Antigua and Barbuda on a budget

95 miles of exquisite coastline surround Antigua’s seashore, which is nearly entirely washed by the Caribbean Sea. Her sister Barbuda, which has a sizable lagoon and a sanctuary for frigate birds, is protected by reefs. The islands are renowned for having the world’s most gratifying and enjoyable climate, friendly and inviting locals, pink and white sand beaches, crystal clear waterways, and friendly locals.


Around a thousand miles to the east of Jamaica and half that distance from Trinidad on the coast of South America, the Caribbean’s Antigua and Barbuda are two tropical islands. The islands are located at 61- W longitude and 17- N latitude, which is roughly the same as Bombay and the Cape Verde Islands.
