The Lesser Antilles Islands form the eastern arc of the Caribbean Sea.  The chain is further divided between the Leeward Islands, which run from the Virgin Islands east to Guadeloupe, and the Windward Islands, which run north-south from Dominica to Trinidad.  In this fantastic video from contributor the3venture, you'll get a look at beautiful Antigua, one of the Windward islands and part of the  nation of Antigua & Barbuda.  The video was shot using a DJI Mavic Pro and ground camera footage.

Half Moon Bay, Antigua

Iain Jordan

Contributor Iain Joran created this beautiful drone video of Half Moon Bay on the island of Antigua.  The bay is on the eastern coast of the island, on the Atlantic Ocean.  While the vast majority of the country's roughly 80,000 residents live on the island of Antigua, they are concentrated in the western and northwestern shorelines.  By contrast, the eastern part of the island has no population centers of any size.  Watch the video and you'll see why this is considered one of the Caribbean's top beaches.

The main harbor

The main harbor Antigua is in the town of St. John's, in the northwestern corner of the island.  The town has a population of roughly 22,000 in 2018, and is home to nearly one in three residents of the country.  It's also served as the capital of the country (called Antigua and Barbuda) since it became independent from the UK in 1981.  In this video from Iaian Jordan, you'll get a bird's eye view of the cruise ships MSC Armonia and MS Serenade Of The Seas docked in the harbor at sunset.
