“Once again, your support in this endeavour would be much appreciated as we continue to work for the betterment of the industry, “said the Facebook post of Antigua and Barbuda Tourism. 

The twin-island state located in the heart of the Eastern Caribbean has been popular with visitors from the United States and Europe for decades as they seek refuge under a palm tree during the blistering winter months. Many of these tourists decide to book cruises to the Caribbean with Antigua included in the itinerary. There are a host of ecotourism activities that cruise passengers can relish for a fun and fulfilling trip. 

With 365 benches, one for every day of the year, it would only make sense for there to be many beach-related activities for a cruise tourist visiting Antigua. For tourists who are interested in kayaking or canoeing, Antigun is the perfect destination to do so. Those who are looking for more of an adrenaline rush can also hop on a jet ski and take a ride in the vast waters of the Caribbean Sea. 

Visitors can also look at what goes on under the sea while snorkelling and even do this alongside the stingrays of Stingray City. Some visitors also enjoy getting off o mega cruise ship at Heritage Quay or the Nevis Street Pier in the capital, St. John’s, and going on a catamaran. 

These vessels often circumnavigate all 108 square miles off Antigua, providing breathtaking views of the island. But Antigua is also known as a romantic escape having been named the Caribbean’s Most Romantic Destination by the World Travel Awards multiple times.
