Take the road less traveled and cycle around Antigua. For those who want to experience nature while traveling around the island, a rented bicycle or moped is the perfect mode of transportation.


Biking is fun and affordable. You can find a wide selection of mountain bikes at Sun Cycles in Hodges Bay, where the cost for an 18-speed bike is around $20(USD) per day and $85(USD) for the week. The cost for moped rentals starts at $30(USD) per day.

The advantages of traveling by moped or bike include never having to worry about finding a parking space, and a considerably smaller gas bill. Be sure to check the weather before setting out on your moped or bike, or you might end up all wet in an unexpected rain shower. It is smart to rent a helmet with your bike or moped, and you will be required to purchase a temporary local operator's license before driving your moped.

If you are intrigued by the idea of sightseeing at a more leisurely pace, you will find a few rental agencies that can help make it happen.

If you want to go riding, you can check with Cheke's Scooter Rental. The top scooter rental agency on Antigua is Cheke's Scooter Rentals. Not only do they offer a number of services to make the rental process easier on guests, but they also have deals for cruise ship passengers who are renting for just a short period of time. They are found in English Harbour, in southern Antigua.
