Famous for its white sand beaches and pleasant year-round temperature, Antigua sits in the Eastern Caribbean and is steeped in naval history with so much more to offer than just a different beach for each day of the year, although that's a pretty good reason to go for a luxury holiday in itself! For a start, the atmosphere is blissfully laid back - although there are glamorous restaurants, boutiques and casinos too. The island's love affair with the sea and yachting in particular is a huge attraction with Antigua Sailing Week being one of the world's premier regattas. There is more to see on land too with rainforest class hills where sugar mills dot the landscape, the historic Nelson's Dockyard and a trip up to Shirley Heights to admire views as far reaching as Montserrat and Guadeloupe. The island explodes in to a colourful carnival every summer with 11 days of festivities, something you don't want to miss on your family holiday.
The mix between history, adventure, and nature makes Antigua ideal for a family holiday. Look into the different travel packages to see which excursions and resorts are right for you.
