The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has launched ‘The Beach is Just the Beginning’ – a one-of-a-kind podcast hosted by renowned travel writer and journalist Peter Moore that champions authentic stories from the country.
The multi-episode series transports listeners to the destination with authentic stories and tales direct from the twin-island nation. It’s available on leading podcast platforms including Spotify and Amazon Podcasts.
Travel hungry listeners can explore everything from heritage, set against the backdrop of Antigua and Barbuda’s 40th independence anniversary with a journey through UNESCO World Heritage Site Nelson’s Dockyard to a tropical wellness getaway. Or they may discover how Antigua and Barbuda is becoming the ultimate self-care destination, complete with glamping and wellness retreats, attracting visitors looking to unplug and reset with natural remedies, yoga, and the classic Antiguan sunshine.
As no trip to Antigua and Barbuda is complete without a journey to both islands, the series includes an entire episode dedicated to the on-island life of Barbuda. Listeners will learn about Barbuda’s unique culture and the island’s must-do experiences through conversations with notable locals including culture expert Asha Frank and restaurateurs Jackie Beazer and Matthew John. The Barbuda special will also include a tour of the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, the largest in the western hemisphere, and a look at the development taking place on the island.
Future instalments will have armchair travellers journeying to Carnival through the significance of music and costume and transported to the romantic shores of Antigua’s beaches, to learn about the rise of destination weddings.
