Accommodation

Need A Place to Stay?

Antigua Sailing Week is based in English Harbour and therefore many people tend to focus on staying in the English and Falmouth Harbour areas. However, there is a huge choice of accommodation around the island that is easily accessible. Remember, you can drive to Regatta Headquarters from all corners of the island in about half an hour.

Customs & Immigration

Make Sure You've Got Everything Before Your Arrival

We wish you a warm welcome to Antigua and Barbuda! It is the objective of the Antiguan Government and the Departments of Customs and Immigration to make procedures for entry by sea as quick and simple as possible. The main ports of entry include English Harbour, Jolly Harbour, Deepwater Harbour and Heritage Quay. Yachts wishing to visit Barbuda must clear in at one of the official ports of entry in Antigua prior to proceeding to Barbuda. As part of the clearance process, a Cruising Permit for Antiguan and Barbudan waters will be issued which is valid for a period of one month. If you plan to remain for longer than one month, it will be necessary to renew the Permit when it expires.
