“True Antiguan Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Sunday Night sorted...Great music from steel band to more modern music by a local band. Bar-B-Q available all evening and of course 'RumPunch' a must. Great views especially if you are lucky enough to get a good sunset. Unfortunately we didn't. Dancing, laughter and fun. What more would you want on a Sunday night in paradise?.

“Great Place to be on Sunday Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Didn't have high hopes for Shirley Heights, but heard it was a Sunday night 'must'. Was expecting a tourist trap but it ended up being soo much fun. Started with a steel drum band then turned into a full dance party with a reggae band playing cover tunes until 10pm. We were originally taking the 8pm cab then switched to the 10pm because we were having soo much fun.
The view was beautiful too. Be sure to bring a good camera.
As far as food goes, I didn't eat there, but my husband was told by the bartender to stick with anything pork so he got jerk pork which he enjoyed. So for anyone that isn't in the mood for bbq, try to have a large and late lunch and snack at home. Don't expect to go there for the food- just the party!! Great time!

“What a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Although Sunday is the favourite time to go we went mid-week. Super views from the seating area and we enjoyed lunch and a few beers. We had a delightful time. A must visit place.

“Amazing view, fascinating info at the Interpretation Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We went to Shirley Heights and the Interpretation Centre during the week ie to enjoy the view and history rather than the big Sunday knees up (which I am reliably informed is great, but wasn't something we opted to do this year). The view from Shirley Heights is phenomenal but don't miss out on the presentation over at the Interpretation Centre, it isn't exactly Disney standards but our 3 year old was enthralled and (even for adults) it does offer a fascinating insight and summary (albeit it necessarily brief) of Antigua's history. Definitely worth seeing.
