Antigua, is really a beach destination island. A true Caribbean holiday destination with 365 beaches; one for each day of the year! Our favourite beach is Jolly Harbour, see our beach film and blog here   Our film on Antigua Jolly Harbour Beach If you want to jump a bus tour, here is what we had on our tour. This bus tour included Nelson’s Dockyard, the derelict sugar refinery, the exterior of the cricket stadium and many photo and craft stops.

They call Antigua a beach with land in the middle where you can snorkel, dive, float and boat or a trip to the partner island Barbuda. We asked on our chat sites which are people’s favourite beaches and they suggested.

Valley Church (but not a swimming beach because of currents), Dickenson, Rhum Runner, Jolly Beach and Turners Beach. Our film on Antigua Jolly Harbour Beach

To be fair you go to Antigua to beach and sea, not to tour. See our film on Jolly Harbour Beach where we had a fantastic day out. All for $4 US! It is an island with little wind, calm seas and a coastline of bays which is why it made it the perfect place for Admiral Horatio Nelson to hide the British Navy back in 1798. It has had a strong British feel ever since and it is why ships love going there. The port town has changed little in years and it is small. Many taxi drivers will offer you rides to beaches and there will be organised excursions to somewhere, in the novel American Portrait the story of agreeing to a taxi tour then sitting in it waiting for it to fill up is very well told. Instead of just a beach visit, you might like to spend the day at a boutique hotel and be spoilt, like Sugar Ridge. If you do, then please do some research then let us know the outcome on the Doris Visits Caribbean Chat Site. Where next, St Lucia? We have a whole menu of films of every Caribbean destination. Please share.
