Fig Tree Drive, Antigua

3.5
#65 of 101 in Outdoors in Antigua
Meandering for 8 km (5 mi), Fig Tree Drive runs through a green area of Antigua, past rainforests and massive banana trees (locals like to call figs). Roadside vendors sell fruit and smoothies, so don't pass by without asking them for some mango or black pineapple. Along the way you can try a zipline and look for a few beaches. Rent a scooter or take a taxi to navigate the road--if you drive, look out for big potholes. Use our Cades Bay route app to arrange your visit to Fig Tree Drive and other attractions in Cades Bay.
