It’s hard to believe, but the pictures are real! The tropical paradise of Antigua is a pristine island of soft, white-sand beaches, dark turquoise waters and never-ending sunshine. Even in winter, the temperatures are in the mid-20s (°C) and that’s as ‘cold’ as it gets. This former British colony in the West Indies is only 22km long and 17km wide, but you’ll find plenty of opportunities for leisure and relaxation during your holidays in Antigua. Smaller and less touristy than other Caribbean islands, it offers broad beaches and secluded coves, creating the perfect setting if you’re looking for the easy life and the perfect tropical escape from home.
