Compare holidays to Antigua and start getting excited about a trip to a stunning destination in the eastern Caribbean. This West Indian island is the epitome of picture-perfect paradise, with gilded white sand beaches and bewitching crystal waters, and you can experience its compelling allure with holidays to Antigua from Manchester.
One of the Leeward Islands and making up the larger half of Antigua and Barbuda, Antigua is a magnificent destination that offers a vibrant culture to complement its tranquil nature. Holidays to Antigua are suitable for a wide range of occasions, from annual getaways to once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memorable honeymoons.
The number one attraction in Antigua is the island’s sensational array of beaches - there are 365 in fact, one for each day of the year. With so many sandy stretches there are plenty of opportunities to find your own secluded strip, while the sea stays warm throughout the year. Dickenson Bay is one of Antigua’s foremost beaches, although if you prefer a little more space then Runaway Beach to its south could be the spot for you.
Stick to the charms of the coastline and spend lazy afternoons snorkelling among Antigua’s coral reefs, or plunge a little deeper and go diving at the island’s shipwrecks. If you prefer to stay dry then take a glass-bottomed boat across the waters, or paddle along at your own pace in a kayak.
Sample some of the best of Antiguan culture with a culinary tour that will tickle your tastebuds with delicious Caribbean flavours, or head to the Recreation Ground in capital St. John’s when there is a game of cricket on; in late July and early August the cricket ground also plays host to Antigua Carnival, one of the island’s biggest events.
Relax in the sands, sip on a rum punch and soak up the best of this beautiful Caribbean island as you enjoy holidays to Antigua from Manchester Airport.
