Antigua & Barbuda
Antigua and Barbuda are located in the heart of the Caribbean, surrounded by the island of Montserrat and Guadaloupe, Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Barts, and St. Martin.
Known as the “Island of Beaches” Antigua & Barbuda are surrounded by pristine beaches of clean turquoise waters, soft breezes, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef which makes tourism its key industry. The current population for the nation is approximately 68,000 and its capital is St. John’s on Antigua. The currency is East Caribbean Dollar which is pegged to the US Dollar.
The Island is internationally famous for its yachting and sailing destination and provisioning center. During Antigua Sailing Week, at the end of April and the beginning of May, the annual world-class regatta brings many sailing vessels and sailors to the island to play sports.
