You can start your trip from St. John; the capital of Antigua. You can enjoy some local sightseeing like Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, but feel free to consider any of the 365 beaches locals love to boast about for some real fun. This “beach for every day of the year” is enviable concept indeed. From rainforest to local hilltops with breath-taking views, all are just a breeze away indeed. Try Barbuda for pink beaches, soft coral dive sites, and Frigate bird sanctuary in Codrington Lagoon national park, which has 170 species of birds and houses more than 5,000 Frigate birds. This is a spectacular site worth a trip too because it is the largest bird sanctuary in Caribbean region.
Another magical moment for most tourists can be found in the restaurants. Their version of Caribbean cuisine is magnificent blend of local seafood with starch. Try out their national dish – Fungie, which tastes a bit like Italian Polenta. You may also want to consider prawns and saltfish dishes on Barbuda Island. Try their Pepperpot, Roti, Ducana, Callaloo, Tamrind balls, and Johnny cakes. You can consider some Jamaican dishes available locally. But, local drinks and confectioneries remain a must try. If you want to play safe, there are plenty American, Chinese and other restaurants.
From Half moon bay in Antigua to Lighthouse bay in Barbuda, there are majestic and fascinating beaches so far away from the world of chaos that you will leave every shred of stress behind as you soak into pure Caribbean bliss. Amidst this unadulterated serene ambiance, there is potential for an adrenaline rush. Dive in finest scuba sites or go snorkelling to discover some of the unbelievable spectacles your eyes can behold. Enjoy a swim on Deep bay and visit Great Bird Island for snorkelling trip. Venture into the wild on Carpenter’s rock trail.
