Antigua Elite Conference

At the beginning of May 2019 the Traverse team along with 40 elite influencers from the UK, USA, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean flew to the stunning island of Antigua for a very special kind of event.

In partnership with Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA) attendees had the chance to learn new content creation skills and discovered the beautiful island of Antigua.

The Caribbean is about a slow pace of life and those that joined us had the opportunity to explore the beaches, to swim in the crystal clear waters, sample local delicacies as well as having time to relax at their host hotel, courtesy of resort partner Elite Island Resorts Group.


The Traverse Elite conference is an unrivalled experience bringing together content creators with high level talents and skills to network, collaborate and learn from each other.

The content creators who attended focus on a variety of niches including travel, food, family, lifestyle and publish content over their primary platforms of blogs, Instagram and YouTube.

 The first time I found out that there is such a thing as an Upside Down Jellyfish, the first time I actually saw one! Antigua stole my heart, not just because of its animals, but also because of its mind-blowing sunsets, its people and food, and last but not least, the wide range of activities possible on the island.

Drinking in Antigua is much more than just the rum cocktail or sweet pineapple concoction you are served upon check-in at your all-inclusive resort or find in every Antigua, hotel, bar or restaurant. Still, there is a lot to be said for the ubiquitous rum punch when it’s treated with respect, as it is in Antigua

There’s just something about feeling the soft sand between your toes, cooling off in crystal clear, turquoise water, and sinking into island time. It just makes you feel incredibly relaxed, which is how I felt during my one week in Antigua.

Antigua Beach at Verandah Resort
Back in 2015, I visited 100 beaches in the Dominican Republic in a single year. That was the thought that crossed my mind when I realized I’d seen nine beaches in Antigua in just six days, plus at least four in Barbuda.

I’ll have a mojito, please,” I said to the bartender, who smiled before turning to make the drink. I’d learned a few nights prior that despite everything being included, the staff at The Verandah Resort & Spa in Antigua did not skimp on alcohol.

Located in the northeast part of the Caribbean, Antigua is the main island of the country Antigua and Barbuda.

Travel Tom Tom in Antigua
Welcome to the Caribbean, welcome to the country with 365 beaches. Beginning of May 2019 I boarded a plane in London for my direct flight to the enticing island of Antigua & Barbuda. A week long I was able to explore the best Antigua tourism has to offer. It was my first time visiting Antigua & Barbuda, a country many people most probably never heard of, but since a kid I was in love with their flag. Finally I got the chance to travel to Antigua myself!

Landing in Antigua is one of our favourite moments. Dropping down through broken cloud on the final approach. Noticing the sea getting lighter, turning from dark olive to bright turquoise. Catching a first glimpse of the island, the palm trees, the beaches, yachts moored in quiet bays, the white roofs. Cabin crew seats for landing. Holidays ahoy!
