An independent country made up of two larger islands and a few smaller ones, Antigua and Barbuda lies between the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are recognized for their incredible beaches lined with coral reefs, thick rainforests, and sailing. The English Harbor is a premium spot for yachting and sailing on Antigua. In St. John's, the capital you can learn about both the indigenous tribes that once occupied Antigua and Barbuda and also life on plantations in the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda. From Fort Barrington and St. John's Cathedral, a 19th-century Anglican Church there are endless tours to explore these islands.
