Antigua is situated in the West Indies, located 17°6N and 61°45W northwest of the Caribbean Sea. The capital city of St. John’s provides a refreshing change of pace and is overflowing with historic and cultural references.
This intimate and humble island, measuring 281km², is home to 365 beaches – one for every day of the year.
The climate in Antigua is arid, tropical maritime, which means it rarely rains. Any showers are usually short in duration. A lot of people believe the Caribbean is like Florida, which is far hotter during the summer than the rest of the year. The reality is that evening and daytime temperatures range between 72° to 86° Fahrenheit year round, and the wonderful trade winds add to the comfortable climate. Rarely is there a day without sunshine.
In short the weather in Antigua is almost perfect which when combined with waters temperatures averaging 78.8°F in the winter and 84.2°F in the summer make it the island paradise it is, and an ideal year-round vacation destination.
