I am a proud Brit and while I love the changing seasons of the UK (somewhat more erratic than they have historically been!) I still have the fondest memories of my time living in Antigua.
The photos here show the stunning natural beauty of the island; however words cannot explain how seeing the same view with your own eyes is even more breath-taking.
Whilst the island is small, it’s only 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, it has a wealth of history to offer including the amazing English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard. If you’re up for a party Shirley Heights is a must on a Sunday evening. Not only do you get great music and rum punches you get one of the best views of the island.
Antigua prides itself on having 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, so if you ever get the opportunity to visit you will not only be welcomed by the lovely Antiguan people but will have a lot of deciding to do on which ones to visit!
There are also lots of other great events that happen throughout the year, one being Antigua Sailing Week (usually in April) which has classic yachts, modern sail boats and super yachts all visiting the island. There is a big party atmosphere on the island during this time and lots of opportunities for everyone to get involved!
If partying isn’t your thing then maybe a visit to the natural wonder of Devil’s Bridge or watching some cricket at the hallowed ARG could be on the cards if you’re timing is right. Well, the great Viv Richards is a local!
Whatever your desire Antigua has something to offer you. I enjoyed many years living in this paradise and would encourage you to visit and enjoy it too.
