Antiguans will tell you that there are 365 beaches on Antigua, one for every day of the year and it’s not hard to see why with a never-ending perimeter of gorgeous white sand beaches surrounding the island.
Antigua is a popular Caribbean holiday destination with tourists from the UK with December to February being the high season. A more relaxed atmosphere than many of its Caribbean neighbours, this island boasts history, culture and some of the friendliest inhabitants you could meet.

All of our Cuba resorts are located in Varadero, a 13-mile long peninsula of white sand and clear, blue seas. Varadero is Cuba’s top seaside destination, located on the north side of the country.
