A beach for every day of the year
Silken sands. Captivating coves. Secluded shores. There are 365 beaches in Antigua, most located on the island's calm, protected Caribbean side. Tucked along the bays of the island, Antigua's beaches are some of the most pristine in the Caribbean. Warm, steady trade winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef make Antigua a delight for sun worshippers and watersports enthusiasts. Located in the middle of the Leeward Islands, Antigua's weather is ideal with less than 45 inches of rainfall each year, making it the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean Islands. On the east coast, Half Moon Bay and Long Bay are both known for unforgettable snorkeling and diving. Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay are located on the northwestern coast and are the place to go if you want the full beach experience. Galley Bay attracts surfers during the winter. The four crescent beaches at Hawksbill are also highly regarded. The perfect end to any day awaits with spectacular sunsets from Fort Berkeley and Shirley Heights, where you can see far out over English Harbour. A visit to Nelson's Dockyard at English Harbour is a delightful experience with its mix of shops, restaurants and English taverns.

| Barbados |
Serenity and gentility beckon...
With sweet tropical air and British flair, Barbados entices with spectacular pink-white sand beaches and crystal azure sea. Coral reefs fringe the shoreline providing exciting snorkeling and scuba. Complete your adventure exploring coastal caves that were once the hideouts of notorious pirates.
Barbados is unique, melding English traditions and Caribbean style. Often called "Little England", the island is home to centuries old stone buildings and churches. If not for swaying palm trees, you might be convinced you were in a London neighborhood. The people of Barbados are nicknamed "Bajuns". They are proud of their English heritage and enjoy cricket and afternoon tea. People still wear light jackets for dinner, observe traditional English manners and speak with more of a British accent than the pure "West-Indies" accent found elsewhere in the Caribbean. Bajuns are outgoing and welcoming to visitors from around the world. In fact, one of the reasons so many people enjoy going to Barbados is the overwhelming feeling that their hotel is part of the "neighborhood" rather than just a resort. The beaches of Barbados range from long, narrow strands of sand lapped by calm waters to rockbound, cove-type beaches that are scenic but pounded by high Atlantic surf. Cuisine on the island is drawn mainly from African and English influences but one can discover a great variety of establishments featuring Italian, French, Spanish, East Indian and Chinese culinary treats. Visit a quaint windmill, stand in awe 800 feet above the Atlantic in a 17th century Abbey, or sample some of the best rum in the Caribbean. Let the gentle trade winds take you to Barbados ...just beyond your imagination.

Uno, Dos, Tres Strikes-You're Out! Dominicans were crazy about baseball long before their countryman Sammy Sosa set the United States on fire.

If you go between October and January, you can catch a game in the Dominican Republic's Professional Winter League. The Liga de Beisbol stadium is in Santo Domingo. There are also games at the Tetelo Vargas Stadium in San Pedro de Macoris, known to sports fans as the "land of shortstops" for the multitude of infielders that call this tiny town home.
