NEW! How you can make your stay more authentic, sustainable and memorable

These tips provide the insider’s knowledge on how travelers can engage with local culture, make their vacations more memorable, promote sustainability in the region, and enhance their overall holiday experience.

  • Recommended excursion – visit to the Sea View Farm Village. Antiguan folk pottery dates back at least to the early 18th century, when slaves fashioned cooking vessels from local clay. Today, folk pottery is fashioned in a number of places around Antigua, but the center of this cottage industry is Sea View Farm Village. The clay is collected from pits located nearby, and the wares are fired in an open fire under layers of green grass in the yards of the potters' houses. Folk pottery can be purchased at outlets in the village as well as at a number of stores around the island. Buyers should be aware that Antiguan folk pottery breaks rather easily in cold environments.
  • Visit the Antigua Carnival between July 28th and August 7th,which is a ten-day festival of colorful costumes, beauty pageants, talent shows, and especially good music.  The festivities, which celebrate emancipation, are exciting and extensive, ranging from the Party Monarch and Calypso Monarch competitions of Calypsonians, the Panorama steel band competition, and the spectacular Parade of Bands to the Miss Antigua Pageant and the Caribbean Queen's Competition. Another great event to attend is the Mango Festival taking place in mid-August, which features many fun activities and workshops to promote utilization of mangos and other local fruit, as well as support linkages between tourism and agriculture
  • Some of the best spots to dine on the island are considered Abracadabra Restaurant and Disco-Bar which features Italian cuisine, and the Sheer Rocks Restaurant that offers Mediterranean cuisine in a romantic atmosphere, and is known for supporting local farmers and producers of the best ingredients from the island
  • Carlisle Bay can organize excursions into the rainforest which include talks on the importance of conservation and wildlife protection
