The island of Antigua is ready to welcome visitors again after bouncing back quickly from Hurricane Irma, the destination’s tourist board said this week.

Hotels and resorts are back open, restaurants are buzzing and the island’s world-famous beaches are as beautiful as ever.

The Hermitage Bay resort, Antigua’s leading all inclusive.

And to sweeten the deal, the island’s tourism authority has also released a new “open for business” special that gives travelers up to 60 percent off their stays while on the island. Its twin-island of Barbuda is also on the road to recovery.

The sleek, modern South Point hotel is among the best places to stay in Antigua right now. It also boasts the best sushi restaurant on the island.

That includes everything from boutique guest houses to English Harbour’s hip South Point and the Antigua Yacht Club, among others.

Whether you want to spend time at the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site, Nelson’s Dockyard, go shopping in St John’s or spend your days on the sand, Antigua has something for everyone right now. (Make sure you include a stop at Shirley Heights Lookout, too)

Antigua has also released a new video encouraging travelers to put the destination in their plans.

You can watch it below:
