How to get there
A British Airways flight with a change of airport in London or a Lufthansa-Condor direct flight via Frankfurt.
The beaches of Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay are located on the developed and lively northwest coast and will suit those who are looking for a full-fledged resort holiday. Directly next to St. John’s are the popular open beaches of Fort James and Deep Bay. Galley Bay attracts surfers during the winter months. And having visited the “chain” of four beaches in Hawksbill, any observant tourist will even “by eye” determine which of them is nudist.
The southwestern and southern coasts of the island are less developed and more deserted. Unique pink sandy beaches stretch here for 15 km. These are the beaches of Fryes Bay, Darkwood Beach, and the beaches around Johnsons Point. The quietest and most deserted Rendezvous Bay and Doigs Beach are located in the center of the south coast. An international yacht port is located in the English Bay, and not far from it is the beautiful Pigeon Point beach.
Half Moon Bay beach on the southeast coast of the island has been converted to national park status, but is still a good place for family vacations. At the easternmost point of the island, there is another beach ideal for families with children, separated from the open sea by coastal reefs.
In the northern part of the island of Antigua, known as “Dickenson’s Bay”, there are many hotels and resorts. In the south, there are deserted, secluded beaches. The bays and natural harbors offer good conditions for diving, snorkelling, windsurfing and deep sea fishing.
Visa to Antigua and Barbuda
Like all relaxed and relaxing exotic islands, Antigua and Barbuda lets you into its blessed expanses without any visas. Citizens of Russia can stay on the islands for 30 days, while there are no restrictions on movement around the country – visit even Antigua, even Barbuda, even Redonda. At the same time, there are still simple requirements for documents: in the form of a voucher for tourist services and a 6-month “reserve” of a passport. In a word, come – I don’t want to (of course, if there is a sufficient amount on the current account).
Do not forget to take out medical insurance for the entire duration of the trip. Although the policy is not asked when entering the country, it is at least unreasonable to travel without it.
