As you are aware Hurricane Irma has devastated large parts of the Caribbean. Antigua have been lucky enough to have largely avoided any real damage. However, the sister island of Barbuda has been hit very hard with almost all of the island's building and infrastructure wiped out.

Antigua is the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands of the Caribbean and lies just north of the islands of St. Martin, St. Barths, St. Kitts and Nevis. Antigua enjoys a fabulous climate with year round sunshine, averaging 26-30 degrees C, low rainfall and low humidity making it one of the sunniest Caribbean islands.
Just 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, the local Antiguans are proud to say their island has 365 beaches – one for every day of the year. The beaches of Antigua are stunning, largely undeveloped with long stretches of powdery sand, small secluded coves and fringed with a magnificent, protective coral reef. The waters are crystal clear and a distinctly mesmerising Caribbean blue.
With its long British maritime history, Antigua was once considered to be the most important trading port in the Caribbean. Interesting monuments to this history are dotted throughout the island. Nowadays, the island admirably meets the requirements of the discerning traveller with a selection of beautiful private villas available for rental as well as small, luxury boutique hotels with stunning beachfront locations.
From scenic walks to explore the beauty of the island , an amazing coastline for swimming, snorkelling and diving, idyllic sailing, fishing and fabulous watersports, tennis, golf and horse-riding as well as the “all important” cricket so close to the Antiguans ways of life, Antigua has something for everyone. A trip to Pricky Pear Island or nearby Barbuda with its pink sand beaches is also highly recommended.
There is a huge range of restaurants with a variety of cuisine located around the island, from relaxed beach cafés to fine-dining at English Harbour and a fun night of steel band music and BBQ at Shirley Heights.
Worldwide Dream Villas offers a selection of luxury, private villas throughout Antigua as well as nearby Jumby Bay, a private island resort with an exceptional collection of villas available for rental.
