Summer Sun in Antigua April 25, 2019

It’s safe to say life’s a beach on beautiful Antigua, a Caribbean island blessed with 365 beaches, coves and secluded bays - one to fill up every day of the calendar. It’s no surprise that it’s home to some of the most stunning resorts in the Caribbean, from boutique honeymoon hideaways to family-friendly all-inclusives.

With year-round tropical climes and a wealth of things to see and do, why not consider visiting the island during the summer months when there are fewer people and lower rates?

Antigua Carnival runs from 25th July to 6th August this year, and it brings with it the chance to witness the island come alive in a kaleidoscope of colour and music as the ten-day festival spills out onto the streets with parades, steel bands, fragrant food stalls and absorbing cultural events.

The humble mango also takes centre stage on 6th July, as the two-day Antigua and Barbuda Mango Festival gets into swing at the Botanic Gardens. Celebrate all things mango-related, with the chance to taste and buy jams, pepper sauces, pastries, ice creams, candles and cosmetics.

A natural attraction not to be missed, from July to October, you’ll have the opportunity to watch sea turtles nesting on the beach or hatchlings making their way into the sea for the first time.

No matter which time of year you choose to visit, the sunset party at Shirley Heights can always be counted on to bring tourists and locals together for a night of music, food and rum punch every Sunday night.

You’ll find there’s a lot more to this island than just lazy days catching rays. A fabulous yachting scene, rich cultural heritage, sports on offer ranging from horse riding to watersports to cricket, and an eclectic variety of restaurants and food stalls mean Antigua’s never short of surprises.

Half Moon


"You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality."

"With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it."

"At 65 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the soon-to-be-open East Cove will feature two new restaurants, three bars, an adult-only swimming pool, swimming lagoon and much more."
