Antigua & Barbuda holidays World class beaches, laid back atmosphere and family friendly
The beautiful islands of Antigua and Barbuda are found nestled in the heart of the Eastern Caribbean. Antigua is the bigger island at 108 square miles and was born out of a volcano in the sea which created its reef lined white sandy beaches. The northwest of Antigua is home to St John's city, the capital of the islands and main port.
Barbuda is separated from its sister island by 28 miles of beautiful Caribbean sea. It has a smaller population than Antigua and is home to the largest colony in the world of the Magnificent Frigate Bird. Barbuda is a combination of wild beaches on the Atlantic side and pink sandy beaches on the westside.
Both islands are known for their rainforests and friendly and welcoming people. They are the perfect beach holiday escape with 95 miles of superb pink and white sandy beaches, warm crystal waters and wonderful climate.
