    Caribbean - Antigua

    Travelogue:

    We had the great fortune to be hired to do an Antigua photo shoot, and were given an in-depth tour of the island by an Antiguan citizen. Antigua (pronounced "antiga" by the locals) is somewhat unspoiled, quieter and less traveled than many of the other Caribbean islands, yet it does have excellent accommodations ranging from quaint bed and breakfasts to large full-service resorts. Antiguans boast of their island having 365 beaches, one for each day of the year. While we did not count the beaches, there are certainly a lot of them, and all picture-postcard beautiful. The sand is pure white, the water is aqua blue and palm trees are abundant.

    In Antigua, smiles come easily.

    Antigua has a rich history, with it's Danish and British heritage. Ruins of forts, sugar plantation and windmills dot the island. Perhaps the best preserved of the old architecture is Nelson's Dockyard, a picturesque village of beautifully restored buildings housing shops, restaurants and yachting service businesses.
