Antigua vacations 2020 & 2021
Travel with confidence
With our flexibility promise, and a dedicated expert to advise you while you plan, you can book with certainty with Audley.
Antigua was a British naval base, and there’s still a tangible British influence in Nelson’s Dockyard, although the luxury yachts bobbing in the water hint at modern Antigua’s glamorous side. Despite the island’s diminutive size, you’ll find a wide variety of beaches, from bustling stretches backed by bars to sweeps of little-visited white sand. Inland, you can journey along Fig Tree Drive, passing coconut groves and banana plantations, or watch a game of cricket, the national sport. Sunday afternoons are reserved for communal barbecues, eaten to the beat of a steel band.
