Weather Averages for Antigua in January
Averages for Antigua in January
Temperature wise, it feels like summer all the year round in the Caribbean Island of Antigua. Even in January, which classes as the coldest month, the average temperature is 25°C and it is unlikely to drop below 22°C. It’s easy to see why sun seeking Brits flock here to escape the cold UK winter.
The sun shines for 8 hours a day with just 67 mm of rain throughout the entire month.
Every January, Antigua Yacht Club hosts the ‘Round the Island Race’ and the Superyacht Challenge’. Both of these events are well attended and tourists get the chance to see some of the world’s most prestigious yachts.
A great way to see all the main sights on the island is to join an organised tour. Pelican Safari runs an all-day tour that takes in Nelson’s dockyard, the old fort, a sugar plantation, a drive in the rainforest and one of Antigua’s famous beaches. You’ll also get the chance to try local cuisine at a restaurant off the beaten track.
A lot of the hotels in Antigua operate on an all-inclusive basis. However, if you’re working to a tight budget, the Anchorage Rooms in English Harbour could be more to your liking. There’s a restaurant on-site and you’ll be near the dive shops and marinas.
The Jolly Beach Resort and Spa is an all-inclusive resort set amongst 40 acres of gardens. There’s always something going on at the resort and as well as a multitude of water sports, guests can take advantage of some relaxing spa treatments.
