Antigua is the largest of the two islands that make up the beautiful Caribbean nation of Antigua & Barbuda. This stunning island is known for its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, making it an ideal holiday destination. While here, be sure to visit Nelson's Dockyard National Park, a former British Naval Base that has been wonderfully restored. Here you can explore centuries old ruins and take in views of English Harbour from Shirley Heights Lookout Point. Another must-see tourist attraction is Devil's Bridge, a natural limestone arch carved out by Atlantic waves crashing against the rocks over time.

For history buffs, there is plenty to discover in Antigua too. The island was once home to many sugar plantations during colonial times and sugar remains an important part of Antiguan culture today: visit Betty's Hope Estate for a fascinating look into this era. An interesting fact about Antigua is that it's also home to some of the oldest standing churches in North America - St John's Anglican Church dates back to 1681!
