Let’s follow Travelista Teri as she travels to Antigua, to discover the culture, lifestyle, and the beauty of the island. She visits the tallest peak, chats with the locals and explores one of the islands 365 beaches. Nice work Teri!
I thought a nice tour of the beautiful island of Antigua would be a nice way to break in a Monday. Just a little something to clear the cobwebs.
Antigua has a land area of 108 sq. miles located at latitude 17° 5′ North and longitude 61° 45′ West in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.
Antigua is about 13 miles across with a coastline peppered with numerous coves and bays, many with beautiful white-sand beaches. The south-west corner is hilly, rising to 402 meters at Boggy Peak, the island’s highest point.
Barbuda, a low-lying coral island is located 32 miles north of Antigua and has a land area of approximately 64 sq. miles. Barbuda encompasses the expansive Codrington lagoon, which is bound by a long undeveloped beach.
The country’s boundaries also include Redonda, and uninhabited rocky islet less than 1 sq. mile in size which lies 32 miles south-west of Antigua.
