St. John's is Antigua's capital city and spending a day in this thriving portside oasis is a dream-come-true. Browse high-end boutiques downtown, hunting for the perfect beach accessory to complete your sun-kissed, caribbean look. Linger in a beachside cafe for lunch or tour the Botanical Gardens for an escape from the energy of St. John's. Roll down the windows of your Antigua car rental and tune your radio to a local calypso station as you drive toward your favorite beach for a sunset picnic - the epitome of romance in Antigua.
If you are planning a trip to Antigua, you are likely looking forward to exploring the miles of beautiful coastline the area is known for. However, this island paradise has much more to offer. When you decide to rent a car, you will find exploring the small, yet historically rich island is not only fun but also quite interesting. In fact, renting your own car lets you enjoy things at your own pace, rather than having to go along with a tour or group.
If you want to spend a day exploring a unique part of the island, plan a trip to Montserrat. This part of Antigua can be seen from the entire west coast, with some of the best views stretching from Jolly Beach all the way down to Old Road. You can stop off for an afternoon picnic lunch on one of the many beaches along the way.
For visitors who are looking for some historical sights, a must see is Nelson’s Dockyard and a trip up to Shirley Heights will complete the entire experience. Betty’s Hope is quite interesting and the museum in St. Johns, which is not too far from Roti King is small and fascinating. There is a beautiful cathedral located nearby that recently underwent some major renovations, which is worth stopping by while you are exploring the island in your rental car.
Be sure to add a GPS to your rental, since some of the roads and signs can be a bit confusing. However if you're feeling adventurous, you will find that getting lost will help you discover new and exciting parts of the island in your rental car.
