In an effort to celebrate and preserve its cultural heritage, Antigua has revitalised several key festivals. The annual Antigua Carnival, set for late July, promises parades, musical performances, and local cuisine.

The carnival is a vibrant display of the island’s music, dance, and traditional clothing, drawing participants and spectators from around the world.

The Heritage Quay, located in the heart of the capital St John’s, is a focal point for local food and souvenirs, and fashion and jewellery shops.

Antigua is also making strides in sustainable tourism, with initiatives aimed at preserving its natural beauty while promoting eco-friendly travel.

The introduction of electric shuttle buses in key tourist areas and a ban on single-use plastics are part of the government’s comprehensive plan to reduce the island’s carbon footprint.

Hotels and resorts are encouraged to adopt green practices, with many already integrating solar energy and water conservation measures.

With increased flight connections from major European and American cities, getting to Antigua has never been easier. Travellers can hop on a direct flight from Gatwick Airport to V.C. Bird International Airport for an easy escape this summer.
