Luxury hotel holiday The Verandah Antigua

Expressions Holidays recommends the four star Verandah as a great value, all inclusive, family resort, fringed by the dramatic Devil's Bridge National Park. There are plenty of activities to keep the children happy, from the range of swimming pools through to the innovative and lively kids' club. Parents can unwind and indulge at the signature spa, "Tranquility", or the more adventurous can enjoy the multitude of beach, land, and water sports, not to mention the national park's hiking trails.

Highlights of Antigua

Cricket is the national sport of Antigua. Wadadli is the local beer. There are an exceptional number of places of interest to visit including museums, quaysides, old plantations. Some examples are Parham Harbour and St Peter’s Church, Betty’s Hope old sugar plantation and Harmony Hall, restored Great House with a craft centre. Falmouth, English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard is one of the most picturesque and beautiful harbour areas in the Caribbean. A few of the outstanding beaches on the island include Dickenson Bay, Soldiers Bay, Hawksbill Beach, Galleon Beach and Darkwood Beach. Carnival is at the end of July. Fig Tree drive between Old Road and Liberta is through the rainforest.

Travel around Antigua

The roads are fine except for a few potholes. Car hire is easily arranged and highly recommended. Traffic on a Saturday can be quite heavy in St John’s but you can find parking places. Distances are not too great so it really is easy to get around. Signposting is lacking, and an ordnance survey map is more accurate than tourist maps provided locally.
