Chief Executive Officer of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority Colin C. James


Welcome to the beautiful twin-islands of Antigua and Barbuda! Here you will find a country of stunning beaches, lush scenery and friendly, hospitable people. We invite you to experience our unique Antiguan and Barbudan charm and hospitality. From the moment you step into our new airport terminal until that final swim before leaving our sun-kissed shores, you will experience warm memories that will last a lifetime.

While we really do boast 365 of the best beaches anywhere in the world, there is still so much more to see and do. If excitement is what you seek, take a zip through the rainforest, go kite surfing or simply kayak through a South Coast mangrove for an unforgettable experience.

You can also take a step back in time by visiting one of our many historical sites. Popular among visitors and locals is Nelson’s Dockyard, the world’s best-preserved Georgian Naval dockyard which is still in operation today, with some of the best sailing in the Caribbean.

Be sure to sample the delicious, local cuisine which is a great way to interact with us during your visit. If your stay is around the end of July to the beginning of August, you will experience the grand celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Caribbean’s ‘Greatest Summer Festival’ – Antigua and Barbuda’s Carnival!
You will be mesmerized by all the colourful bands, bangles and beads and stand in awe at the kaleidoscope of vivid costumes and the pulsating rhythms of the bands parading through St. John’s city in a cultural celebration of our heritage.

Antigua and Barbuda has to offer a wide range of accommodations - from the ultra-exclusive, luxury resort to the all-inclusive villa or inn - many of them fully-equipped to accommodate persons who have travelled for business and pleasure. Whether a romantic resort or a charming escape to a villa or inn, or even a downtown conference hotel, we can help you create either a “home away from home” experience or to facilitate a productive work travel experience.

So you see, everything has been carefully planned, not only for your comfort and enjoyment, but also for the successful execution of business meetings, conferences, workshops etc.

You have heard it all, now it is time to experience true paradise. We invite you to experience one of the most charming and memorable Caribbean destinations for a truly unforgettable vacation or business travel experience.
