Antigua (pronounced an-TEE-ga) is located in the middle of the Leeward Islands, about 300 miles southeast of Puerto Rico or 1300 miles southeast of Miami. The island is the largest of the Leewards with 108 square miles.

Antigua is well-known for its great beaches (365 of them, accourding to the tourism folks) . There’s a beach for every activity level: stretches of white sand border turquoise waters teeming with marine life, beaches where your family can walk and hardly see another soul, beaches where you can shop for local crafts and buy some barbecue at beachside grill, and beaches where you can just curl up under a tall coconut palm and sit until the sun sinks into the sea and marks the end of another Caribbean day.

This 108-square mile limestone and coral island is somewhat scrubby with rolling hills, especially on the southern reaches. The capital city is St. John’s, home of most of the tourist shopping and the cruise port. Throughout the island, families will find all inclusive deals Antigua and extended stays online. The south shore of the island is favored by yachties, who call into Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour.
