This exclusive tour designed as part of our Artist's Loft collection of tours, allows you to discover the immense creativity and natural beauty of Antigua by touring two art galleries dedicated to local artists, capped off with a relaxing visit to one of the island's finest beaches.

Your tour commences with a brief drive to Cedars Pottery, an innovative art gallery featuring the work of Antiguan ceramicist Michael Hunt and his English wife Imogen Margrie, who is also a ceramicist. Started in 1996 when Michael returned to the island, Cedar Pottery is well-known for its beautiful and unique ceramic art. Pieces created by the art team here include hand-thrown tableware, architectural wall pieces, one-of-a-kind sculptures, and imaginative fountains. Upon arrival, you will have a guided tour and enjoy a chance to interact with the artists. Afterwards, you will have some time to peruse the gallery's selection of wonderful pieces and perhaps make a purchase for your own collection.

Next, you will drive into the lush rainforest to the Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery, which is shaded by giant cotton silk trees and royal palms. Here, in this tranquil setting, you will be treated to a display of original oil and watercolor paintings by owner Sallie Harker. There are also handmade crafts done by contemporary Caribbean artists, which run the gamut from black coral jewelry and decorative mirrors, to rope baskets and carved calabashes.

After your gallery visits, a scenic drive along the coast brings you to pristine Turner's Beach, where the island's natural beauty is on display. You'll have time here to stretch out and relax on the beach, look for shells at the water's edge, or take a swim in the turquoise sea. If it's a clear day, you can see the island of Montserrat in the distance.

Relaxed and no doubt filled with a new appreciation for Antiguan art, you will re-board your coach and travel back to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately1-hour of moderate walking, plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. There will be sandy surfaces to negotiate at the beach. Due to accessibility issues, the tour is not available to wheelchair guests.
