Top Antigua Experiences November 6, 2017

There's so much to see and do on the beautiful island of Antigua from snorkelling to sunbathing, hiking to history. We've picked out our top three unmissable Antigua experiences - make sure you plan your next holiday with these in mind!

Beach Bar Trail




Be sure to ask your hotel reception about the Beach Bar Trail. This map highlights the best beach bars Antigua has to offer, as well as some hidden gems you might otherwise miss. The map features the island’s best hotels, too, so you can easily pick out your starting point. Winding your way around the island, you can sip fresh coconut water and feast on ‘fungi and conch’, watch the sun set with a glass of English Harbour rum in hand, party the night away with a mango daiquiri – this ingenious trail doesn’t miss anything out!

Sailing



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



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.
