Antigua and Barbuda Highlights
Antigua's tourist office boasts that the island has 365 beaches, 'one for each day of the year'. It has great reefs and wrecks for diving and snorkelling. On neighboring Barbuda you can track the island's fabled frigate birds and visit the Caribbean's largest rookery.
There is a brief respite from heavy rain between February and May; during this period temperatures hover around the 30°C (86°F) mark and there's slightly less humidity. The wet season peaks around August to October, when tropical hurricanes are also most likely.
