And on its chic south coast around historic Nelson’s Dockyard & National Park, lies the epi-center of the Caribbean yachting industry.
GETTING TO ANTIGUA
Activities for the whole family
From world-class yachting to gorgeous beaches, Antigua offers an abundance of experiences
Nelson’s Dockyard National Park is the most visited in the country. The only continually working Georgian-era dockyard in the world, it is one of the prettiest historical sites in the Caribbean and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Just off the coast of Antigua sits Cades Reef, an underwater park and one of the island’s best snorkelling and diving spots. On calm-weather days, visibility at Cades Reef can be up to 100 feet (30 meters) deep. You may even be able to spot an old sunken yacht on the outer reef.

Hiking through the National Park around the Beach Houses is completely invigorating for mind and body. With jaw-dropping views, friendly island goats and tropical fauna to enjoy, a walk here is quite a special experience.
