the very path you're walking. You'll realize the dockyard's history isn't just coming alive, you're a part of that history.

    In the Footsteps of Hungry Sailors

    When you’re visiting Nelson’s Dockyard, be sure to check out the restaurant and bar at Admiral’s Inn. The Inn was built in 1788, and 18th century sailors supposedly carved their ships’ names into the structure's timbers. A museum displays artifacts from the original hotel and the British Navy's operations at Nelson's Dockyard. It’s a great stop for history buffs, and everyone can enjoy the Inn’s unique ambiance. Many diners opt to sit on the Inn's terrace, which offers great views of the harbor. Enjoying a meal on the terrace in perfect Antiguan weather during a sunset forms a good, lasting memory. This restaurant has hosted mariners and visitors for centuries. Now you can become a part of that proud tradition.
