The capital and largest city of Antigua and Barbuda, St John's represents the commercial and touristic center of the twin-island country.
Family-friendly places like Valley Church Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to English Harbour (Nelson's Dockyard, Pigeon Point Beach, & more), Saint Philip Parish (Half Moon Bay & Devil's Bridge) and Turners Beach (in Bolans). The adventure continues: stroll through Dickenson Bay, kick back and relax at Galley Bay Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Heritage Quay, and get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.
