Antigua and Barbuda is located in the heart of the Caribbean between the Greater and Lesser Antilles, about 402 km east-southeast of Puerto Rico. The territory consists of three main islands together with a number of much smaller islands. Antigua and Barbuda offers beaches, and a wide variety of water-based activities including diving, snorkeling, sailing and fishing. It also consists of historical sites and attractions, which contain military and naval fortifications and architecture. Antigua and Barbuda is blessed with an abundant diversity of heritage sites. There are over 60 prehistoric sites of ancient Amerindian settlements, and numerous former sugar estates. The most visited places are the Half Moon Bay - the most romantic and photographed  beaches in the Caribbean, Shirley Heights - a wonderful region on the hillside offering remarkable views of the port and city below and Devil’s bridge - a huge innate limestone curve on the coast which provides a most scenic sight on the island.
