ABOUT ANTIGUA

  • Antigua is known as the land of 365 beaches—a beach for every day of the year

  • Places of interest in Antigua include Shirley Heights, Nelson's Dockyard, Dow's Hill Interpretation Centre, Fig Tree Drive, Harmony Hill, Devil's Bridge, Betty's Hope and the St John's Anglican cathedral

  • Antigua is also known for its 150 cane-processing windmills, each the focal point of a sizable plantation. Today, almost 100 of these stone towers remain, and they now serve as houses, bars, and restaurants

  • English Harbour—including Nelson's Dockyard, Shirley Heights, and more—is Antigua's historic district. Developed as a base for the British Navy, the harbour was known as the “gateway to the Caribbean”
