“Nature at work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Took a catamaran ride around the island. We got to see Hercules pillars and what a sight that is. It is very small but so interesting to see how nature carved this out of stone over time. Be sure to look out for them if you take the boat tours.

“Great rock formation in a very cool harbor - snorkling ok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Stopped here for snorkeling on a tour. The marine life was ok, the real attraction was the Pillars. If you stop here for snorkeling you will most likely go in the harbor and see some billionairs yachts, very exclusive harbor...but a very cool place to swim and see this rock formation up close. Highly recommended as part of a tour. We used Adventure Antigua and had a great time.
