Breathtaking views of Nelson's Dockyard, the English Harbour and Dickenson's Bay. We learned of the Sunday night party here every Sunday watching the sunset and the Calypso music.....

We visited here as a stop on a private tour. What a gorgeous view! Didn't stay long, but there was a restaurant there which looked nice. Wish we could have been there that Friday as there was music. I would say this is a must do on Antigua!

If you are looking for a unique Antiguan experience make sure you make it to Shirley heights. Maybe a little of a tourist trap but the food and music is more then worth it. Will be back.

This is a big tourist hangout but a must do. Views are one of a kind, good music and surprisingly excellent BBQ food. Come early to snag a seat.
