Stingray City

The trip to Stingray City is one of the most popular things to do in Antigua. Just a five-minute speedboat ride off the island’s east coast, Stingray City is a shallow pool with a sandy bottom amid a tropical reef, where hundreds of friendly southern stingrays glide through the crystal-clear waters waiting to be fed by visitors. 

Nelson’s Dockyard National Park

A hot spot for tourists, and packed with multiple attractions, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park is a tourist delight.   Its main claim to fame is that it remains the only continuously operating Georgian dockyard in the world and it was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in July, 2016.

Soak up the ambience by wandering around all of the restored stone warehouses, which contrast strikingly with the glitzy superyachts in the marina. Most of these old buildings are now home to hotels, restaurants, shops, and galleries.

17 Mile Beach Barbuda
