Looking for a new and exciting travel destination this year? Antigua and Barbuda is definitely worth checking out for it's pristine waters, exciting activities and luxurious resorts.

Although the twin islands are a great destination for couples, they provide an equal abundance of affordable, child-friendly options perfect for a summer family trip. Best of all, Antigua and Barbuda’s current Summer Lovin’ campaign lends itself as the best time to visit this tropical paradise.  The Summer Lovin’ deal offers up to 50 per cent off on vacations booked during the summer months through certain travel companies, resorts and airlines.

One beautiful resort that happens to be discounted for the summer months is The Verandah Resort and Spa. It is one of the island's best family resorts featuring a mini-golf course, a huge outdoor playground, a kid’s pool with a fountain and much more. Other discounted hotels include St. James’s Club & Villas and South Point Antigua.

Among attractions in Antigua, you can find an extensive list of adventures and eco-tours to keep kids and yourself entertained for however long you decide to stay. One of the top attractions besides the 365 beaches on the island, is Nelson's Dockyard

Nelson’s Dockyard is a UNESCO Heritage Site with an excellent child-friendly museum and a beautiful boardwalk with plenty of sights to admire.

Another impressive attraction is Devil's Bridge.  The legend here is that if you throw two eggs into the blowhole, the devil will keep one and throw the other back.  A fun little excursion to pique your curiosity.

As for water activities, there is something for everyone! There are many exciting catamaran cruises, glass bottom boat rides, snorkeling at coral reefs or petting the rays at Stingray City.
