Islands – Antigua

Antigua is located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, and only 1 hour’s flying time from the British Virgin Islands.

Antigua has 365 beaches, one for each day of the year. The great majority rest inside the calm, protected waters of the island’s Caribbean side, and visitors are welcome.

Nelson’s Dockyard on Antigua is like a little piece of Britain in the sun. Admiral Horatio Nelson arrived in 1784 to develop a base for the British Navy at English Harbour. Today Nelson’s Dockyard has been completely restored, and it is now the only Georgian dockyard in the world. Do come and explore this remarkable location – it is like stepping back in time.

BVI Holidays can offer you the chance to visit Antigua either en route to the British Virgin Islands or returning from the BVI before you head back home.  A lovely finish to an already amazing holiday.
