7 Best Antigua and Barbuda Instagram

The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Antigua and Barbuda

The paradise country of Antigua and Barbuda is made up of the two namesake islands and several smaller ones in, lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

You’ll find lush rainforests, white sandy beaches and luxury resorts. The majority of the main attractions are on the island of Antigua, which is where the capital city, St. John’s is. Barbuda island is also worth a visit for its peaceful beaches.

You’ve gotta capture that tropical paradise on camera, so here’s the best places to get an Antigua and Barbuda Instagram photo.

1. Shirley Heights

Shirley Heights is a restored military lookout that has the best view of all Antigua. Best time to go? At sunset and early evening when all of English Harbour is all lit up.

From 4pm until 10pm every Sunday, local bands play Caribbean music here and people come for drinks and a bbq.

2. Mount Obama

A 1,319-ft. forest-covered island hill & national park was renamed after former US president Obama in 2009.

Although the peak is off limits to the public, there’s nice jungle trails to trek and the green rainforest scenery will look great in an Antigua and Barbuda Instagram snap.

3. Stingray City

If you’ve always wanted to get up close and personal with stingrays, this is the place to do it. A short boat ride takes you to Stingray City, where you can pet and feed Southern Stingrays in their natural environment.

4. Nelson’s Dockyard

Nelson’s Dockyard is the largest of Antigua’s National Parks and is still in use today as a working dockyard for numerous yachts and ships.

The 18th and 19th-century buildings inside the dockyard area have been fully restored and are now pretty art galleries, hotels and stores.

5. Ffryes Beach

Have you ever seen water so blue and sand so white? Ffryes beach is absolutely perfect.

The beach is two stretches of sand, Big Ffryes Beach and Little Ffryes Beach, and there’s nice restaurants nearby when you need a break from the sun.

6. Gunpowder House, Admiral’s Inn

A gorgeous boutique hotel, Admiral’s Inn is set in four historic buildings dating from the 18th century. The terrace looks out over yachts floating in the harbour and there’s a spectacular infinity pool.

This is an ultra glam spot for a mini Antigua and Barbuda Instagram photoshoot.

7. St John’s

St. John’s is the capital and largest city of Antigua and Barbuda and is SO PRETTY. Colourful buildings, colonial cottages and a picturesque harbour are just some of what makes St John’s great.

On Friday and Saturday mornings, be sure to visit the vibrant farmers market for tropical fruits and a lively atmosphere.
