    Antigua & Barbuda consist of two major islands and a number of smaller islands lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The shorelines of both islands are greatly indented with beaches, lagoons, and natural harbors. The islands are rimmed by reefs and shoals.
    This sun-soaked Caribbean beauty is also one of the Caribbean’s most prosperous nations, thanks to its tourism industry and offshore financial services. It is also popular for the magnificent ‘carnival’ a ten- day festival of colorful costumes, beauty pageants and especially good music.

    Life in Antigua is and quiet; a walk on the beach every day and spend your days in beautiful indolence. Just 20 minutes by air or three hours by boat from Antigua, Barbuda makes its big sister look like a hub of activity.
