Best Things To Do in Antigua

Antigua vacations are almost always centered on the beaches. Should you tire of the sand, consider smelling the flowers and buying the local produce at St. John's Saturday Morning Market, learning about Antigua's naval history at Nelson's Dockyard National Park, or touring a former sugar cane plantation like Betty's Hope in St. Peter parish. Nightlife is available in the Falmouth and English harbors.
