The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has launched ‘The Beach is Just the Beginning’ – a one-of-a-kind podcast hosted by renowned travel writer and journalist Peter Moore that champions authentic stories from the twin-island nation.
listeners can explore everything from heritage, set against the backdrop of Antigua and Barbuda’s 40th independence anniversary with a journey through UNESCO World Heritage Site Nelson’s Dockyard, to a tropical wellness getaway.
They can discover how Antigua and Barbuda is becoming the ultimate self-care destination, complete with glamping and wellness retreats, attracting visitors looking to unplug and reset with natural remedies, yoga, and abundant sunshine.
As no trip to Antigua and Barbuda is complete without a journey to both islands, the series includes an entire episode dedicated to life in Barbuda. Listeners will learn about Barbuda’s unique culture and the island’s must-do experiences through conversations with notable locals including culture expert Asha Frank and restaurateurs Jackie Beazer and Matthew John.
The Barbuda special will also include a tour of the frigate bird sanctuary, the largest in the western hemisphere, and a look at the development taking place on the island.
