Antigua is one of the 2 main islands that make up the Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and is known for its numerous sandy beaches. Along the English Harbor, is Nelson’s Dockyard, which was the base of Admiral Horatio Nelson in the 1780s and includes a marina and the Dockyard Museum. There are trails that ascend to Shirley Heights, an old military observation post with a panoramic view.
Antigua has 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, but if you’re like me, you don’t have that many days in paradise to see them all. And it’s not hard to find one, two or even ten that are your favorites. Antigua has some of the finest beaches in the Caribbean. Some are full of action, with water sports and crowds, and others are calm and family friendly, but a surprising number of them remain undeveloped, while others are completely secluded, castaway beaches.
