Just a few simple steps, and Antigua is yours.

Antigua is an easy option for a dose of longed for winter sun – and it’s very much open to UK travellers. You’ll need to provide evidence of at least one dose of a WHO approved vaccine (which all UK vaccines are) and a negative PCR test result from within the last four days to enter. You’ll also need to sign a health declaration on arrival. It’s as easy as that.

Swim amongst the jagged coral reef, snorkel in Stingray City, learn about the industry that dominated Antigua for centuries at Betty’s Hope Sugar Plantation, and enjoy champagne breakfasts along glistening beaches.

Top Locations in Antigua

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Antigua, we’d go for these.
Jumby Bay, Long Island

Long Island

Carefree and carfree on an exclusive private island.

Welcome to Jumby Bay. A private 300-acre islet which allows only hotel guests, staff and residents on the island at any given time, guaranteeing absolute privacy. Here, you’ll get around via golf carts, bikes, or foot and spend your time swinging on hammocks and enjoying champagne picncs under the stars.

Stingray City, Antigua

Mercers Creek Bay

Snorkel with the ‘brightest’ rays in the Caribbean at Stingray City.

Boarding a boat from the private dock of Jumy Bay, you’ll journey across the ocean for 15 minutes before reaching Mercers Creek Bay. Once here, we’ll arrange for you to swim with majestic, friendly, and curious Southern Stingrays – an intimate experience many of us hold dear.

Antigua -Green Island

Green Island

Deserted beaches and sunsets that you’ve waited a lifetime for.

A privately owned island lying just off the east coast of Antigua, its beautiful beaches serve up a level of security and serenity like no other. Spend your morning’s snorkelling above vibrant coral reefs, your afternoons swinging in hammocks, and evenings tucking into delicious chef-prepared hampers.
