Antigua is the larger of two islands that make up Antigua and Barbuda and is a spectacular island getaway with travellers visiting here for the energetic island culture and the tranquil beach settings. Saint Johns is the capital and the only city on the island and boasts a wide variety of merchants offering everything from necessary amenities to holiday souvenirs. Another popular shopping spot is Heritage Quay at the land end of the cruise ship piers; here you can pick up a buffet of duty free goods from jewellery and linen to tobacco and liquor. Just south of the Quay is a unique shop that sells excellent quality hand-made gold and shouldn’t be missed, if even for a look at the stunning pieces. Seafood is extremely popular on the island and in addition to local specialities you can find every major type of cuisine scattered throughout Antigua, from Italian and Mexican to American and British. Scuba diving and snorkelling are ideal on the island due to the amount of colourful reefs that litter the coastlines, there are some fairly amazing fish to view and while you can simply wander off from the beach, some of the best dive sights are reached by boat. Sailing is another popular past time, with a plethora of rental places, there’s nothing to stop you exploring the many coves and natural harbours of Antigua.
