Antigua and Barbuda at a Glance

White sand beaches, dense tropical rain forest and beautiful coral reefs make Antigua and Barbuda a hot-spot destination for celebrities like Oprah, Erin Clapton and Georgio Armani. Join in the fun at a resort, or make hotel reservations elsewhere. Even with the big names, there is room for everyone here.

Antigua's diving is superb. Gorgeous corals brighten up the sea floor and gentle sea grasses will brush against your legs as you explore lagoons filled with flitting blue, red and white fish. While you are underwater, however, make sure you are wearing a wet suit or sunscreen. The warm tropical sun that feels so good on your shoulders and back may leave you as red as one of the tropical fish.

On shore, chose between fine dining, causal resort food or a harder-to-find local pick. As the evening wanes, listen to Antigua's renown steel drum bands with a drink in hand. Life is good.
