Caribbean Antigua

A huge seventeen-deck cruise liner is being moored at the port, and it seems to me from above that we are about to enter the central street of the city. St. John's on the island of Antigua is the capital of the Caribbean island state of Antigua and Barbuda.

I have a life hack: you should never go after the crowd to the guys offering shore excursions. Take a pause, get away from the port - and you will get the same service for smaller money. Much smaller.

Devil's Bridge is definitely the most interesting place on the island of Antigua. There's a similar tourist attraction on the Dutch Aruba, but the natural aqueduct of stone on Antigua is much more interesting. Try to cross the bridge over the abyss without being covered by a sea wave.

I didn't manage to do this. I was standing on the bridge, taking pictures, smiling.

When suddenly an ocean wave came, and I became wet from toe to crown.

The old English dock is named after Admiral Nelson. There is a version that one of the most famous seafarers lived on the island for 3 years.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth planted this palm tree on February 22, 1966.

The size of the yacht is impressive.

It is impossible not to love this island. As for me, Antigua is one of the best Caribbean islands.

The sea, sand, rum, discos and no concerns. There are musical parties during holidays, and no parades and demonstrations.

Those who do not want to explore the city and its attractions can stay on the beach. There's a nice white sand, cold beer and free Wi-Fi.

Local guys do not need the beach, they almost don't swim. This is common and routine for them. Playing cards is much more interesting. :)

With strong local rum.

While dads are playing, kids in the toilet improve the acrobatic stunts on.

Someone just sits on the steps.

Beautiful girls of Antigua.

St. John's Cathedral is the main attraction of the island state's capital.

The monument to Sir Vere Cornwall Bird is the coolest one in the city. The islands of Antigua and Barbuda became one independent state during his reign. Much later, after the resignation of Sir Bird, his son suggested to consider his father a national hero.

A local radio station is holding a concert in the center of St. John's.

However, it's time to return on the ship.
