Antigua and Barbuda: Best Tourist Place

Antigua & Barbuda is the destination of the Caribbean. The island had warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors and a protective wall, almost unbroken coral reefs. It would be a best place to hide a fleet. And then in 1784 the legendary AdmiralHoratio Nelson sailed to Antigua and established the largest Caribbean Britain basis. The island is now one of the premier tourism destinations of Caribbean.

The expansive, winding coastline that Antigua difficult to navigate is where today’s trekkers encounter a huge crowd of isolated beaches soft, powdery. Coral reefs, once the vessels of the brood of marauding enemy, now attract snorkelers and divers worldwide. And the fascinating little island of Barbuda, once a scavenger's paradise because so many ships wrecked on the reefs, now houses one of the most important bird sanctuaries in the region.



Antigua and Barbuda are situated in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. And in the south lie the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe and in the north and west are the Nevis, St.Kitts, St. Barts and St. Martin.


Antigua most people are speaking English. The island is about 14 kilometers long and 11 km wide, covering the 108 square miles. The country also includes the small uninhabited island (0.6 square miles) of Redonda. It is now nature preserved. The current population is 68,000 people. The nation capital is called St. John's on Antigua.

The weather is  low humid all year round.
