I have visited Antigua many times, both as a solo traveller and with others.  The welcome and warmth received by the Antiguan people never fails to impress me.  It is a small island, measuring approximately 14 miles long by 11 miles wide, but there is a lot to do here other than visiting beaches.  Although they are stunning and there are 365 of them!  Click on the links below for further information on where I recommend if you are travelling solo to Antigua…

On my solo holidays to Antigua I have reviewed several all inclusive and room only 3 and 4 star resorts.  Some of the resorts are ‘adults only’.  All of them have the use of a pool or are located on a stunning beach.

Up in the hills of Cedar Valley is a wonderful studio apartment available for rent, within the grounds of a family home/cookery school.  Ideal size for a couple or single person – why not combine your stay with one of the fantastic cookery lessons available here at Nicole’s Table.

The restaurants within the all inclusive resorts generally serve food of a good standard leaving you feeling that you have no need to venture out.  But there are many restaurants to try off resort as well.  I have reviewed several  while on my solo holidays.  Read about some of the ones I recommend by clicking on the link.

There are many activities in Antigua as well as enjoying the beautiful beaches.  Please do book activities via the hotels and onsite tour desks as they deal with reputable companies.

365 beaches, one for every day of the year.  There are so many stunning beaches to choose from.  Some are great for watersports, pure relaxation, clothing optional or watching sunsets.
