In 1784, Admiral Horatio Nelson sailed to Antigua and established Great Britain’s most important Caribbean base. Over 200 years later, the same unique characteristics that attracted the Royal Navy still transform Antigua and Barbuda into a premier tourist destination in the Caribbean. The island has warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbours and a protective, nearly unbroke wall of coral reef. Natural wonders include the rainforest, Frigate Bird Sanctuary and Devil’s Bridge.
