April in Antigua

There is more to April than April fool’s day.  Did you fool anyone this year?  Or did you get fooled? 🙂

April is the turning point between the northern and southern hemispheres and one of the most transitional months in the year.   Why?  Because if you’re on a budget it is the best time to find travel deals and as far as weather goes April is a fantastic time to visit Antigua.

There is no shortage of activities in Antigua during April and there is something for everyone to enjoy.  The headliner events for April is the Classic Yacht Regatta, Guadeloupe to Antigua Race and the world renowned Antigua Sailing Week.  This means all kinds of tall ships and yachts, plenty of ocean activities and plenty of parties to enjoy.


With most of the days being sunny and comfortable feel free to throw on a wetsuit and enjoy the lack of vacation crowds…Jabberwock Beach is the place you want to be and a great time to try wind or kite surfing if you haven’t before.

Duty-free shopping is also great at this time of the year in St. John’s with great deals on swimwear, jewelry and souvenirs.

For the nature and fitness enthusiasts feel free to join the Hash Harriers, 5AM Hike Club or Dadli Hikers on one of their historical or nature hikes and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Antigua…don’t forget to bring your camera.

April this year we celebrate Easter and island traditions such as Easter Sunday Mass, Easter Monday brunches, beach picnics and kite flying are quite popular.  Our Bay House Restaurant is also a favourite for Easter dining with our alfresco setting and all day breakfast and home-style menus.  We are opened everyday from 7am – 11pm serving food all day including tapas and happy hour every day from 5pm – 7pm.

Experience Easter and Antigua in April when you stay with us at Trade Winds Hotel with our 20% room sale all offering panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea.
