About Antigua

The sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands, Antigua is also the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands, about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide.

With 365 white sand beaches, Antigua claims to have one for every day of the year.

Once known as the "gateway to the Caribbean" because of its location and natural harbours, Antigua is dotted with reminders of its nautical past, from Nelson's Dockyard, one of Antigua's finest physical assets, built by Horatio Nelson in the eighteenth century, to the beautifully restored Redcliffe Quay. More than 100 picturesque stone windmills, some now housing bars, shops, restaurants, and homes, serve as a testament to Antigua's role in the sugar trade.
