Adventure Holidays in Antigua and Barbuda

Tours in Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua may boast 365 beaches – one for every day of the year – but don’t let the sunbathers fool you. There’s much adventure to be had on Antigua and Barbuda holidays: intensely green tropical rainforests teem with exotic birdlife, the crystalline waters beg you to dive in, and the streets fill with music in the evenings.

Warm trade winds blew many men seeking their fortune to these islands, leaving a fantastic array of architecture at Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour – the only Georgian dockyard left in the world. It is also the perfect base from which to visit neighbouring Montserrat.

Highlights of Antigua and Barbuda trips

1. Nelson's Dockyard: Wonderfully restored to its former Georgian grandeur, the dockyard is a treasure trove for history buffs. It's named after Admiral Lord Nelson, who lived here for three years from 1784.

2. Montserrat: Travel to the nearby island to witness an active volcano from a safe location. It last erupted in 1995 and there are various vantage points. 

3. Shirley Heights: Enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and discover Antigua's tropical countryside, picturesque village life and the calm, rolling hills.

4. St John’s: The brightly coloured buildings liven up the capital – the arts and crafts market near the West Bus Station is a great place to pick up souvenirs.
