Luxury holidays in Antigua

Famous for its white sandy beaches and many activities, holidays to Antigua can be as relaxed or active as you like. Spend your days on sun loungers listening to the lapping waves of the Caribbean Sea and the breeze in the palm trees overhead. Evenings offer a selection of lively bars in the towns, or you could enjoy gourmet candlelit dining on the beach. Perfect for couples and families alike, there are plenty of activities for the adventurous as well.

Watersports will keep everyone entertained, while scuba diving and snorkelling offer a chance to explore beneath the surrounding ocean. Book boat trips and explore towns dating back to the 18th century, or climb to the top of a mountain for luscious interior landscapes and spectacular views across the island and its many beaches. Many hotels offer Kids’ Clubs which will keep little ones entertained all day, while Mum and Dad enjoy a well deserved pampering session in the spa.

An island with 365 beaches – one for every day of the year – luxury holidays in Antigua are full of idyllic and relaxing experiences. Settle poolside or on the beach with a good book, hit the spa, or enjoy a boat trip and explore the surrounding area. Couples will find plenty to keep them occupied, with private beach dining available at many of our hotels, sunset sailing trips, and couples’ massages available.

Families are well catered for in Antigua, with Kids’ Clubs offering a range of activities, including finger painting, water sports lessons, cooking lessons, and lots more.

Flight Information

When to go

Antigua’s Caribbean climate means year-round good weather. Average highs hover around 28°C in June, while the coldest month is January at a toasty 25°C. The rainy season takes place from June to November, with October racking up the most rainfall. Unlike the constant drizzle we often get at home, Caribbean rain tends to fall in short, sharp bursts, usually followed by sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Antigua.

Tipping

A 10% service charge will often be added to restaurant bills, however, for good service, it’s common to leave a 5% cash tip as well. Aim for a 10% tip on fixed taxi fares and a couple of dollars for porters and maids.

Introduction to languages

Health

A visit to Stingray City is a must-do for any marine-life lovers. Being able to swim so close to a stingray was as unique and unforgettable as it was scary. A fantastic experience I would love to have again!
