    Antigua and Barbuda Hotels

    Antigua and Barbuda hotels and holidays allow you to follow in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus who was the first European to set foot on the island in 1493, claimed it for Spain and named it Santa Maria de la Antigua. It is now the destination of choice for many luxury Caribbean holidays.

    Admiral Horatio Nelson noted it was a perfect place to base his British fleets and today it is the perfect base for a holiday in a luxury Antigua resort. Not only is there a beautiful white beach for every day of the year but the coral reefs, once the bane of enemy ships, attract snorkellers and scuba-divers from all over the world. Nelson's Dockyard is Antigua’s most popular attraction with inns, shops, market, restaurants, art centre and a small nautical museum, on an historical note it is the only Georgian dockyard in the world.

    If you like sailing it is an excellent place to take a holiday as courtesy of the Trade Winds, Antigua is also home one of the world’s foremost maritime events, Sailing Week which takes place usually in late April and early May.

    For those who love to explore nature on a holiday, the neighbouring undeveloped island of Barbuda has point of interest which include the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, the gorgeous pink and white sand beaches, an abundance of shipwrecks and beautiful reefs.
