  32. 32. Antigua Whilst Antigua’s famous white sand beaches are the island’s primary attraction, its appeal is far more complex than that. Scenically, it falls somewhere between Grenada and the Virgin Islands, incorporating panoramic seascapes, tropical rainforests and cacti-dotted hillsides. Despite its ongoing flirtation with gourmet restaurants and designer boutiques, its longstanding love affair with the sea keeps it friendly, relaxed and totally unpretentious. If you plan to sightsee, the best way to deal with the ubiquitous potholes is to hire a Jeep with good suspension. And, don’t forget your sense of adventure as signposts are scarce, although if you have to ask for directions the locals will become lifelong friends if you drop cricketing hero, Viv Richards, into the conversation! Aim for Nelson’s Dockyard, Shirley Heights, Half Moon Bay, Fig Tree Drive and St John’s harbour-front shops and you’ll see the best the island has to offer.
