Antigua is only 11 miles wide and 14 miles long yet offers 365 beaches. The year-round temperature hovers in the 70s and 80s. So understandably, over half of Antigua’s economy is derived from tourism. The deep harbor at St. John’s welcomes one-day visitors from cruise ships. Or if you prefer to spend several days basking in the Caribbean sun, then there is an excellent selection of resorts, hotels and cabins to pick from.
