More about your Antigua holiday...
The island is surrounded by coral reef, providing safe haven for diverse marine life and excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. Find a magnificent parrotfish wending its way around the coral. Nearby Barbuda is home to a bird sanctuary, and the uninhabited Redonda is a nature preserve. Antigua has incredible wildlife; little yellow birds named bananaquilts flit about the island, dining on their eponymous fruit and for the most part ignoring their human neighbours. Antigua was possibly so named by Christopher Columbus, after a Spanish church named Santa Maria la Antigua, or St Mary the Ancient. Its indigenous inhabitants called the island Wadadli, which means ‘our own’. Largest of the Leeward Islands, Antigua offers almost 90 miles of pristine coastline to its residents and visitors.
