Trust me if you have not checked this place out yet please do it. The views are stunning and the bands are excellent. Trust me go and find out for yourself. A word of advice though be wary of the bbq chicken!

the atmosphere is wonderful and the scenery is spectacular but it could be made much more- it needs more stalls, food areas, and general sellers to expand out of the main area down the hill and make it more of an attraction in its own right. it has the space to do this.

We travelled 45 minutes from the Halcyon Cove to Shirley Heights to see for ourselves what everyone was talking about. When the mini-bus taxi drops you off you have to pay a small admission fee to enter. Once inside we experienced a big crowd enjoying spectacular views of English Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard. There is plenty of BBQ food on offer and prices are very reasonable. Drinks are a plenty and are also priced about right. Once the sun set at 1800 the music dominated the area and the steel bands and reggie bands really entertained. We loved our evening at Shirley Heights and we can now tick it off our "bucket list".

You will witness one of the world's greatest sunsets! The steel band music playing live is always a reliable treat, and it's hard to fault the rum punch. We've been here before on previous visits, and this time the food was tasty, but a little over-cooked.
Still! The views over Antigua, specifically Falmouth and English Harbours, is breathtaking!
