From coast to coast, in the suburbs or around urban settings, there are pleasant memories. Dickenson Bay, Nelson’s dockyard, Ffreyes Point, or Crabbes Peninsula is an unforgettable experience. And that includes taking a hike to the highest peak on the twin island, Mount Obama, formerly Boggy Peak.
You simply cannot pass Fig Tree Drive without the urge to visit the expansive and expertly designed zip line and rope challenge course and lush rainforest.
Antigua and Barbuda’s adventure is incomplete without sampling local cuisine and interacting with the people.
Big Banana in Historic Redcliffe Quay is cool for shopping, lunch and a tropical rum punch. After that, exploring St John’s tranquil surroundings popping in and out of boutiques and taking in the history of the capital and points of interest is unforgettable.
For an authentic experience chill-out at Papa Zouk Fish ‘N’ Rum to a full size crispy fried snapper served with garden salad, or steamed, either way, it’s succulent. Try the Ti–Punch, day or night.

Antiguans are taking ownership of the tourism product and guarding their interest with astute guidance. The South Coast mangroves, the rainforest, multiple small and midsize locally own properties, villas and condos offer countless selections to meet the traveller’s desires. Currently, farmers are exploring the British market to export pumpkins, peppers and sweet potatoes. Cultural linkages, quality products and service excellence are evident in the quest to maximize town and village tourism. Preserving the mangroves and surroundings is a major priority.
