Antigua and Barbuda has improved its vaccination rates for Covid-19 so well recently, on-island restrictions have been eased allowing visitors a chance to enjoy some newly re-opened tourism experiences. Antigua had a record number of visitors in August but then had a bad outbreak of covid cases which necessitated restrictions, but now things are much better.
Guests can look to spend time at one of the island’s 365 beaches; new opening hours for all beaches are from 5am-7pm daily. Water excursions are also officially open. Guests can sail to Antigua’s sister-island Barbuda, for a visit to the magnificent Frigate Bird Sanctuary or drop anchor within reach of a deserted beach. Antigua’s activities include kayaking, a circumnavigation cruise and snorkelling, along with various other water-based experiences that stretch across the coastline. Land-based excursions continue to operate.
Following a short break, restaurant tables are also set to reopen for dine-in service, but only for fully vaccinated travellers. The curfew hours have also been relaxed, and will now apply from 11pm-5am. Visitors must still observe all Covid-19 protocols during their stay.
