The Antigua region
Condé Nast Traveller voted Antigua's beaches the best in the Caribbean. There are festivals, carnival, exhibitions, colourful markets and major world sporting events including sailing, cricket, and tennis.
Antigua is roughly the size of the Isle of Wight, with a fascinating history,the ruins of 18th. Century stone sugar mills are dotted all over the island. Betty's Hope is a restored sugar plantation, open to the public, with a visitor centre. Harmony Hall is another, with a fine local arts and crafts centre, and a good restaurant for lunch.
Nelson's Dockyard a world heritage sight is a must which together with a visit to English Harbour and possibly a visit to Catherines Cafe for lunch make for a memorable day out. Historic Shirley heights, with live music including an excellent steel band, is a good venue for Sunday lunch (BBQ) very popular with the locals.
The Botanical Gardens, created in 1893, contain world class specimens. The museum and cathedral are located in the capital, St John's,as is the renowned shopping centre, Redcliffe Quay.
Heavenly Hill art gallery near Darkwood beach is worth visiting. Horse riding on the beach is available at Runaway Bay. You can enjoy golf, deep sea fishing, day cruises to the neighbouring islands of St. Kitts, Nevis and Barbuda, all the usual watersports,--- or just curl up on the terrace with a good book and a glass of rum punch!
Dickenson Bay beach is just 3 or 4 minutes walk away, where there are available sun loungers and sun shades.There are restaurants and bars on the beach together with all the normal holiday in the sun activities including Aqua lung diving with experienced tutors and guides.
You will find Supermarket, Banks, Pharmacy, Dentist just ten minutes drive away. St John's the capital is also 10 to 15 minutes drive away with all the buzz of a Caribbean town, bars, shops, markets, harbour.

We just returned from our 16-day vacation in Antigua. Tradewinds Villa is a hidden gem. I'm surprised the place doesn't have many reviews (yet) on Tripadvisor. Due to my being in a graduate … More

"Tradewinds Villa is a delight"
My husband and I stayed at Tradewinds Villa for a week in mid-May 2012. The brochure provided by the owners absolutely reflects the beautiful decor and the views from the terrace are breathtaking. The high position catches the cooling sea breeze and the ceiling fans were all we needed to be comfortable. We enjoyed the use of the pool in the adjacent Dickenson Bay Cottages. It is a downhill walk to the beach - followed of course by the uphill walk back! The very small Antigua Village Supermarket along the beach - turn left and go past Sandals - is enough for the essentials but the other supermarkets are a long walk away so it is easier to take a taxi. We ate dinner at three local restaurants, all within walking distance, Opus, The Bay Hotel and Coconut Grove, all lovely and the Coconut Grove is right on the beach. The beach bars are fine, however May is not in the busy season so some bars were closed or only offering food at lunchtime or not at all. If you book the circumnavigation trip in a catamaran (it was great, we went with Wadadi Cats - but there are others) telephone and book direct you will pay less. We had a great time.
