Luxury Jolly Harbour Holidays

A small town with a big following

Jolly Harbour

Jolly Harbour is a colourful little township on Antigua’s west coast. Popular for its lovely community village feel, the self-contained commercial centre is home to little shops, bars and restaurants that get a good nightlife scene going in the evenings. The pristine marina is on hand for sailing trips and fishing, with villas and a handful of luxury hotels lined up along the water. The town is a great place to tee off, with the Jolly Harbour Golf Club offering a challenging 18 holes set in a beautifully hilly landscape littered with lakes. The mile-long beach, Jolly Beach, is another big draw; a perfectly flat curve of powdery white sand smoothing into the pale turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

Just along the coast from Jolly Harbour is Ffryes Beach. It's an idyllic sandy bay with a fantastic restaurant at one end. Named after its owner, Dennis, it serves the best goat curry in Antigua.

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

The official language of Antigua is English.
