This is a fantastic opportunity to combine one of the best city break destinations in the world with one of the most beautiful of all the Caribbean islands all in one incredible holiday. You’ll start your holiday in New York, the city that never sleeps before heading to the Caribbean island of Antigua for plenty of sun and sea and flying from Belfast makes it even easier to get away this year!
Although most of New York’s iconic attractions are very familiar to visitors from seeing them in movies or on television, nothing compares to experiencing them first hand. Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past the Statue of Liberty. Visit Ellis Island and discover the history of the immigrants who flocked to the new world. Stroll through the West Village or relax in leafy Central Park. Visits to The Met and the Guggenheim museums are also highly recommended for culture vultures. New York has so much to offer, there is always something to see or do.
From New York you’ll fly to the stunning Caribbean island of Antigua. Soak up the sun on this white sand beach or enjoy trying out the many watersports on offer. Away from the beach, a visit to Shirley Heights is a must on any holiday to Antigua. The best time to climb Shirley Heights is either sunrise or sunset where you can take in stunning views of ever changing light as it dances across the sea in the English Harbour below. Sunday nights at Shirley Heights is the place to be! Mingle with locals and tourists as you enjoy a true Caribbean style party – think delicious barbeque food, rum punches, steel drum bands and night to remember!
