Antigua is for lovers….of beaches, sailing and sunsets. This low lying coral island is surrounded by reputably 365 beaches, each one pristine white and often in its own secluded cove. However, Antigua has so much more to offer, whether it’s sailing, diving or another choice of waterbourne activity. Antigua, the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands, is about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, encompassing 108 square miles. Its highest point is Boggy Peak (1319 ft.), located in the southwestern corner of the island. Barbuda, a flat coral island with an area of only 68 square miles, lies approximately 30 miles due north. The nation also includes the tiny (0.6 square mile) uninhabited island of Redonda, now a nature preserve.
St. Johns the capital is fairly small but lively for shopping and dining. Cruise ships dock here and the recently developed Heritage Quay has a range of duty free shops, restaurants and a casino. You can also visit Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour.
Temperatures generally range from the late twenties in the winter to the early thirties in the summer. Annual rainfall averages only 45 inches, making it the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, and the northeast trade winds are nearly constant, flagging only in September. Low humidity year-round.
