Get out and about on a family holiday in Antigua and enjoy everything from flying among the treetops to museums and cricket

Antigua is an ideal island for a family holiday in the Caribbean. First of all the flight – the shortest into the region – is direct, so there’s no hanging around, wilting in the heat, for an onward connection. And on a small island, the transfer to Starfish Jolly Beach Resortis just a hop and a skip, so you’ll be down by the water in no time…

You should definitely make sure to get out and explore the island. There are plenty of family-friendly tours and activities on Antigua. The Rainforest Zipline tour, set in the lushest area of the island, will have you flying among Antigua’s biggest trees. There is even a café suspended in the canopy.

Mountain-top citadels, naval dockyards, colonial city centres and preserved sugar plantations are among the atmospheric places that help unravel the mysteries of the Caribbean’s past and have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

Laced with tales of European conquistadores, fearsome pirates and Africans stolen from their homelands, each site helps piece together the region’s storied history and the lasting impact that had on the cultures that exist across the islands today. But aside from their historical significance, many of these heritage spots are worth visiting simply for their beautiful old architecture and unparalleled views.
