What's Antigua Like?
Antigua is a tropical jewel within the Caribbean, surrounded by calm blue waters and gentle warm weather. There is enough to cater to all tastes, whether you are a sporty adventure seeker or would rather surround yourself with the local culture. There are plenty of famous locations and landmarks spread throughout the island, with some of the most idyllic being Stingray City snorkel adventure, Valley Church Beach, Half Moon Bay, and Pigeon Beach. A wealth of day time experiences and night life activities await, from scuba diving, to surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, segway tours and more. During the Summer months of June to August, the bays and harbors are home to several boating festivals such as the Charter Yacht Show, and Antigua Sailing Week. Other festivals such as the Antigue Carnival, the Annual Seafood festival, A & B International Kite festival, the Independence festival, and more occur throughout the year.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Antigua
Although temperatures average at 28°C in the Summer, conservative attire should be worn in the towns and cities, and camouflage clothing is prohibited. Typical beach wear (bikinis, shorts, t-shirtless) is entirely acceptable at the beach. Bear in mind that there is a $20 USD departure tax, which is around $54 local. The official language on the island is English, and there are even two United States operated schools in the area. As the island relies heavily on tourism, the locals will be friendly, however sometimes street vendors can be a little persistent; do not be afraid to be firm with them. Avoid traveling during September as it is the height of hurricane season.
