Tips for People Planning on Visiting Antigua This Year


When you ask people what they are dreaming of, the answers will likely vary, but somewhere in there, a sun-soaked trip to the Caribbean is lingering around. As such, it is no surprise that people worldwide decide to head over to Antigua for their holidays every year, especially now after the travel restrictions that were put in place throughout 2020 and 2021 have been lessened. If you are one of the individuals that is planning a trip to Antigua, then here are some tips that will be of great use before you head out.


Be Sure to Say the Name Right


You would be surprised just how many tourists head over to Antigua and are actually unable to say the name right. You might find that you are one of these people, so to be sure there is no confusion, the correct way to say it is:


  • Anti-ga (pronounced like Antee-gah)


  • A lot of people who say it wrong tend to say Anti-gwa (which is pronounced as Anti-guah and is not correct).


There Are Plenty of Places to Relax


Despite the fact Antigua is actually reasonably small (just 108 square miles in total and 13 miles across) Antigua still has a number of amazing places that you can go and relax. As such, if you are heading out on your holiday to totally chill out and put your feet up, you are heading to the right place. You will be able to find quiet peaceful spots all over, and here you can do whatever it is you like to do when you are chilling out. A popular option is to go on online casino sites such as those that are available at and try your hand at roulette, poker and slot machines.


There’s Only One Airport


Given the small size of Antigua, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that there is only one airport. This means that everyone who enters and leaves Antigua are going to do it via the same place (unless you are coming here on a cruise). A direct flight from somewhere such as London Gatwick will take around 8 – 9 hours, although of course, this will vary depending on where it is in the world that you will be flying from.


When you get to the airport, one of the easiest ways that you can get to your hotel is by hiring a private transfer vehicle. This is a service which tourists highly rate and it doesn’t cost much either (coming to an average of around $36 normally depending on the size of the group you are traveling with).




If you are heading over to Antigua for a little while, you will no doubt have a lovely time in what can only be described as a Caribbean paradise. Of course, there are some things that you could do to know before you go to improve your trip and ensure that it’s fantastic, and these are listed above.
