Celebrations: Easter

Easter in Antigua and Barbuda

Easter is a unique event in Antigua and Barbuda. The island celebrates with family and friends while enjoying the twin-island nation's weather and ambience.

Antigua is the place for a relaxed Easter weekend, with over 365 beaches, magnificent topography to explore, and some of the most beautiful hotels and villas.

There are many activities you can do this Easter with others or solo. Here are some.

Kite Flying

Kite flying is one of the most popular activities for people to participate in throughout the Caribbean. Families are frequently seen flying kites around Antigua's 365 beaches, thanks to the beautiful weather that provides ideal circumstances for the activity. Throughout the Easter weekend, Antigua conducts its annual kite festival, which fills the sky with colourful and traditional homemade kites. The International Kite Festival, now in its 17th year, will take place on April 18th, during the height of the windy season, at Devil's Bridge National Park.


Tourists can go on an eco-adventure off Antigua's North Coast at the island's largest marine park, including several islands and the scenic Great Bird Island. Visitors can travel via the protected marine coast with its bird-covered islets and mangrove shorelines to reach the Bird's Nest on Big Bird Island. Hikers will enjoy the trail's canopies, and they should keep an eye out for the unique and harmless racer snakes that live on Antigua's northern shore.


Quin Farara is an Antiguan institution that has been the number one retailer of all things Rum since its inception in 1924. Visitors can now visit the rum shop for a quick rum punch experience or delve deeper into the history of rum production on the island with a one-hour Rum master class and tasting with an expert mixologist.

Now, we have discussed some popular activities here this Easter. Here are some hotels that are the perfect place to stay.

The Inn at English Harbour

Situated on a gorgeous cove in Antigua, this split-level resort has a hilltop building with views of English Harbour and the Caribbean Sea. The hotel features its own white sand beach, as well as a modest but charming private dock. The Inn strikes the ideal balance between Colonial-stle architecture and sumptuous, modern comfort. The Inn at English Harbour was conceived in the 1960s by British BWIA pilot Peter Deeth, who fell in love with this pristine piece of Antigua, just close to Nelson's Dockyard's historic port.

The Great House

The freshly opened Great House is nestled in a gorgeous 17th-century plantation and provides an excellent shelter in Antiguan warmth. The Great House Antigua has unveiled new cottage suites, all outfitted with modern and opulent amenities and decorated in vivid Caribbean hues with classic Antiguan pyramid roofs and vaulted ceilings. All garden suites have air conditioning, ceiling fans, mini-fridges, crisp linens, private terraces, and his and her showers, making them the ideal place to unwind after exploring the Caribbean paradise. Each cottage unit is nestled within 26 acres of tropical gardens and is created with guest comfort and seclusion in mind.

St. James's Club & Villas, Elite Islands and Resorts.

St. James's Club Resort & Villas, one of Antigua's most lavish resorts, encourage families and groups to spend quality time together in a delightful, laid-back Caribbean setting. The grounds are lush and groomed, leading to two lovely white-sand beaches: Mamora Bay Beach and Coco Beach. Tennis, water sports, and deep-sea fishing are family outdoor activities. Eat at one of the five restaurants, each boasting panoramic views and culinary options to suit every taste.
