Caribbean Tourism

Antigua

Antigua - pronounced An-Tee-ga - is an island set in the Caribbean Sea forming one of the islands of the Eastern Caribbean. Antigua's romantic history began with its re-discovery in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, who named it for the Santa Mara la Antigua Church in Seville, Spain. Antigua, which is partly volcanic and partly coral, is surrounded by superb white sand beaches which are almost entirely reef-protected. An ideal place for swimming, Antigua offers snorkeling and all forms of water sports year round. Escape even further to Barbuda, 25 miles north of Antigua -- chic, remote and short on hotels but long on seabirds. Investigate one or more of 200 underwater wrecks or enjoy the island's wildlife sanctuaries. The rich and famous find Barbuda especially appealing. Antigua's size is 108 square miles, while Barbuda's size is 62 square miles. Antigua's population is 67,000, and Barbuda's is 1,200.
