Antigua and Barbuda

A country comprising two islands, Antigua and Barbuda is a beautiful destination to include in your Caribbean cruise. Antigua offers a coastline dotted with quaint coves and sheltered bays, while Barbuda offers opportunities to snorkel around pristine reefs and spot the famous frigate birds nest on the cliffs.

The region’s capital, St John, is a popular cruise port with many cruise lines visiting here throughout the year in a number of eastern Caribbean itineraries.

Antigua’s Coconut Grove offers perfect breakfast spots and lunch with a view, while hikes around the southern coast feature the craggy cliffs and wild coastlines that this island is renowned for. With Barbuda, the Frigate Bird Sanctuary and underwater diving make it a prime spot for animal and nature lovers to enjoy.

A port of call on many Caribbean cruises, Antigua is a delightful island in the West Indies. With its shimmering white, palm-fringed sands and tranquil turquoise waters, it's a little slice of paradise on earth. One of the premier tourist destinations in the Caribbean, there are many tourist hot spots here, including ‘Nelson's Dockyard' which is situated in the English Harbour and pays tribute to Antigua's past as a Royal Navy base. If you journey a little further up the hill then you'll discover ‘Shirley Heights' which are the ruins of the former lookout fort of the Royal Navy and offer the most stunning views. Antigua has 365 superb beaches ('one for each day of the year' say the Antiguans). There's a beach to suit everyone. The beach closest to St John's is at Fort Bay, near Fort James. Antigua is home to numerous shops and boutiques, which sell everything from straw products, rum to jewellery. The best place to buy local handicrafts is the ‘Mercado Artesanias' (handicraft market). You'll find textiles, masks, local pottery and wooden crafts here. The local currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (E.C.). Antigua is 5 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT -5)."
