Antigua is the largest island of the English-speaking Leeward Islands situated in the eastern Caribbean. Its famous white-sand beaches and pleasant year-round temperature are just two of many reasons to enjoy a luxury holiday to Antigua with Revere Travel. The atmosphere here is blissfully laid-back and the island’s love affair with the sea and yachting, in particular, makes it a huge attraction for those who love being on the sea - Antigua Sailing Week is one of the world’s premier regattas. The scenery is stunning and from Shirley Heights you can admire views as far-reaching as Montserrat and Guadeloupe; beach-lovers should head for Half Moon Bay with its pink-hued sands; cultural lovers should visit St John’s and Nelson’s Dockyard which was the base for the British Navy in the 18th century. If you want to see Antigua in full carnival swing, the island’s annual festival is held at the end of July/start of August.
