The Antigua region
If you’ve never visited Antigua there are delights galore in store for you. The warmth of the people of Antigua equals the warmth of the sun that shines most of the time. When it does rain it’s called ‘liquid sunshine’. Antigua enjoys near perfect year round subtropical weather and is one of the driest islands in the Caribbean. Average annual temperature is 79F (26C) – Jan and Feb being 77F(25C) and August 82F (27C). The hurricane season lasts from June to November with September the busiest time for storms. However, statistically only four hurricanes hit the islands every 100 years.
The history of the island is alive and evident everywhere and you will find much to occupy your time exploring historic sites and attractions – unless you are intent on lying on the beach every day soaking up the sun. These are the finest beaches in the Caribbean of course and offer world class diving and sailing with a wealth of other water sports.
The island measures 15 miles east to west and 11 miles north to south. It covers 108 square miles and is the largest of the Leeward Islands. Nature lovers will delight in luxuriant flora abundant everywhere.
The Jolly Harbour / Hamilton Estate area
Its just a ten minute stroll to Jolly Beach and the local harbour where there is a large supermarket which caters for most needs. Jolly Harbour also offers a variety of restaurants & bars, a casino, shopping & excursions, an 18 hole golf course, water sports, boat hire, tennis, squash & gym.
Still conveniently local you will find world class dining, and a choice of lively beach restaurants.
International Cricket Week (cricket is Antigua’s national sport and there is fierce devotion to this sport) Featuring the WI against visiting teams. Antigua has produced world class cricketers the likes of Viv Richards, Richie Richardson, Curtley Ambrose and Andy Roberts.
Tennis Week – in May and attracts top name seeds from around the world
Yacht Regatta – attracts yachts from around the world and this is held the week before the Antigua Sailing Week.
Sailing Week takes place at the end of April and attracts entries from around the world for racing – non stop festivities at this time.
Carnival – takes place the first Monday and Tuesday in August and is a vibrant summer festivity.

We were a family of 6 adults who stayed at Ffryes villa from the 22nd of december 2012 until 4th January 2013 we all had an excellant holiday. Ffryes villa is very charming, decorated with taste, clean and very spacious with a new internet router that works to perfection and all the appliances you need to have a wonderful holiday in beautiful Antigua. The veranda for al-fresco dining surounded by tropical plants with colourful birds visiting the garden is blissful for breakfast, sunbathing or a late cocktail in the evening and the swimming pool allows an early morning or late night swim.
Dan the caretaker and Yasmine the house manager certainly make sure your very well looked after throughout your stay.
I had been in Antigua and other caribbean islands before but had always stayed in hotels, renting the villa gave us more freedom . We found many delicious charming restaurants , my favourite is Hemingsway in St. Johns, the lobster, crab cakes and cocunut shrimps west indies currys and creole sauces are mouth wateringly delicous, however if you like a steak cooked to perfection try Peters at Jolly Harbour , or an excellant Italien is Abracadabra at the English Harbour.
We took a day boat trip on excellance from st. Johns to the sister island of Barbuda. The islands is stunninly beautiful with such soft white sand , the sea a soft pale transparent turquoise and the crew of the boat trip were excellant, caring and tendering to all of our needs. The beaches in Antigua, well there is so much choice each and every one as beautiful as the next- Finally a big thankyou to he Marianne the owner of Ffryes villa , the Christmas tree and the christmas greetings message was very kind and thoughtful gesture.
Finally Antigua is a strange mixture of wealth and poverty, beautiful landscapes gorgeous sunsets, stunning beaches, some very good restaurants and lovely, happy, Antiguan Caribbean people.
