Pear Island Excursion
Sailing has been a central part of Antigua's culture
for centuries, ever since the British under Horatio Nelson made
Harbour their Caribbean base. Today, the stately Georgian architecture of Nelson's
Dockyard hosts a more
pleasure-seeking fleet--the international
boats, recreational yachts, and classic sailboats of Antigua's annual Sailing
Week. With such a rich marine tradition, its no surprise that boats of
all sorts can be hired in Antigua. Most hotels have Sunfish or Sailfish,
and a number of companies hire yachts.
are more than a little devoted to cricket. The island has historically
been a very strong contributor to West Indian and international cricket,
and the Antigua Recreation Ground is one of the finest places in the
Caribbean to take in a local, regional, or international match. Devotees
of the game can visit the Antigua and Barbuda Museum for a look at the
infamous cricket bat of Vivian Richards, native Antiguan, former captain
of the West Indies Cricket Club, and one of the greatest batsmen of all
time. Matches can be found almost anywhere on the island, at almost any
Although more recently established than its sailing
counterpart, Antigua's annual Tennis Week draws an impressive field of
international competitors to the island in May of each year. Quite a few
of the island's hotels have excellent facilities.

Hiking and Birdwatching
Hiking has not been much developed as an organized
activity, although Antigua has many trails and tracks that are well suited
to it. Most of the popular hikes lead to one or another of the island's
many hilltop fortifications: Fort George sits atop Monk's Hill, and Fort
Barrington (captured by the French in 1666) is on the promontory at Deep
Bay. The Historical and Archaeological Society frequently arranges group
Much of the appeal of the natural environment in
Antigua and Barbuda is the multitude of bird species to be found there.
The Frigate Bird Sanctuary on Barbuda, though
accessible only by boat, is the largest bird sanctuary in the Caribbean
and contains over 170 species; Long Island and Great Bird Island also
offer outstanding opportunities for birdwatchers.
