About Antigua and Barbuda


Antigua and Barbuda are two islands 39 miles away from each other, located between the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean. The two islands (Antigua being the bigger) together make the independent commonwealth country of Antigua and Barbuda with an English-speaking population of about 100,000 people.

Antigua and Barbuda has all the features one expects from a Caribbean island — crystal clear waters ideal for snorkelling and sailing, vast sandy beaches, and palm trees. The people of Antigua and Barbuda know that the prosperity of the country is thanks to the upmarket sustainable tourism industry. Thus, the locals are very protective and mindful of the natural environment — the ocean, endangered species, wildlife, coral reefs, etc..

The weather is very good in Antigua and Barbuda with winter temperatures between 23°C and 28°C and summer temperatures between 26°C and 31°C. Also, humidity is relatively low in comparison to other tropical islands. However, the island is exposed to hurricanes, droughts, and tropical storms.
