Welcome to Antigua
For visiting sun-seekers, Antigua offers the expected Caribbean splendors—white-sand beaches, elegant resorts, and colorful reefs—alongside a generous dollop of history. Admiral Nelson resided here in the 18th century; explore that naval heritage at the UNESCO-listed Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Meanwhile, one of the top things to do in Antigua every spring is enjoy the internationally regarded Antigua Sailing Week, which brings in yacht regattas and jetsetter types. For the rest of the year, life runs on island time—expect relaxation and rum punch in between snorkeling trips, rain forest ziplining, and tours of the capital, St. John’s.
