Antigua and Barbuda

 

The blue-skies are reflected in the sapphire waters of Antigua and Barbuda

 

It doesn’t matter where you go in life…as long as you go the beach. Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, and live the good life on Antigua. This jagged edged island is ringed with beaches of the finest white sand, made all the more dramatic by the sapphire waters. The island has warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Antigua, the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands, is about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide.

And the fascinating little island of Barbuda—once a scavenger’s paradise because so many ships wrecked on its reefs—is now home to one of the region’s most significant bird sanctuaries. Barbuda, a flat coral island with an area of only 68 square miles, lies approximately 30 miles due north. The nation also includes the tiny (0.6 square mile) uninhabited island of Redonda, now a nature preserve.

Location: Caribbean, islands between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east-southeast of Puerto Rico.

Area: 171 square miles (Antigua 108 square miles; Barbuda 6.2 square miles). About 2.5 times the size of Washington, DC.

Population: 92,436 (July 2015 est.)

Capital: Saint John’s

Geography: Antigua has a deeply indented shoreline with many natural harbors and beaches; Barbuda has a large western harbor.

Climate: Tropical maritime; little seasonal temperature variation.
