As we recognise Earth Day, The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority is highlighting the Green Tourism certified hotels under the Ministry of Tourism's Green Tourism initiative.  We also include a video that highlights our landscape with a Happy Earth Day message.  

Antigua and Barbuda’s stunning coastline, dramatic topography, lush rainforests, wetlands, offshore islands and teeming wildlife all combine to make the destination a fascinating place to visit.  Awarded 2021’s Emerging Sustainable Destination of the Year by Lonely Planet, Antigua and Barbuda’s Ministry of Tourism is at the forefront of the destination’s sustainable journey.

ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA’S GREEN TOURISM INITIATIVE  
The Ministry of Tourism has introduced several sustainable initiatives over the years, one of which is the ‘Green Tourism Initiative’, a voluntary programme aimed at assisting tourism businesses to reduce negative impacts on the environment while saving costs and improving the efficiency of their operations.  Businesses are assessed yearly by the Ministry of Tourism and those that meet the tourism standards are awarded a green tourism certificate.  
 
Green Tourism Certified Properties:  
Visitors can make their next vacation to Antigua and Barbuda more sustainable by booking a stay at an environmentally friendly accommodation.  Here are some of the hotels that have been awarded the Ministry of Tourism’s Green Tourism certificate.  

Keyonna Beach: Your room or cottage is a short walk away from the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea, and on a clear day, the horizon is graced with the outline of the neighboring volcanic isle of Montserrat. Our intimate, yet all-inclusive property is the equivalent of romance personified.

Cocos Hotel: Cocos Hotel situated on a bluff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The quiet resort is a unique collection of 30 individual wooden cottages with breathtaking panoramas built by local craftsmen.

Trade Winds Hotel: Trade Winds Hotel is a haven of tropical peace and tranquility, and it is only a few minutes’ walk to the beach.

 Catamaran Hotel: The friendly, charming and picturesque Catamaran Hotel is a bit of Falmouth and Antiguan history. Dating back to the 1968 it is owned and managed by one of the island’s premier yachting families “The Baileys”. Nestled between palm trees and tropical flowers our rooms open directly onto a small intimate beach.
