ACTION ANTIGUA 

FROM SNORKELLING TO OFF-ROADING...

Antigua's all about action and adventure too. What better way to experience our natural wonders than to snorkel off our coral reefs or motor through our scenic backwaters? These are just two of the many activities waiting for you outside your hotel...

 

Our 60-mile coastline is encircled by clear turquoise seas, whether that's the Atlantic in the east or the Caribbean in the west. You can enjoy these waters in any number of ways, most of our resorts offering non-motorised watersports, with instruction readily available for beginners. Adrenaline-pumping activities like jet skiing and waterskiing are on offer from our beach vendors, and we've got quite the flotilla of vessels at your disposal too. Our catamarans offer anything from snorkelling to sunset cruises, our powerboats can whisk you off to Barbuda in 90 minutes, or if you prefer a slower pace, why not kayak through the islet-studded North Sound?

Beneath the waves lies Cades Reef, this 2-mile barrier reef a 20-minute boat ride from our southwest coast. A snorkelling trip here could yield sightings of anything from puffer fish to sea turtles, our PADI diving professionals happy to introduce you to a whole raft of equally amazing dive sites. 

Antigua's also got 108 square miles of part-volcanic, part-coral land for you to explore. Our Fig Tree Drive rainforest is about as lush as it gets here, a zipline canopy tour an exhilarating way to experience it. For hikers and nature-lovers there are guided walks through Wallings Nature Reserve and challenging climbs up our very own mountain. At 1,320 feet, Boggy Peak is as high as you can get in Antigua without actually taking off. Although if you sign up for a helicopter trip, maybe to the nearby volcano on Montserrat, that’s an option as well...
