Twin-Island Paradise

Antigua & Barbuda is a lovely twin-island paradise famous for having a beach for every day of the year. That’s correct – 365 powdery white-sand beaches. Which from above, looks like an artist outlined both islands in white and beautiful turquoise.

Beyond the shores, you’ll find world-class reefs and dive sites. And further out, the trade-wind kissed seas have earned the title, “Sailing Capital of the Caribbean.” Prefer to stay dry? Barbuda boasts a world class bird sanctuary with the largest colony of Frigate Birds in the western hemisphere and over 170 other species. Nature-lovers welcome too!

Antigua & Barbuda is as versatile as it is beautiful. Food-lovers, party-goers, romantics, adventure-seekers – all have a place here. So come for the wedding, stay for the honeymoon, and know that your wedding party won’t have a dull day unless they choose to.
