    Antigua and Barbuda is an island nation located in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. Antigua (IPA: [æn'ti?g?]) and Barbuda (IPA: [b?r'bju?d?]) are located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, roughly 17 degrees north of the equator. Antigua and Barbuda are part of the Lesser Antilles archipelago with the archipelago of Guadeloupe to the south, Montserrat to the southwest, Saint Kitts and Nevis to the west and Saint Barthélemy and Saint Martin to the northwest.

    Brief History of Antigua

    Antigua was first inhabited by the Siboney ("stone people"), whose settlements date at least to 2400 BC. The Arawaks--who originated in Venezuela and gradually migrated up the chain of islands now called the Lesser Antilles--succeeded the Siboney. The warlike Carib people drove the Arawaks from neighboring islands but apparently did not settle on either Antigua or Barbuda.

    Said to have 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, we haven't counted them but you'll be spoilt for choice; there's everything from pretty scalloped coves to wondrous deserted stretches, with pounding surf and artful driftwood. Antigua has a maritime heritage going back to Nelson's day and still has some of the best sailing in the Caribbean. Exchange fishy tales in the famed yachties' bars and don't forget the Sunday party at Shirley Heights: the whole island is invited!

    Antigua and Barbuda offer a charming escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Antigua's capital city, St John's, is reminiscent of 18th-century England and its coastline is abundant with pristine, sandy beaches. Barbuda is half the size of Antigua and relatively untouched by development with a distinct call to nature, with coral-tinted pink sand and turquoise water.
