Guadeloupe is able to offer paradisiacal sites all year round. On board a Catamaran, it is possible to sail on the Island of Antigua for a memorable vacation. To enjoy a stay in the best conditions, it is advisable to think of an additional itinerary idea. Besides the famous English Harbour and Freeman Bay, there are other heavenly places to discover.
Falmouth Harbour and Jolly Harbour
With an extensive shipyard and three huge marinas, Falmouth Harbour is becoming a very active yachting center with sailboats and motor yachts of all sizes complementing each other. A walk ashore is necessary to uncover the fascinating history of the swirling cave of Antigua, used by the British fleet for about two centuries. Jolly Harbour is a large marina on the Antigua Coast. As for activities, the 18-hole golf course, the casino, the squash, and tennis courts along with a beautiful white sandy beach near the harbor offer the opportunity to relax on land.
Great Bird Island and its biodiversity
Generally perceived as a fantastic deserted island, Great Bird is perfect for your Caribbean cruise project. Snorkeling lighthouses are plentiful, and the panoramic views from the island are distinctly unreal. Great Bird offers beautiful scenery in a temperate setting, a boater’s paradise, and a haven for several endangered species such as the tropical red-billed bird and the West Indian whistling duck. Great Bird is one of the small islands that make up the northern Sound National Park. Nearby Rabbit Island is home to the earth-colored pelicans, while Long Island, the largest in the archipelago, has been the site of a successful loggerhead turtle conservation project.
Dickenson Bay and the wonderful Green Island
Located at the northern tip of Antigua, Dickenson Bay is one of the best resorts in the region, with a wide range of quality hotels. The wide sandy beach at the end of the bay is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, and relaxing in one of the beachside bars. Dickenson Bay is also known for windsurfing and offers a variety of water sports. Near the coast, uninhabited islets emerge from the coral reefs. These islets are home to beautiful snorkeling spots. Off the eastern shore of Antigua is the wonderful refuge of Green Island, an uninhabited islet that has always been in its natural state. Known in the Caribbean for water sports activities, it is easy to find several anchorages where you can observe fascinating birds in a seldom-visited paradise.
