A relatively new trend has taken hold in the island of Antigua and it entails lots of dirt, a fair bit of mud and a lot of adrenaline. Off-roading on ATVs or Quads as they are locally called is now a common weekend activity and several rental agencies now offer these four-wheeled bikes for visitors to tour the island by means of rougher back roads.Since there aren't any established road maps which cater for off-roading, persons on a time limit such as cruise ship passengers should consider booking an ATV tour complete with a local guide, rather than attempting the mission alone.For the more adventurous individual, there is no shortage of dirt tracks, and seeing where the road ...Read More

Dow's Hill in English Harbour is one of the best places along the South-Western coast of Antigua to witness a beautiful sunset. It's located in the heart of the village and overlooks different angles of the bay, including a magnificent aerial view of Nelson's Dockyard.The road leading up the hill is well paved and it constantly winds towards the summit. On the way up, there's thick vegetation of mostly acacia and cacti plants.

Quote:
Situated along the Southern indented coastline of Antigua, is a small bit of paradise known as South Coast Horizons. The property has several guest houses for visitors, a small and somewhat eccentric garden and a tiny petting zoo of sorts. The name fits the establishment perfectly, as the nearby islands of Guadeloupe and Montserrat can easily be seen on the horizon on clear days, and the overall seascape is nothing short of amazing.It's not a seaside property, but there are views of the sea from almost every section of the property, as it's located on an incline near the coast. For guests who would like to visit the beach, there are two ways for this to be done. The easy way would obvi...Read More

If you happen to have a long transfer at the V. C. Bird International Airport in Antigua, you may be wondering how to go about passing the time. At such a small island airport, much of the expected bells and whistles aren't available as yet, since their building a new terminal but one its greater qualities is the Antigua Athletic Club.Located a short five minute walk from the airport terminal but still completely within the airport grounds, this up to date fitness centre just may be the best way to conquer jet lag and get your blood pumping before you have to board your next flight.Outfitted with the very best equipment, achieving a total body workout in a short period of time...Read More

Antigua's fish market is the typical scene which one expects to find in the Caribbean. For visitors who make the trip to the Vegetable Market and Craft Market Complex just across the street, this may be the next likely stop if they're willing to inhale the scent of fresh seafood.Much like the Vegetable Market, this is where many locals congregate on Saturday mornings to shop for the freshest produce from the sea. Whether it be a housewife searching for snapper for her Sunday dinner, or a small restaurant owner placing orders for his establishment, all walks of life blend together to see what the fishermen were able to capture with their nets.The Fish Market is located next to...Read More
