Cruises to Antigua

An overview of Antigua


Antigua, a Caribbean paradise, boasts stunning beaches, a rich colonial heritage and a vibrant capital in St. John's. With its turquoise waters, historic sites and warm hospitality, it's an island where relaxation and adventure blend seamlessly under the sun.

Antigua is renowned for its dazzling beaches, and one that stands out among the rest is the idyllic Dickenson Bay. Located on the northwest coast of the island, this crescent-shaped beach boasts soft, powdery sands and crystal-clear turquoise waters. It's the perfect place to bask in the sun, swim in the gentle surf or simply unwind in the shade of swaying palm trees. What sets Dickenson Bay apart is its balance between serenity and activity. You can find peace and solitude here, perfect for those seeking a tranquil escape. Alternatively, the bay offers a variety of water sports for the adventurous traveller. From jet skiing and parasailing to paddleboarding and snorkelling, there are plenty of ways to engage with the Caribbean Sea.

For history enthusiasts, a visit to Nelson's Dockyard is a captivating journey back in time. This historic site, named after the legendary British naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, is one of the Caribbean's most well-preserved colonial treasures. It stands as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an enduring symbol of Antigua's maritime heritage. Nelson's Dockyard is nestled within English Harbour, surrounded by lush green hills and turquoise waters. As you explore the cobblestone streets lined with beautifully restored Georgian-era buildings, you'll feel like you've stepped into the pages of history. The Copper and Lumber Store Hotel, a charming boutique hotel within the dockyard, offers an immersive experience with its historic ambience and modern comforts.

To witness some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of Antigua, make your way to Shirley Heights Lookout. Perched on the southern tip of the island, this elevated vantage point offers a sweeping vista of English Harbour, Falmouth Harbour, and the surrounding coastline. The azure waters and lush landscapes create a mesmerising backdrop that's perfect for capturing stunning photographs.
