Perched on the southern coast of the gorgeous Leeward Island of Antigua and the eastern corner of its Sherkerley Mountains, the town of Falmouth sits, overlooking the glorious clear waters of Deep Bay and the natural horse-shoe silhouette of Falmouth Harbour.
With 365 beaches (one for each day of the year) spanning its coast, a holiday to Antigua offers pristine white sands, azure shores and waves that vary from paddle-friendly to surf-worthy, denoting its significance as the ultimate beach bum paradise. Antigua’s proximity to the equator and tropics additionally make for one of the most temperate climates in the world; sun-worshippers are certainly in for a treat, with a year-long heat that lacks uncomfortable humidity.
When you’re not busy soaking up the outstanding Caribbean sunshine (and with beaches like these, we can hardly blame you!), take time to explore Antigua’s vast history around the nearby English Harbour - the Royal Navy’s base for operations in the Victorian colonial era – and its restored naval station: ‘Nelson’s Dockyard’. While still referred to as 'the only working Georgian dockyard in the world', the dockyard (named for Captain Horatio Nelson) now flourishes as a yachting centre, marking it as the perfect setting for the annual Antigua Sailing Week regatta at the end of April.
The possibilities are endless in the beach nirvana of Falmouth. Captivated by the Caribbean? Be inspired by our Antigua holiday packages below!
