The history of the heights was very interesting and the views were fabulous. We only visited Shirley Heights for a short period of time but it is worth a visit.

If your going to view it, do it on any night but Sunday, the party night. It was massively over rated and very expensive with the jerk chicken at £20 and £3 for the cheapest of cheap beers anywhere else it's £1 tops, we paid £20 to go and a further £10 each to get in £120 and after 10... More

10 us$ to get in very expensive food and drink. Average steel band playing for too long. Limited seating and very crowded.

Definitely worth a visit when in Antigua. I have been before on a Sunday evening which has a big party vibe and great fun. However on this visit we were unable to attend on Sunday evening so decided to go Thursday. It was still worth it! Thursday is much quieter and chilled so a perfect time to take children or... More

A perfect place to take pictures of the English Harbor and the beautiful sunsets in Antigua. Also a nice hiking trail along the ridge with several picturesque spots.

The BBQ was good, bar moved quick, and the steel drums were great. Just absolutely packed. The view was one of the best on the island.

We visited Shirley Heights as part of our driving island tour. We got there about 1pm. We had a light lunch and drinks. The view of several bays was simply amazing. If you want perfect post card pictures of the beaches this is the best spot. Sunday evening barbecue is the highlight as you enjoy calypso and reggae music. You... More

Shirleys Height Sunday evening party is the place to be every Sunday night. It has a great cultural feel with the live steel pan music, and later with the live band. It usually a place where majority of travelers converge and interact, have a drink and have a great time.
