Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua & Barbuda are twin islands that form their own country in the Caribbean Sea. In 1784, the British Royal Army claimed Antigua as a Navy base. The unbroken coral reef offered a protective barrier, while the warm winds and winding coastline offered comfort and safety.

Antigua FlagUpon declaring the country’s independence in 1981, Antigua became part of the British Commonwealth – formally the Commonwealth of Nations – with Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning monarch. To this day, Antigua is a full member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

Today, the tiny island of Barbuda is the nesting ground for thousands of birds. Antigua, with its ever-gorgeous coral reef, is a destination for divers and explorers alike. The capital of Antigua, St John’s, is the commercial center of the island. Collectively, Antigua and Barbuda boast about 365 beaches of clean turquoise waters and magnificent rainforests. The warm, welcoming breeze and beautiful vistas attract celebrities like Robert De Niro and Oprah Winfrey, who frequently visit the country.

Tourism, which makes up around 60% of the country’s economy, is the main industry. Antigua and Barbuda’s economy also benefits from solid financial services and agriculture sectors.
