Antigua and Barbuda: colorful Caribbean islands

Life in Antigua and Barbuda revolves around the beach. Long stretches of powdery sand, secluded little coves and sweeping bays – whatever kind you're into, you'll find them in these Caribbean Islands. Though you'll find some British influence here, the islands are typically Caribbean. Expect brightly colored homes, rum punch beach shacks and some fresh seafood, cooked in the perfect way – on the top of smoky drum barbeques. Life here ticks away at a different pace and your trip can be as quiet or action-packed as you want it to be when you stay in an Antigua and Barbuda vacation rental.

There's adventures waiting in Antigua and Barbuda

You can take your pick from adventures both on and off the sea when you stay in an Antigua and Barbuda vacation rental. The deep blue ocean, calm waters and consistent sea breeze make for ideal sailing conditions. If renting your own yacht is a little out of reach, you could always try kite surfing or windsurfing instead. It would be unthinkable to visit these Caribbean islands without exploring what lurks below the ocean and those who do aren't disappointed by the coral reefs' residents. Back on dry land, the interior rainforest lends itself nicely to adventures like zip-lining or ATV quad bike racing.

Things to do away from Antigua and Barbuda beaches

Most people booking up Antigua and Barbuda vacation rentals come for the sun, sea and sand, but that doesn't mean you have to be a beach bum for a week. Nelson's Dockyard was the home of Admiral Horatio Nelson during the late 18th century and is now open, after being painstakingly restored. You can find more history at the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, which houses everything from famous cricket bats to information on the islands' natural history, or St John's Cathedral, which has been rebuilt 3 times since its inception in 1845.

Escape the winter blues in Antigua and Barbuda

Like most Caribbean Islands, the high season falls between December and April. During the winter months, the threat of rainfall is slim, the skies are blue and the beaches are at their most alluring. That said, it does come with a higher price tag and the crowds reach their peak. The odd afternoon shower is a small price to pay for rock-bottom Antigua and Barbuda vacation rental prices and far fewer travelers taking up room on the sand. Whichever time of year you decide to visit, the temperature rarely drops below the 80s.

Birdwatchers are in luck in Antigua and Barbuda

Other than the odd feral goat and a few amphibians, you're not going to find much in the way of land-dwelling wildlife on the islands. Birdwatchers will have better luck though, with over 180 recorded species, from hummingbirds to flycatchers. If wildlife spotting is important when you stay in an Antigua and Barbuda vacation rental, you'll need to look to the surrounding ocean. The marine life-rich waters teem with life, from sea turtles to shoals of colorful fish. If you come in the right season, you'll likely spot one of the humpback whales that migrate through here every year.
