More About Antigua


The extensive archipelago of cays and islets attracted settlers to Antigua more than 4,000 years ago. The island is one of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean that became an independent state in 1981. Along the south-eastern coast is English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard, a restored British colonial naval station that draws visitors from all over the world.

When it comes to beaches, there are 365, one for each day of the year! And with all that surrounding water, it's no surprise that popular activities include sailing, sport fishing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. English Harbour and Falmouth are popular sailing destinations that bring sailing vessels and sailors to the island during the annual Antigua Sailing Week.

General Safety Tips: By taking a few simple security precautions before and during your vacation, you can help ensure that you, your traveling companions, and your valuables are as safe and secure as possible.
  • To make it easier to replace your passport if it’s lost or stolen, in addition to your passport, take a photocopy of your passport information page (keeping it separate from your actual passport).
  • Carry only a limited amount of cash, just enough for gratuities and incidental purchases. Major credit cards are widely accepted and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • Always lock your hotel room door (including patio and balcony door on any level of the building) and use the peephole before opening the door.
  • Store your valuables (such as cash, credit cards and airline tickets) in the hotel’s in-room safe or front desk safety deposit box.
  • If you must carry valuables on your person, do so in a pouch or money belt concealed under your clothing. Purses and backpacks can be easy targets for thieves.
  • For complete and current safety and security information, including travelers' tips, public announcements, travel advisories and more, please visit the Government of Canada official website at

Transportation: Public transportation and taxis are available on all islands.

Attire: Dress is informal but conservative. Casual wear is acceptable, except in certain hotels, restaurants, or nightclubs where a dress code is required - such as a jacket and tie, collared shirt, slacks, and closed-toe shoes for men; dresses, a blouse with nice shorts or skirt, and high heels/platforms, or nice sandals for women. Walking around the hotel or town in a t-shirt and shorts is okay, but beach attire is not appropriate to wear in town, casinos, churches, restaurants, and shops - away from the beach or pool area, you are expected to cover your bathing suit. In the more laid-back, remote areas, the dress code may be more flexible. During the day, it is warm to hot - clothes made of lightweight, natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk are ideal. In the evenings, it tends to be cooler - you may want a jacket, sweater, long-sleeve top, or long trousers.


Sargassum/Seaweed Advisory

Sargassum is a free-floating seaweed that is especially prolific in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. While beneficial to ocean life, these large free-floating seaweed mats often wash up on beaches. The amount of seaweed on the beaches fluctuates based on the time of year and ocean currents. While resorts do their best to maintain the beaches for their guests, you may experience some inconvenience during your stay.
