Antigua luxury holidays
Antigua's position in the West Indies makes it the gateway to the Caribbean and as such Antigua luxury holidays remain perennially popular. Although passed by the majority of shipping routes, it remains quiet, in part due to the enormous number of beaches to enjoy here; the tourist board boasts there are so many that you can spend each day of a year on a different one. Away from the beach, explore colonial-era sugar mills, Nelson's Dockyard and Fort James, watch cricket, the national obsession, drink local rum and enjoy the deliciously slow pace of life in the course of your luxury Antigua holiday.
Neighbouring Barbuda is essentially just a single, vast beach. Little more than a sand bar surrounded by coral reef and populated by frigate birds; the Caribbean's largest rookery is also here, making it popular with birdwatchers.
