  • This is a beautiful place to stop on a tour of Antigua. We came on the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas. If you come on Windstar's cruise ships, come at night and on Sunday's they have a huge party here :) The sellers here are a bit weird but the views are well worth the stop.
  • Absolutely stunning views from several points along the road up to Shirley Heights guardhouse. Lovely evening with friends, dancing, drums, a good cocktail and whiskey! Necessarily dedicate one night of the party!
  • Amazing views, and good fun on their BBQ and music nights. Recommend Thursday nights (rather than Sunday) to avoid huge crowds of tourists.
  • Went there yesterday lovely atmosphere Shame a lighting storm came but never the less lovely
  • Breathe taking views across the English Harbour! We went on a Thursday which was relatively quiet but still worth a visit. The BBQ Chicken tasted amazing and the Rum punch washed it all down nicely.
