Bushbaby Travel: Inspiring travel for life

Antigua, Caribbean

With a plethora of fine beaches - there is one for every day of the year should you be lucky enough to have the time - Antigua is definitely a place to take life easy. Equally, if you’re feeling more intrepid there is plenty to keep you entertained – a climb up Mount Obama, the highest point on the island, a day trip to Barbuda or a helicopter trip to the volcanoes at Monserrat are all at your disposal.

The island is perhaps most famous for its stunning English Harbour where you can explore the fully restored dockyard where Horatio Nelson lived for three years. The island has a distinctly English flavour, with narrow roads leading to pastel-coloured villages with English names, such as Falmouth and Carlisle. Sailing is an extremely popular activity here for both locals and international guests, culminating in the annual Antigua Sailing Week at the end of April.

For something completely different visit Stingray City where you can snorkel with sting rays, as well as see coral reefs and tropical fish.
