What to do in Antigua

It’s said that Antigua has 365 beaches on its 108 square miles, one for each day of the year. And their names can be downright amusing (such as Jabberwock and Crab Hill). Some visitors have a “life-list” quest to lounge on all 365, though it would of course take a number of trips to achieve. Barring that, the best alternative is to find the beach that suits your personality and interests. There’s no shortage of Antiguans who would be happy to guide you to their favorite beaches for families, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, watching the waves, or whatever. From yacht races to cricket tournaments, Antigua’s popular pastimes give it away as a former colony of Great Britain. And the culture remains very British today.
