Travel Notes: Latin America: Caribbean: Antigua: St John's


The capital, St John's, is on the north-western coast of Antigua and also serves as the country's principal port.

St John's, Antigua

English colonists from St Kitts settled here in 1632, and St John's started to expand the following year when more colonists arrived from England.

Antigua was the West Indies base of the Royal Navy in the 18th century. The Court House was established in 1747, and visitors can still see the remains of Fort James (1703).

If you arrive by boat, the white baroque towers of St. John's Cathedral will be one of the first things you see in the skyline.

The Cathedral and many picturesque houses and streets make a stroll in town a pleasure.

Things To See in Antigua:
Antigua has a rich history to be explored. Start in St. John's, where the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda is housed; in the old Court House, at the corner of Long and Market Streets.

Historic Antigua

English Harbour

Antigua's graceful and evocative historic district, is focused on the fifteen square miles of Nelson's Dockyard National Park.

Nelson's Dockyard National Park:
Whether it's history, beaches, shopping, nightlife, dining, or sporting activities that you're looking for, all can be found within the park's ten square miles; running from Mamora Bay along English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour, past Rendezvous Bay and on to Carlisle Bay in the south.

Antigua & Barbuda Beaches:
There are 365 beaches on Antigua, one for every day of the year. If you've only got a fortnight, that leaves a lot of choice.
