ANTIGUA: the Caribbean island that's so laidback nothing matters .....

Sunday Mercury: "AS I waited, the tree canopy spread below like a lush green cloud, my legs dipped.

This was my one moment of dread in a dreadlock holiday that ticked all the boxes: beautiful hotels, stunning beaches, sunshine and gourmet food.

If it gets any better than Antigua, jewel in the powder blue waters that surround the string of Caribbean, I’d be very surprised.

This is a destination where breakfast at the Beach Club, part of the luxurious St James complex, is shared with hummingbirds who sip nectar from the exotic plants only feet from the tables."
