St. John’s, Antigua The stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson’s Dockyard are two of pretty Antigua’s highlights, sensational views of which can be savoured from the 490 feet-high lookout point at Shirley Heights. Elsewhere, a visit to the colourful street market in St. John’s is a must, along with a stop at one of 365 stunning beaches – one for each day of the year, so the locals say. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Take in Antigua’s best sights: Jumby Bay; Devil’s Bridge; Green Island; and Nelson’s Dockyard – as well as white-sand beaches and pristine bays – aboard a state-of-the-art catamaran. Castries, St. Lucia Dominated by the soaring Twin Pitons – a must-see for any visitor – St. Lucia combines culture and heritage with typical Caribbean relaxation. Vibrant colours and scents explode into life at the Diamond Botanical Gardens & Falls, which were featured in Superman II, while the bubbling volcano of Soufriere and the many gorgeous beaches are well worth exploring too.
