Antigua
As famous for its 365 beaches as it is for its Classic Yacht Regatta and Rolex Race Week, Antigua is a haven for sailors. A great starting point for yacht charters going either north or south……but you may find it difficult to say goodbye to Antigua.

There are many anchorages but its three famous harbours are Jolly Harbour, English Harbour and Falmouth Harbour. Nelson’s old naval Dockyard in English Harbour is a point of historical interest and beauty. There is also a museum dedicated to Admiral Nelson which has many well preserved artefacts.

From December to May there’s great nightlife to be found in English Harbour and nearby Shirley Heights is famous for its ‘jump-ups’.
