Luxury St. John's Holidays

Contemporary Caribbean capital

St. John's

St John’s, Antigua takes you to the north west of this beautiful island. It’s a former naval fort, giving it a fascinating history, as well as being the capital of the island where you’ll find a bustling market and a selection of bars, restaurants, and shops. Head to the beach and you’ll find inviting white sands backed by palm trees and chilled beach bars, or enjoy the livelier streets of the town.

Colourful buildings overlook the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, and house duty free shops where you can pick up bright fashions, souvenirs, and trinkets. Head to the farmer’s market for a selection of local produce and a chance to immerse yourself in the vibrant local life. If you want to learn about some of the island’s history, you’ll find Antigua’s National Museum, as well as the historic, towering St John’s Cathedral within the town.

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.

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.
