Antigua's ecosystem and environment
are our concern
In an effort to conserve water and electricity Siboney is
hotels participating in a "help the environment" program.
of the reasons for the lushness of the vegetation in our garden is that
we have a plenitude of water from our re-cycling plant. The
water you see
being used in our garden has already been used once in the
other wastewater is piped throughout the garden by an underground
We are acutely aware of the large amounts
of water and power being used by
all of us every day and we ask you to join with us in a conservation
program, which will benefit the planet and future generations.
Siboney Beach Club is not only ideally
located for waterbased eco-tourism, but Siboney's owner,
Tony Johnson, strongly supports eco-activities. Local
tour operators, well acquainted with Antigua's
ecosystem, offer interesting excursions. Typically for
the Caribbean, the emphasis is on waterbased eco-tours,
though eco-tourism on land is significant.
ANTIGUA (pronounced: "Anteegah")
is the name given to our Island by Christopher Columbus
when he passed by in 1492. Antigua and sister island Barbuda
part of the Leeward island chain in the Eastern Caribbean,
about 450 mile north-east of South America. Our combined
170 square miles are
situated roughly at the center of the Lesser Antilles,
giving it the description as the "heart of the Caribbean".
At the time of Christopher Columbus
the Caribs, a warlike tribe who had come up from South America and killed off
peaceable Arawarks, who inhabited the island.
Amerindians of 4000 years ago have been known as the Siboney and the use of the name has been extended to cover the Antiguan inhabitants of that time.
SIBONEY: the stone people. It is after those early inhabitants, and a haunting
Cuban love song, that our property is named.
