Antigua is the perfect destination for all things sailing. The renowned Antigua Sailing Week happens every year around April – May time and attracts people from around the world. During the event, the island comes alive with parties and celebrations so whether you’re a sailing enthusiast or just a passing observer, it’s a fantastic time to visit and soak up the festive atmosphere. Aside from this, there are over 20 sailing events lined up for 2018 as well as sailing lessons for those that want to get more involved.
Shirley Heights is definitely a must-do while in Antigua. Drive or walk to the top of this restored military lookout for picture-perfect views of English and Falmouth Harbours from a 490-foot vantage point. The views are particularly striking at sunset when the skies are glowing and the bay begins to sparkle. Every Sunday for the past three decades, Shirley Heights has been host to evening barbecue parties where visitors and locals come together to eat and listen to local bands.
