“A Taste of Paradise”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

A slice of heaven rolled into history, culture and romance, Shirley Heights is definitely a "must" for visitors and locals. The view of English Harbour and surrounding areas is breathtaking. The atmosphere with the Steelband and followed by a local band is electrifying and contagious. You can't help
getting caught up in the spirit of Carnival and dancing.

“Gorgeous view”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

The view is amazing with both the open sea and of a harbour.

There is a local crafts person selling souvenirs and a restaurant by the lookout point.

“Wonderful Views”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Sunday night at Shirley Heights gives you beautiful views, a fun party and tasty BBQ. If you wear comfortable shoes there are nice trails to walk with more great views.
