Antigua has been rewarded for its sustainability programme

Antigua and Barbuda is the proud recipient of Lonely Planet's Best in Travel Awards 2021's Emerging Sustainable Destination of the Year.

Lonely Planet heralded Antigua and Barbuda as one of the destinations positively transforming the travel industry. From banning single-use plastics to establishing a 'Green Corridor' of environmentally friendly businesses, Antigua and Barbuda has made sustainability a priority.

Charles Fernandez, Antigua and Barbuda tourism minister, has said that the islands are incredibly proud to have been recognised by Lonely Planet's Best in Travel Awards. He said: “As a nation, we are constantly striving to ensure sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do. Although we are a small country, we are pioneering initiatives to ensure that the beauty of our islands is preserved and nurtured for generations to come. The sustainable tourism department has made this a priority and within a short five-year period, we are very proud of the progress that has been made and the example we have set.”
