ANTIGUA and Barbuda's beauty and sunny climate gives tourists a perfect plethora of outdoor activities to try their hand at.

Nestled in the Caribbean both islands have become hotspots for those who love outdoor activities as much as the sun, sea and sand.

A spokesman for the website said: "Antigua and Barbuda’s colourful landscape lends itself to fun filled activities and a wilderness that is waiting to be discovered by budding explorers.

"Whether your interest is in creatures of the rainforest, sea life or plants the twin island paradise can offer every visitor an insight into the Caribbean’s wonderful wilderness."

And tourists are now taking advantage of opportunities to see the islands wildlife.

The spokesman added: "If you’ve ever dreamed of being able to see nature’s rare moments up close then Antigua is the place for you.

"Turtle watching season in Antigua offers visitors a rare opportunity to experience one of nature’s most beautiful sights.

"Pasture Bay Beach at Jumby Bay is one of the world’s primary nesting sites for the endangered Hawksbill Turtles. Watching them is carefully monitored via the local environment awareness group."

And for twitching tourists who like to keep an eye on more than just the birds strutting their stuff on the beach there are plenty of the avian variety to spot.

The spokesman added: "Antigua’s sister island, Barbuda, is home to the largest Frigate Bird Sanctuary in the world.

"Visit these colourful birds in their natural habitat and you might just spot some rare species in amongst the more than 5,000 Frigate birds that call Barbuda their home."

And tourists who want to make a difference to one of the many animals that live on the islands of Antigua and Barbuda now have the chance.

The spokesman added: "The Antigua and Barbuda Humane Society runs a shelter for more than 80 donkeys at its sanctuary in the south of the island.

"Come and see these docile animals for free and make a friend for life. Anyone adopting a donkey will be presented with an official adoption certificate and a photo of their donkey."

And for the non-vertigo suffering tourist Antigua now offers a unique way to see the islands beautiful rainforests.

The spokesman added: "One way to get an amazing view of Antigua’s rainforest is to bite the bullet and go on the greatest adventure ride in the heart of the rainforest, Zip lining.

"This activity is for the brave at heart as lines start from 53 feet up to 328 feet offering outstanding views only available by whizzing from one platform to the next. "Children from the age of 3 can join in the fun. Just remember to keep your eyes open on this exhilarating excursion."
