OVERVIEW

Antigua is located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Incredibly clear turquoise waters surround the picture-perfect Caribbean paradise that is ideal for relaxation or exploration.  Antigua has a laid back vibe, making it a perfect honeymoon location.

Crystal clear water reveals marine life and coral encrusted shipwrecks, providing excellent conditions for spectacular shallow diving and snorkeling. Enjoy romantic strolls along sandy white beaches with your loved one.

Barbuda is a 90-minute ferry ride north of the island blessed with an incredibly romantic and desserted eight-mile pink sand beach. The sand gets its unique rose peal hue from the crushed coral in the sand.

Warm temperatures and sun all year makes this destination the perfect honeymoon location at any time of the year.

Antigua boasts captivating scenery just waiting to be explored. Shirley Heights is a romantic spot for watching the harbour become covered in a golden glow as the sun sets over he bay.

Climate

With Antigua the best weather lies between December and May, because these are the months that offer the least humidity, intense heat and mosquitoes. During these months it is very pleasant and calm, but like many other places in the Caribbean, Antigua is still prone to short sharp showers throughout the day with the wettest month being October.
