Colonial splendor meets paradise coves
Hello, and welcome to Antigua and Barbuda, where English and Creole are both spoken widely. The bigger island, Antigua, has a coast of coves and inlets that once protected ships in all weathers, and now shelter holiday makers in their calm waters. Like other Caribbean islands, Antigua is bright, with many houses and bars painted to compete with the sunshine and blue sea of the very same place. Yet, there is also an air of Englishness, with St John, a port city, feeling in parts like a very in-season seaside in the UK. Barbuda was hugely damaged by a hurricane in 2017, so getting tourism money back into the economies of both islands could be helpful. If you want to hang out and drink rum with friendly locals, or maybe tour local wildlife, all while on a dream beach holiday, then VISIT ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA!
