Antigua is said to have 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. We haven't counted them but you'll certainly be spoilt for choice with pretty scalloped coves, endless deserted stretches, pounding surf and artful driftwood. There is a lot more to Antigua than just the beach however: a rich maritime heritage dating back to Nelson still influences some of the best sailing in the Caribbean; the historic capital of St Johns with its majestic cathedral and several museums provides some unexpected cultural highlights; Indian Town National Park where you can find Devil's Bridge, an impressive natural limestone arch and the verdant hills and tropical rainforest of St Mary's. Whatever you choose to do on Antigua, it is sure to be the perfect choice for your luxury holiday.
