Since Antigua is promoted as a posh getaway in the Caribbean, how do you spend a day on this island without burning your wallet? We’ll tell you how.

Travel Tip: How to Spend Less on Antigua

Nestled in the Caribbean region is the stunning island of Antigua, one of the two islands that comprise the nation Antigua and Barbuda.


While it can’t be denied that Antigua is an expensive holiday destination, there are realistic ways to get the most out of your vacation without necessarily spending too much. Here we share two tips on how to spend less on Antigua.

1. Snorkeling

One of the cheapest activities you can do in Antigua is snorkeling. It’s a better idea if you bring your own fins, snorkel and mask so that you wouldn’t be charged overpriced fees on the rented equipment available by the beach. A taxi (costs around $25) may take to the beach area, and from there, you can already start your day by watching various species of colorful fish and remarkable coral reefs underwater.

2. Beaches

Aside from snorkeling, another inexpensive activity is beach bumming as the wondrous beaches on Antigua won’t cost you a single dime. There are no private beaches in the area, so all you have to do is to bring a towel, and start topping off that tan! Recommended beaches for sunbathers are the Long Bay, Hawksbill and Runaway Bay beaches.

On the whole, you can still enjoy the best of Antigua even on a shoestring budget!
