The Beach is Just the Beginning: Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority launches new podcast
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 Antigua and Barbuda.
Available on leading podcast platforms, The Beach is Just the Beginning is a multi-episode series that transports listeners to Antigua and Barbuda with authentic stories and tales direct from the twin-island nation.
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 just in time to banish the January blues. Escape grey winter skies and 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 will include 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 restauranteurs 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.
Soon to be released sports episodes will coincide with the West Indies Cricket test series against England, featuring interviews from the legendary cricketing knights Sir Andy Roberts and Sir Richie Richardson, and the return of Antigua’s iconic Sailing Week – focusing on the impact these sports have on the island. Additional 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.
