St. John’s

Britanski stil u karipskim bojama

Otok Antigua, kolonija britanske krune tijekom više od tri stoljeća, zadržao je okus tropskog života.


Dolazak na Antiguu s brodom MSC Krstarenja i silazak u English Harbour smješten na južnoj obali otoka umjesto u glavni grad Saint John, znači ulazak u povijesno središte otoka. Ovdje ćete pronaći Nelson's Dockyard, staro obnovljeno brodogradilište i područje Kraljevske mornarice Royal Navy district.


U razdoblju od travnja do početka svibnja to je mjesto na kojemu se održavaju neke od najvažnijih jedriličarskih regata na svijetu, poput Antigua Sailing Weeka. Redoviti posjetitelji profinjenog restorana Terrrace, smještenog u Innu u English Harbouru, najviše vole izvrsne jastoge i ribu crveni sneper. Čitav otok može poslužiti kao primjer onoga što ustvari znači odmor na Antilima. Obala otoka je pravi raj plaža: ima ih 365, baš koliko i dana u godini (kako kažu stanovnici otoka). 


Ove su plaže poznate, tajnovite, a neke od njih se čak nalaze u vulkanskim kraterima. Za one koji vole biti okruženi ljudima, pravi odabir su plaže Dickenson Bay i Runaway Beach. S druge strane, oni koji vole izoliranije destinacije trebaju otići do poluotoka Five Island gdje će moći uživati u plažama Deep Baya ili pak dugoj i besprijekornoj plaži Lignumvitae Bay. Plaža Cades Bay na jugozapadnoj obali je prvi odabir ronioca, nakon koje slijedi Cades Reef, četiri kilometara dugačak greben. 


Ogromne morske zvijezde pojavljuju se odmah izvan obale, na privatnom otoku Long Island koji se nalazi ispred zapadne obale otoka i na kojem je smješten luksuzni hotel Jumby Bay. Na istom otoku, u Pasture Bayu, morske kornjače svake godine u travnju i svibnju dolaze izleći jaja. Shriley Heights je nezaobilazna destinacija ako želite uživati u zalasku sunca, najpoznatijim zabavama na otoku ili u predivnom pogledu na English Harbour. Ovo je mjesto za zabavu gdje se gosti s brodova i lokalno stanovništvo druže već više od 30 godina.

    Discover Antigua's lush rainforest from a bird's-eye perspective as you navigate through the treetops on this wonderful "canopy” tour. A 40-minute drive by air-conditioned taxi will take to the rainforest region, after which highly qualified and experienced guides will ensure your aerial walk is not just highly exciting, but also extremely safe. After your briefing, the excitement starts at the Old Pump House with a walk over a suspension bridge from the side of the building, which spans the gorge to the far bank. Having crossed the bridge, you will then traverse no less than 12 (!) zip-lines as you zigzag your way through the forest and over the spectacular gorge. Look forward to amazing aerial views of rainforest flora and fauna and the chattering of numerous bird species. Guests will be offered a complimentary drink of water during the course. The tour ends with your return to the ship.

    This low-impact activity tour gives you an opportunity to spend half a day off the ship and explore Antigua from a waterside perspective. A fast motorboat will first take you from the kayak base to a secluded lagoon to board your kayak. Instructions and a safety briefing will follow, after which your guided 1-hour kayak tour begins, during which you will see otherworldly mangroves, scenic coastal inlets and tiny islands. Having re-boarded the motorboat, you will then be taken around the beautiful North Sound Marine Park, with a snorkelling stop scheduled at a sheltered off-shore reef. The tour also includes a gentle nature hike on Bird Island, an uninhabited isle that offers visitors two sandy beaches, panoramic views and a whole host of wildlife, including many tropical bird species, to observe. A boat will be on hand to take keen snorkelers out to a nearby reef, where guides will provide and fit your gear and show you where fish can be seen. If snorkelling is not for you, you can simply relax on the pristine beach, explore the island or go for a swim in the shallow beachside waters before returning to the kayak clubhouse. Please note: children must be at least 6 years of age to take part. Snorkel gear, fins, snorkel belts, life jackets and refreshments are provided during the tour. We recommend to wear footwear that can get wet, that are flat and non slip. Participants should be in good physical condition. This tour is not recommended for pregnant women, guests with limited mobility, heart/neck/hip/back/respiratory problems. This tour is only available for guests on board the MSC Musica.

