Antigua (pronounced An-tee’ga) is historically known as the “Gateway to the Caribbean.” Antigua is located in the heart of the Leeward Islands. The island is home to 365 beaches and fully-restored sugar mills that now serve as houses, restaurants, shops, and bars. This island has some of the worlds most beautiful beaches and crystal clear water. Antigua is also known for their coral reefs which is great for snorkelers and scuba divers!

Visit Antigua’s sister island, Barbuda! Barbuda is one of the few islands in the Caribbean that remains pristine and untouched, with its silky seashore bordered with endless pink and white sand beaches that stretch as far as 10 miles without halt. While there, visit Codrington Lagoon, home to the largest colony of Frigate birds in the world.
