The Caribbean - Antigua

Ready to make the switch from the daily grind to daily pleasures of cruising, swimming, diving, fishing and sunbathing — topped off by fine dining and some fine Caribbean rum?

Antigua – Top Yacht Charter Destination

Blissful Antigua — one of the three islands constituting Antigua and Barbuda — can deliver this, and a whole lot more. We know this for sure: there are 365 beaches on the island, which means you get to try a different one every day of the year.

A great spot to start your epic adventure is bustling Pigeon’s Point Beach, a renowned snorkelling hotspot. It is conveniently located just five minutes away from English Harbour, with its picturesque restaurants, panoramic views, state-of-the-art marinas, and clutch of fascinating museums.

If you feel the need to get away from it all and enjoy some tranquillity and isolation, Darkwood Beach or Crab Hill Bay, on the southwestern part of the island, are both highly recommended. The sunsets are particularly impressive here — perfect spots to sip on a chilled cocktail and ponder your good fortune. Of course, any place of unusual scenic beauty will attract tourist crowds in high summer, but a yachting vacation offers freedom of movement to come and go when it suits your itinerary.

antigua – THINGS TO DO

Antigua is popular with anglers and if landing a tarpon or snook is your idea of fun, then contact the team at Overdraft & H2O Antigua Fishing. They will provide you with the ideal craft, equipment and knowledgeable guide for your fishing excursion. The local creeks and bays abound with fish, so you could easily end up cooking your own fish dinner.

If you lean more towards admiring the marine world, then get up close and personal with Black Durgons, sea turtles, schools of barracuda, sponge formations, lobsters, rays and tiger groupers. Dockyard Divers will provide you with all the equipment you need. The team will escort you to stunning diving sites to marvel at the abundant underwater marine life, and enjoy exploring as many fissures, clefts, boulders, reefs and caves as you can.

Of course shopaholics are also generously catered for. You can pick up high-end watches and exquisite jewellery for excellent prices in Antigua’s duty-free shops. Fancy a new pair of diamond earrings, or been thinking of spoiling your loved one with a brand-new luxury watch, pop into Diamonds International in St John’s.


When you’ve built up an appetite from all your activities, English Harbour, in the extreme south of the island, lays on a generous array of fine-dining experiences.

Catherine’s Café Plage lures diners with its lobster risotto (though its steaks and mouth-watering sauces will also tantalise). Its plating is stylish, the service efficient but friendly, and the ambience quintessentially Caribbean. And if you think it can’t get any better than this, you can kick off the evening’s festivities by sipping on a cocktail on one of Catherine’s beach beds or hammocks.

But it’s not just English Harbour that offers gourmet delights. Head north to St Johns for delectable dining at Hemingway’s Caribbean Café or Roti King, both serving traditional food in an authentically Caribbean setting.

Sheer Rock in St Mary’s, on the western part of the island, successfully blends luxury ambience and style, with rustic, finger-licking food. If you fancy the sight of deep orange sunsets and pelicans diving as you tuck into your dinner, reserve a table overlooking the sea.


Whether you want to whisk your beloved away on a second honeymoon to Antigua, treat a group of friends to a dream vacation or impress new business associates to a corporate event-with-a-difference, a luxury yacht trip will exceed your wildest expectations.

Our friendly Abberley charter brokers will be happy to provide you with every detail you need to plan a dream trip. Whether you are looking for classic sailing yacht or an state-of-the-art motor yacht, give us a call or leave a message in the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
