  • WHERE TO GO IN ANTIGUA

    Three local friends pull up on their small boat to a cruise ship in the colourful and lively harbour at St Johns, Antigua.
    St John’s
    This lively capital is best explored on foot. Meander through its network of streets to discover duty free shopping at Heritage and Redcliff Quays and learn about Antigua’s history at the Court House.
    Luxurious yachts rest in the lavish English Harbour with ongoing views of the Caribbean coast and beach towns, Antigua.
    English Harbour
    This fully restored harbour is the only Georgian dockyard in the world. Developed by Captain Horatio Nelson, it once served as a base for the British Navy during colonial times. Nowadays it's a lovely place to relax, dine and admire the boats. In the evening it plays host to a range of bars and nightclubs, many with live music. The Antigua sailing week in March/April is not to be missed.
    Dark limestone rock formation of Devil’s Bridge at Hellsgate, Antigua looking mysterious as it sits on the turquoise water.
    Indian Town National Park
    Great for hiking and birding and home to Devils Bridge, this national park features striking limestone scenery. Watch the numerous geysers and blowholes force flumes of water dramatically into the air.
    A local musician plays the magical steel-drums in a lively reggae bar in Shirley Heights, Antigua.
    Shirley Heights
    One of Antigua’s most popular attractions, Shirley Heights offers stunning panoramic views over English Harbour. The famous Sunday Jump Up is a highlight; watch the sun set while enjoying drinks and a barbecue to the accompaniment of a steel band and lively reggae music.
