Antigua is a relatively flat island which is approximately 20 miles long and 10 miles wide. It is located in the northeast of the Caribbean just south of St Barths, St Martin, and Anguilla.
Antigua is best known for having some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the Caribbean. And the most famous of these is probably Half Moon Bay which has beautiful pink hued sands and stunning turquoise sea. The scenery is beautiful the views from Shirley Heights to the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe will literally take your breath away.
The island has a wonderful laid back atmosphere although there are plenty of glamorous restaurants, boutiques and casinos.
It is also one of the best known yachting and sailing islands culminating in the very popular Antigua Sailing week which takes place in late April to early May each year. It has an incredible atmosphere and the island literally comes alive.
Another time to see Antigua in full swing is during the Antigua carnival which takes place at the end of July and start of August each year and where you will see plenty of authentic calypso and reggae music, steel bands and dancing.
For the adventurous, a trip through the lush rainforests and mango groves of Fig Tree Drive is worth doing.
Antigua is also well known for being one of the most historical of the Caribbean Island. The 18th century Great Fort George is a very important part of Antigua’s history from its days as a British Colony as well as Nelson’s Dockyard which is a wonderfully restored British naval base.
There are 365 beaches in Antigua – one for every day of the year and many of them among the best beaches in the Caribbean. Each beach in Antigua features different types of wave action, wind, sand and vegetation depending on its location. On the west coast, the beaches are exceptionally calm and many of them are protected by their own reef. On the other hand, the Atlantic side has a much rougher surf and sand. All beaches in Antigua are open to the public.
Frryes Beach is located on the west side of Antigua just over a mile south west of Jolly Harbour. It is one of the quieter beaches on the island and offers clear calm waters. As there is no reef or rocks here, it is a wonderful spot for swimming. Frryes Beach is the perfect spot if you want to escape from the busier beaches or parts of Antigua. It is not too far off Valley Road between Coco Beach and Darkwood Beach.
