Idyllic Beaches

Enjoy the stunning blue hues and refreshing breeze of 365 of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whether you are sinking your toes into the soft, powdery sands of Darkwood Beach, sipping cocktails on a beach chair at Dickenson Bay or venturing to the secluded Pearns Bay for a mid-week de-stresser, the seascape activities are limitless. 

Do you prefer Pink Sand Beaches?

If powdery white sands are not enough, visit our sister island Barbuda for a pink sand beach experience. The pink sand is seasonal and dependent on sea conditions.

Cultural Experiences

Carnival comes alive at the end of July to the first Tuesday in August with vibrant street parade. A myriad of masqueraders and spirited spectators unite in a colourful spectacle, embodying the rich tapestry of cultures that converge in our festivities. This jubilant gathering marks a celebration of freedom and cultural diversity but also serves as a poignant reminder of the abolition of slavery, weaving historical significance into the lively fabric of our carnival tradition. Come and revel with us to experience the magic of Antigua Carnival from July 25th - August 6th 2024.
