(ST. JOHN’S, ANTIGUA) October 19, 2021 – The twin-island paradise of Antigua and Barbuda continues to be the perfect place for visitors seeking a well-needed vacation. With increased vaccination rates for Covid-19 in the country, on-island restrictions have been eased. This means visitors can look forward to enjoying some newly re-opened tourism experiences.
Plan your perfect day, on one of Antigua and Barbuda’s gorgeous beaches. The warm and crystal-clear waters are therapeutic, and there is lots of room for social distancing. New opening hours for all 365 beaches are from 5 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily, providing lots of time to unwind under flowing palm trees.
Water excursions are also now officially open, for those eager to leave the sun-kissed shores behind and jet-off on the water for an exhilarating adventure. Sail to Antigua’s sister-island Barbuda, for a visit to the Magnificent Frigatebird Sanctuary or drop anchor within reach of a deserted beach. Back in Antigua, enjoy relaxed kayaking, a circumnavigation cruise, snorkelling in clear, turquoise waters and the abundance of available water-based activities that stretch across the coastline. Land-based excursions continue to operate.
Following a short break, restaurant tables are now set for re-opened dine-in service. Fully vaccinated food aficionados can completely immerse themselves in Antigua and Barbuda’s rich, culinary experience in picturesque settings with extraordinary service.
Keen to take in the beauty of Antigua and Barbuda at night? With shortened curfew hours, visitors are welcomed to spend more time under the stars as businesses open late into the night. Present curfew hours are from 11 p.m. – 5 a.m.
Visitors should observe all covid-19 protocols during their stay and are encouraged to book only Covid-19 certified businesses such as restaurants and excursions during their trip.
