Just 17 degrees north of the equator and boasting a year round warm temperate climate, magnificent beaches and spectacular natural geography – this is Antigua.
English speaking and lying at the heart of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean, the beautiful island of Antigua, famous for its love of cricket, is the dream vacation destination. Uncrowded beaches, turquoise waters and luxury yachts compliment a relaxed but sophisticated lifestyle.
At just over 100 square miles in area, Antigua is easy to explore. Steeped in history dating back thousands of years and a favourite of European royalty, the island has much to offer away from its 365 beaches. There are the uniquely restored Georgian buildings of Nelson’s Dockyard, Shirley Heights with its magnificent panoramic views over English Harbour, the beautiful tropical rainforest hills of Fig Tree Drive and much more.
Not only is it home to internationally renowned sailing events, there’s something for everyone – golf, snorkelling, scuba diving, kite surfing, deep sea fishing, rainforest walks, tennis, horse riding or simply a stroll around the duty free shopping port and capital of St. Johns. There’s also a great choice of dining throughout Antigua from waterfront fine dining and laid back Italian elegance, to road side barbecues featuring locally caught Red Snapper and Lobster.
Getting there is easy. Antigua has many non-stop connections including London, New York, Miami, Atlanta, Charlotte, Toronto, Montreal and Frankfurt. Multiple international and regional flights are scheduled daily through VC Bird International Airport making it easy for citizens to enjoy their visa-free travel privileges.
Tolumnia Orchids will provide a luxurious base from which to explore the wonderful island of Antigua.
