Antigua & Barbuda Introduction




        Antigua and Barbuda is an independent island country in the Caribbean Sea. It consists of the islands of Antigua, Barbuda, and Redonda.

      The island group lies in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies. It is located about 48 kilometres north of Guadeloupe, 400 kilometres southeast of Puerto Rico, and 700 kilometres north of Venezuela.

       Antigua's capital is St. Johns, and Barbuda's capital is Codrington. Redonda, a rocky islet, is uninhabited.

A Short Background

The islands of Antigua and Barbuda became an independent state within the British Commonwealth of Nations in 1981. Some 3,000 refugees fleeing a volcanic eruption on nearby Montserrat have settled in Antigua and Barbuda since 1995.
