With a long and historic seafaring culture, Antigua hosts some of the Caribbean’s most famous sailing regattas. Antigua’s Sailing Week welcomes hundreds of world class yachts every year to compete for prizes and glory. English Harbour, a former British Navy base best known for Nelson’s Dockyard is now a centre of sailing excellence. The island also holds an annual boat show, at which international owners and skippers show off their latest mega yachts to the admiring audience.
St. Johns’ is Antigua’s charming capital, colourful and bustling with daily life as the locals go about their business. When large cruise ships dock at Redcliffe Quay & Heritage Quay, tourists disembark into port to patronize the plethora of local shops and cafes. Swim with stingrays, scare yourself at Devil’s Bridge or simply lie on a different beach every day of your vacation when you choose from our Antigua weddings.

Antigua Weddings: Flights
V.C. Bird International, in the north of the island, is the point of entry for visitors arriving by air for either Antigua weddings or those on the sister island of Barbuda. There are regular direct flights from the US and Europe, and both scheduled and charter services are available to many of the neighboring islands.
Antigua Weddings: Hotels
With accommodation ranging from high end luxury and couples all-inclusive to beachside family hotels, intimate inns and private villas, there is a wide variety of choices for couples planning Antigua weddings. Whatever your idea of the perfect tropical beach location, we can recommend a resort to suit all Antigua Weddings.
Antigua Weddings: Venues
Our favourite venues for Antigua weddings are, of course, beaches. Hermitage Bay is a tranquil, unspoilt gem on the west coast, while nearby Jolly Beach is well-named for its sense of tropical fun and excitement. But with 365 beaches to choose, never fear, we’ll find an unforgettable spot for each of our Antigua Weddings.
Delve into the fascinating history of the Caribbean when Horatio Nelson was master of the Dockyard, featuring restored 18th and 19th-century buildings and other artifacts from the British colonial period. At Shirley Heights overlooking English Harbour, explore the history and enjoy the local vibe, along with some excellent barbecue. Or why not learn about the rise and fall of sugar plantations on the Betty’s Hope tour? Antigua’s not only about beaches, after all!
