Your travel guide to the West Coast
Are you travelling to Antigua soon? Here is a quick guide to things to do.
Everything is in close proximity, as Antigua is a small island and it takes a few minutes to get anywhere. It takes about 1.5 hours on a private boat charter or a 15-minute plane ride to get to the sister island of Barbuda. Positioned where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet, these islands are known for reef-lined beaches, sun, soft sand, and a mini rainforest. Jolly Harbour is the hub on the West Coast and you can find many international restaurants, beach bars, hiking trails, water activities, and the best beaches in the area. Temperatures generally range from the mid-seventies in the winter to the mid-eighties in the summer, making this destination highly desirable. Annual rainfall averages only 45 inches, earning the top spot for the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands. You will fall in love with these sister island nations over and over again.
