Antigua: Star of white beaches

A twinkling star reflecting in the turquoise blue sea: Antigua’s coastline glistens brightly, with deeply cut bays seamed by more than 350 dazzling white beaches. An almost uninterrupted coral reef around the island smoothes the waves and offers beautiful dive sites. The two-hundred-year-old Nelson’s Dockyards attest to the fact that this was once the fleet base of the British Empire in the West Indies. Today restaurants and laid-back pubs have conquered these fortifications now restored true to the original.

Each year yachts from all over the world come together off the island’s coast to compete for the Rolex Trophy, one of the most prestigious regattas worldwide. And the select range of elegant hotels catering to high demands makes Antigua the superstar among the Caribbean holiday paradises.

Barbuda:A dream of an island
Surrounded by endless bright white or pale pink beaches lapped by the glistening turquoise-coloured sea, and populated by exotic birds, deer and other wild game. Antigua’s little sister comes pretty close to the perfect dream of a tropical island. Not quite 1,500 people inhabit the 25 km long and 15 km wide island of Barbuda, but there are 170 different kinds of birds. A colony of 10,000 majestic frigate birds with wingspans of up to 1.80 m has selected the island’s lagoon as a breeding area. A sunken jungle lies hidden in a massive cave opening. The rich and famous easily pay 1,000 dollars a night in one of the two small but exclusive hotels of the island. Less well-heeled visitors can join the island’s easy-going lifestyle at one of the simpler guest houses in Codrington, Barbuda’s only village.
