Antigua & Barbuda

Islands, rich in history, & one of the favorite yachting & charter destinations of the Caribbean. Antigua & Barbuda are small islands in the Eastern Caribbean, 27 miles apart but with one government. Populated by Amerindians at the time Columbus sailed to the "New World," they were not settled by Europeans until the Earl of Carlyle claimed them for England in 1625. Although independence was granted in 1981, evidence of British colonial influence can be spotted everywhere. In addition to having a rich history, illuminated by resident Desmond Nicholson's historical essay, Antigua is well known as the yachting & charter center of the Caribbean. One can cruise around Antigua & Barbuda for two weeks without stopping at the same anchorage twice.
