Antigua Packing tips

Due to the average temperature never falling below 25°C the famous 365 beaches are available for your pleasure 365 days a year, meaning that beachwear is an essential part of anyone’s luggage. Remember that a side effect of the constant sunshine is that sun cream will certainly be needed.

The warm temperatures mean that dressing sensibly is integral to your enjoyment. In terms of tops or dresses, make sure they are loose fitting cotton or linen. Loose fitting khaki trousers or shorts are usually preferred too. When thinking about footwear, sandals are an obvious choice for lazy beach days but a pair of sturdy shoes is recommended for those who want to do a bit of island exploration.

Those travelling around hurricane season should remember to pack some precautionary waterproofs.

Finally, do not forget to invest in some insect repellent before travelling so you are armed against those pesky mosquitoes.
