If Caribbean holidays are on your mind, consider adding the island of Antigua to your list of possible destinations. Although many Antigua holidays are well known for their fun in the sun activities, due to the island’s many coves and bays, there are many other captivating aspects to this beautiful island.
For visitors interested in history, Nelson’s Dockyard situated in English Harbour is the world’s only fully restored Georgian dockyard. It was here, during the Napoleonic Wars that many English admirals found a secure home for their navy, mainly owing to the natural harbour’s highly strategic position.
Today, English Harbour is a charming boating community and Nelson’s Dockyard is part of a national park. Filled with shops, hotels and restaurants, the area also offers numerous sailing and hiking activities for visitors to enjoy.
Whether you are looking forward to relaxing on a beach with a good book, soaking up some remarkable historic facts or trying your luck at one of the island’s casinos, Antigua may be the perfect setting for your next holiday.
