Antigua and Barbuda, two former British colonies in the Eastern Caribbean, have some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Antigua boasts that it has "a beach for every day of the year," and Barbuda, Antigua's sleepy sister island, boasts some pristine stretches of pink-tinged sand dotted with chic resorts. Many movie stars and business moguls go to the islands to swim, surf, sunbathe, and swoon on the stunning beaches.
The bulk of visitors come to Antigua. Many passengers disembark at the vibrant capital of St. John's, where shopping, museums, and historic buildings are the main attractions. Animal lovers may swim with friendly stingrays, and the island's heritage as a major naval harbor is preserved.
Barbuda has a population of less than 2% of the total population of the islands. The tranquillity is prized by seclusion seekers and environment enthusiasts, while birders like the renowned frigate sanctuary.
Diving, swimming, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing are all popular water sports on both islands, while golfers can find a couple of gorgeous courses on Antigua.
