Four spiny lobster tails on a grill

Local Cuisine

Casual beach spots with super-fresh seafood are your best bet for lunch. Order some spiny lobster or conch grilled over an open fire.

Local Cuisine

Native dishes are based on local produce, fresh seafood and— of course— aromatic spices. Traditional dishes include the “oil down” (meat and veggies simmered in spices and coconut milk), stuffed crabs, and callaloo soup. For hamburgers and other casual eats, check out the food vendors along the Carenage harborfront.

An assortment of spices including Nutmeg

Shopping

You’ll find your standard guaranteed items like designer goods, jewelry and perfume here. But what you really want to take home are signature island spices, nutmeg jams, and spice-scented soaps. Your best bet is the Esplanade Mall at the cruise terminal, but many other options are within walking distance.

Three Bajan fish cakes on a green plate with white rice

Local Cuisine

This island is a seafood lover’s dream come true. Bajan (or Barbadian) cuisine blends African, Indian and British influences.

Fish and Chips on a white tray

LOCAL CUISINE

In Antigua, British, Creole, and West Indian flavors come together to spice up local ingredients and fresh seafood.

If you wander the harbor front, you’ll find traditional English fish and chips paired with locally brewed Wadadli beer.

INSIDER TIP

Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands, so don’t forget your sunscreen. Do not wear camouflage clothing— it’s against the law  in Antigua— and leave your beach attire for the beach.
