Located in the West Indies is the picturesque capital of Antigua and Barbuda, St. John's. The city enjoys an idyllic seaside location on the northwest coast of Antigua; and cruise ships often dock at Heritage or Redcliffe Quays in the city's harbour. The north side of the harbour is home to famous landmarks like Antigua Light and Fort James. Back in the centre of town, you'll notice the imposing white spires of St. John's Cathedral.
When visiting the city, tourists should head to Fort Barrington and Galley Beach which lie to the far south of the harbour. Hiring a car in St. John's also provides access to the likes of Jolly Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard, which are perfectly accessible on this tiny yet formidable island.
After visiting St. John's Cathedral, Fort James and the Botanical Gardens, you're probably ready to relax on the beach at Fort James; if you're based on the south of the harbour, you might choose Galley Bay Beach or the shoreline around Fort Barrington. If you're in the mood to eat or shop, look no further than Heritage Quay. To brush up on the fascinating history of St. John's, be sure to stop by the Musuem of Antigua and Barbuda.
Hiring a car in St. John's means you can explore the beaches to the south of the harbour as far as Valley Church Bay. A half hour drive east across the island takes you to the wonderful half Moon Bay, and if you do end up renting a car, don't miss the picture postcard Neslon's Dockyard to the south.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
