Antigua and Barbuda

Neighboring Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda does not have much in common with her. Here is an island of English culture (cricket in the spotlight!) Rather flat, now without sugar. Idyllic beaches, among the finest in the Caribbean, are Antigua and Barbuda a great family destination. Powdery white as snow, beaches are lapped by turquoise waters milky, whose intensity is hard to believe - so tropical cocktail. 

On the south coast of Antigua and Barbuda, there Français Harbour, the main British naval base in the West Indies in the eighteenth century, a time under the authority of Admiral Nelson. A water sports it is installed, bathed in a lovely colonial feel very British. English Harbour has become a rallying point of reference for all yachts sailing in Caribbean waters. 

Natural side, Antigua and Barbuda, it is the uninhabited islets in the North Sound Marine Park and, especially, the extraordinary Barbuda, sister island. A paradise untouched by mass tourism, populated by 1,500 people, highlighted by reefs and endless beaches, lined with pink sand of crushed shells, as in dreams. North of the great Codrington Lagoon, mangrove, the colony of frigates of Man o War Island is the largest in the world outside the Galapagos.
