London, United Kingdom (December 14, 2017) – Reggae pop band, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, has today released a new music video of Come Back Darling, filmed exclusively on the Caribbean island of Antigua. For those inspired by the video and wishing to follow in the footsteps of UB40, a UB40 island map has been developed by the Tourism Authority highlighting all the points on the video.
Famous for hit singles including Red, Red Wine and Can’t Help Falling in Love, the video re-make by reggae legends UB40 aims to encourage Brits to ‘come back’ to the Caribbean following the hurricanes of September 2017. Filmed only on Antigua which was unaffected by the hurricanes, it travels from the panoramic Shirley Heights viewpoint to the beautiful yachts in English Harbour, showcasing the best the island has to offer visitors.
Starting at Elite Island Resort’s Pineapple Beach Club, the video moves onto the winding Fig Tree Drive to the capital St. Johns, the coastal roads with some of Antigua’s most picture postcard white sand beaches and English and Falmouth Harbours holding hundreds of majestic yachts. The video shows the variety of beaches, hotels, resorts, and activities Antigua offers for visitors looking to escape to the sunshine.

About Antigua and Barbuda:
The largest of the Leeward Islands, Antigua & Barbuda comprises 108-square miles. The 365 white and pink sand beaches, one for every day of the year, are just the beginning of the treasures that await visitors. Antigua’s rich history and spectacular topography provide a variety of popular sightseeing opportunities. Nelson’s Dockyard, the only remaining example of a Georgian fort commissioned by the British in 1755, is perhaps the most renowned landmark. Betty’s Hope, built in 1674, is the site of one of the first full-scale sugar plantations on Antigua and offers a chance to step back in time by visiting the restored mills. Another unique attraction is Devil’s Bridge, located at the eastern tip of the island in Indian Town National Park, where Atlantic breakers have carved out a natural limestone arch. Antigua boasts a varied tourism calendar including events such as the World Class Antigua Sailing Week, Classic Yacht Regatta, Antigua Sports Fishing and also the annual Carnival; known as the Caribbean’s Greatest Summer Festival. Island accommodation ranges from luxury resorts and all-inclusive hotels to smaller more intimate boutique guesthouses and cottages.
