Went last night to the sunset party at Shirley heights. The party itself was ok but just tourists and not as expected. It is perfectly safe though and don't be put off by reviews saying otherwise. Like being in your hotel and only locals there...More

Hands down -- one of the best spots on thwe island to get a great view of Antigua. On Thursday and Sunday, you can get great live entertainment and delicious drinks. So much history is in this spot as well.

The views from here are amazing whether you look down across the English Harbour, towards Falmouth, out to sea or across to Eric Clapton's estate. It must be on your to do list....you will not be disappointed.

Good view from here - combined entrance usd 8 per adult with Nelsons Dockyard. Short presentation on history of island interesting but very dated special effects / animation etc. Worth a visit for an hour.

We visited during the day and for the Sunday evening barbeque. The gift shop was open both times, but there were far more vendors Sunday evening. Sorry, but we missed seeing the museum.
