Antigua and Barbuda has expanded its tourism opening with local vaccination rates continuing to rise. 

The twin-island country has eased on-island restrictions, meaning “visitors can look forward to enjoying some newly re-opened tourism experiences,” according to a statement from the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority. 

That includes the opening of water excursions, whether sailing to Barbuda or dropping anchor on a deserted beach.

That’s along with kayaking, snorkeling and other water-based activities; land-based excursions have continued to operate. 

Restaurants have also reopened for dine-in service after a brief hiatus, with fully vaccinated diners able to “completely immerse themselves in Antigua and Barbuda’s rich, culinary experience.”

That includes the recent reopening of Antigua’s signature restaurant, Sheer Rocks, which, along with its sister restaurant Catherine’s Cafe, also just reopened.

Curfew hours have also shortened, now in place at 11 PM to 5 AM.

All passengers ages five and up must also present proof of a negative PCR test result taken and received within four days of their flight.
