Things to Do in Antigua
With gorgeous beaches and turquoise water, Antigua is perfect for the traveler who needs sun, sand, and a drink in their hand, but this islandhas so much more than its crystal clear waters. Stop by Nelson’s Dockyard, a national park and cultural heritage site known for its rich history, walk through the public market to take in the local color, or stroll around Shirley Heights at sunset while enjoying the sounds of a steel pan band.
Antigua offers plenty of activities. Tee up at one of Antigua’s many golf courses or spy some of the beautiful birds at Frigate Bird Sanctuary and Great Bird Island. For those who don’t want to venture too far from their lounge chair and umbrella, Antigua is an excellent snorkeling destination and is perfect for seashell hunting.
