Adventures in Antigua and Barbuda

Turtle, Galleon Beach - Antigua

Antigua & Barbuda has a saying, “Where The Beach Is Just The Beginning”. We are going to dive into some fun adventures, relaxing moments, and overall guide you to an amazing time when you arrive on this beautiful twin-state island because the beach really is just the beginning!

The Beach Houses couldn’t be located in a better spot! There are so many exciting things to do in English Harbour, nearby and with a short ride by car or boat, you can easily explore other sides of the islands that will allow you to see what Antigua & Barbuda is really about.

Now, since Antigua & Barbuda is known for its amazing beaches, we are going to start there.
