The island of Antigua and its sleepy sister Barbuda are a beach-lovers paradise. The dreamy sun-soaked islands are perfect for relaxing on pristine, pink-tinged beaches and plunging below the brilliantly hued crystalline waters. The laid-back environment encourages guests to slow down and let the island life take hold, even if just for a week. Touch down at V.C. Bird International Airport and one of hoppa’s friendly drivers will be awaiting your arrival. Just one of the many perks of pre-booking your Antigua airport transfer with us.

The cheerful capital city of St. John’s is a smattering of pastel-coloured colonial houses and lush tropical flora. The city’s port welcomes dozens of cruise ships to its shores and the city’s historical landmarks such as: St. John’s Cathedral, Fort James and Fort Barrington are reminders of the British colonial past. Duty-free shopping is reason enough to spend a day bopping around St. John’s lively shopping areas of Heritage Quay, the touristy Heritage Bay and the weekly outdoor markets. Across the island lies the English Harbour that holds Antigua’s most impressive attraction, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. The 18th-century Dockyard houses beautifully restored historical buildings that include restaurants, hotels, galleries, shops and two museums.

Antigua boasts, “a beach for everyday of the year,” and its not just the perfect weather that lure thousands of holidaymakers to Antigua and Barbuda. Each island has its own luscious stretches of pristine coastline and clear blue waters. While practically every inch of coastline is picture-perfect there a few beaches that stand out. Dickenson Bay, right outside of St. Johns is one of Antigua’s most popular beaches. Visitors love the wide-open space the beach provides as well as excellent snorkelling and water sport conditions. The long stretch of beach is lined with stylish resorts and a variety of restaurants.

To the south is the crescent Half Moon Bay. The untouched strip of silky white sand separates the lush natural foliage from the turquoise sea. Visitors can snorkel during calm days and imagine their own deserted island.

On Barbuda there is only one beach you need to know and that is the breath-taking 17 Mile Beach. There are few beaches on earth that can rival the tranquillity of this absolutely gorgeous and secluded seaside paradise.

Whether you desire a deluxe all-inclusive resort, a private luxury villa or a quaint self-catering cottage, Antigua offers accommodation for every style of traveller and budget. You don’t need to break the bank to enjoy the natural wealth of the islands, but you could if you wanted to. When you pre-book your Antigua airport transfers you save time and money that are better spent relishing every moment of your Caribbean holiday.