Blessed with a wonderful ambience and beautifully restored buildings, this 18th-century dockyard looks back on an eventful history that your tour guide will provide details of. Next up is a stop at the Blockhouse remains, which offer a commanding view of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding coastline. You will then continue on to the ruins at Shirley Heights, a great photo opportunity at a vantage point overlooking Nelson's Dockyard, the English Harbour and surrounds.

    Also known as the "puppies of the sea", the southern stingray is a friendly soul that likes to play. This tour gives you a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these delightful marine creatures at Antigua's so-called Stingray City, situated in Seatons Village. After boarding a boat and being taken to a nearby coral reef, you will be able to snorkel, swim and feed the rays in the calm and crystal-clear waters of the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Views of the pristine coral reef and gorgeous surroundings serve to add another level of enjoyment to the tour, during which you will also have a chance to find out how these amazing animals live from your experienced guide. This extremely safe, entertaining and educational tour is very family-friendly and a must-do while on the island. Please note: children must be at least 5 years old to take part.

    The Caribbean islands are well known for their spectacular beaches, and none more so than Antigua. This beachy tour gives you a chance to make the most of your time on the island and begins with a 10-minute drive in an air-conditioned taxi to the gorgeous Dickenson Bay beach. Accompanied by your tour guide - who will point out all the relevant amenities as well as provide information and assistance - you can then enjoy all that this lovely spot has to offer. Just the sight of the half-mile sweep of soft, white sand fringed with coconut palms and seagrape trees is enough to take your breath away and the warm Caribbean Sea makes for a perfect time in the water. On arrival, a welcoming cocktail (fruit juice or rum punch) will be served that you can then enjoy in utter peace and quiet while comfortably seated in your reserved lounger. Your tour also includes a delicious lunch, after which there will be more time for you to enjoy at the beach. Please note: a lounge chair is provided free of charge at the beach. Parasols can be hired for a nominal charge. The beach area features toilet facilities, freshwater showers as well as a beach bar and a restaurant.

Ako volite engleski stil karipskih otoka, onda ne smijete propustiti odmor na Antigui i Barbudi. U Saint Johnsu, glavnom gradu Antigue, isplati se posjetiti Runaway Beach, plažu koja se nalazi između mora i slanog jezera, a koja je ujedno i dom velikih pelikana koji žive na otoku. Dickinson Bay se prostire prema sjeveru i jedna je od najbolje opremljenih plaža na Antigui.


Izlet u unutrašnjost, koji je poput putovanja u prošlost, odvest će vas od sela Pares od kojeg možete lako doći do Betty's Hopea, najstarije plantaže šećerne trske u zemlji i zatim nastaviti do Long Baya gdje vode zaljeva štiti koraljni greben. U Antigui je more iskopalo čak i nevjerojatni most Devil's Bridge.

 

Na Barbudi, dvadesetak morskih milja sjeverno od Antigue, možete se diviti najvećoj koloniji u kojoj se gnijezde morske ptice na ovom području, a iza nje se nalazi plaža duga 11 milja. Drevna povijest Malih Antila prepuna je tragova pretkolumbijskog stanovništva ovog područja poput Arawaka, domaćih stanovnika ovih arhipelaga. Neki njihovi predmeti mogu se vidjeti u Old Court Houseu (Saint John's), dok su petroglifi američkih Indijanaca vidljivi u Indijanskoj pećini na Barbudima.
