Antigua Beach

Antigua is known worldwide for its Antigua Sailing Week and Yacht Show. And for its popularity among the world’s wealthiest yacht owners. Its popularity dates to 1671, when a chartered yacht discovered the natural harbor as a haven from a hurricane.

Now, privately chartered yachts still gather at the historic Lord Nelson Dockyard in English Harbor. Here, yachts embark on charters to various protected bays, coves, and natural harbors. Together with the nearby island of Barbuda, there are more than 365 beaches to explore.
