Here are the Top 5 things you must do on any visit to Antigua and Barbuda. How many of these have you completed?

 

Swim with Stingrays

Stingray City Antigua affords you the rare opportunity to swim alongside these majestic and prehistoric creatures. You don't want to miss an opportunity to swim with and feed these bad boys.

 

Try Black/Rice pudding from a road side vendor

Roadside vendors in Antigua and Barbuda have to be certified foodhandlers by the Central Board of Health so you can enjoy their delectable treats worry-free. While you can get a variety of local foods all week-long, the best cooks come out on the weekend. If you're adventurous, be sure to try black/rice pudding, a local favourite, made from pork fat, blood and intestines.

 

Kitesurf at Jabberwock Beach

It's like wakeboarding, but you're being towed by the wind instead of a powerboat. This extreme sport has found a home on the windy northern coast of Antigua where you can take kitesurfing lessons.

 

Watch (or play) a local sport

Didn't you know the best (and most competitive) athletes were from the Caribbean? When you're on island be sure to catch a local game of cricket, football or basketball. Your're in for a treat as locals get very, uh...passionate about their sports.

 

Visit Barbuda

Barbuda is a hidden gem and perfect for a day trip. Its great for a hike through caves, a boat ride to the frigate bird sanctuary or lounging on miles-long deserted pink beaches.
