"Nonsuch Bay is a beautiful and serene location, perfect for expats looking for a peaceful and relaxing lifestyle. Before moving to Nonsuch Bay, it's important to know that the official language is English, making it easier for English-speaking expats to communicate and integrate. The cost of living in Nonsuch Bay can be quite high, especially when it comes to housing and groceries, so it's important to budget accordingly. The local currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, but US dollars are also widely accepted. The climate in Nonsuch Bay is tropical marine, which means it's warm and sunny throughout the year, but also prone to hurricanes between June and November. Healthcare facilities in Antigua & Barbuda are adequate for routine health issues, but serious medical conditions may require evacuation to a country with more advanced medical facilities. The crime rate in Antigua & Barbuda is relatively low, but petty crime like theft does occur, so it's important to take standard precautions to protect your belongings. Public transportation is limited, so having a car can be beneficial, although the driving is on the left-hand side of the road. The local cuisine is heavily based on seafood, especially lobster, conch, and red snapper, and the national dish is fungie and pepperpot. The education system in Antigua & Barbuda follows the British model, and there are both public and private schools available, although the quality of education can vary. Finally, it's important to respect local customs and traditions, which are a blend of African, British, and Caribbean influences," wrote one member in Nonsuch Bay.
