Finding a resort in Antigua
By Tony Savour
If you ask people where their dream holiday would be, what is the most frequent response that you think you will get? Well everybody I seem to ask give me the same rough answer, being the Caribbean. As soon as they say this I completely agree with them even if they have never been and have just seen pictures. I was exactly like this before I went on a holiday there and now I have I must say, I completely agree still and cant wait to go back.
But I would have to say that the resort in Antigua where I stayed was by far the best I have ever seen and would not hesitate going back there at all. In fact I am thinking about booking my next holiday there already because I loved it so much.
I went to quite a small resort in Antigua but the scenery and looks and well just about everything was absolutely perfect! I couldn't have asked much more from a resort in Antigua. I do not even want to go and look at other islands in the Caribbean region at the moment I want to explore Antigua and let me tell you why.
Antigua has 365 beaches around the island even though it is only 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, so there is constantly somewhere to go exploring. You can definitely see nowhere near everything you will ant to in just one week so you may want to take a bit longer out there. Even if you stay out there longer and do nearly everything you can you are still going to want to stay in a resort in Antigua for even longer. When I went I really did not want to leave at all.
The weather is very, very nice all year round so you will be able to relax in a resort in Antigua in the warm sun with nice warm breezes and steady winds all year round. Around the island is nearly unbroken coral reef which is absolutely amazing for snorkelling and diving which you will want to do time and time again as it gets better every time if that is even possible.
One of the days you are in your resort in Antigua you may want to get a rental car so that you are able to travel around and explore the amazing island on your own and find places that many tourists do not go to. If you want to do this it is not very expensive and is the best way to get about the island. All you need to be able to do this is either an international drivers license or a license from the country you reside from. As well you are going to need a permit to drive in Antigua which most of the rental companies can help you get and only costs around $20. The best bit if you are British is that in Antigua they drive on the left side of te road so it is just like home.
