The Antigua region
Antigua is the heart and soul of the Caribbean, an exotic tropical island with an abundance of palm-fringed beaches, warm sparkling sea, English-speaking and life-loving locals, a wealth of land and water based activities, a huge choice of delicious international cuisines, and a background soundtrack of calypso and reggae.
The island is about 14 miles long by 11 miles wide and is renowned for its 365 stunning beaches, miles of picturesque coves, its legendary Sailing and Carnival Weeks, a profound love of cricket, cooling trade winds and ample sunshine.
Antigua is the perfect destination for sun-worshippers, water sports enthusiasts, golfers, and food-lovers.
Antigua has a rich history and heritage and this is reflected in its architecture and customs. The restored Nelson's Dockyard at English Harbour is a prime example of this and sugar mills and plantation houses dot the island. Inland towards the southwest is an unspoiled rainforest interspersed with picturesque villages, and the view from Shirley Heights is one of the Caribbean's greatest.
The Palms is a new luxury villa development set on a wooded hillside in a delightful valley setting with fabulous views over the very scenic Darkwood Beach, one of the most photographed beaches in the Caribbean. Still unspoilt, with the island of Montserrat in the distance, it has a good local beach bar and restaurant with beds and shade. The location is peaceful and serene, yet is only minutes away from Jolly Harbour and several other bars, restaurants and adjoining beaches.
