Devil's Bridge, Saint Phillip Parish
(4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
See an unusual geological feature in a wild and remote area at Devil's Bridge. Carved by the sea, the natural arch shows the geological composition of the area, as water wore away the soft ledge of limestone and left only the hard layers. Several natural blowholes lie in the rock around the bridge, with the shoots of spraying water announcing the power of the Atlantic. With no land or offshore reefs between here and Europe, and strong trade winds, the sea is always violent--exercise caution.

  • Visited as part of a half day tour of the island. Quite dramatic if there is a big swell in the sea. 
  • Well the name is a great seller, And as we were driving around everywhere, this had to be visited, So were not disappointed, But i would not say make a detour,,,, Its name is the best part ! 
  • from the point of view of location is the strength of the ocean that rails against the rock ... regarding the name that has been given, the legend says that slaves who managed to escape from the plantations will throw the bridge knowing he died, but they preferred to die in the ocean waves rather than returning slaves. In this regard, the locals say he feels the breath of souls, when wind slamming into the slots on the rock of the bridge and creates a soft sound, like a sigh. It is a place almost mystical, in fact this has not let anyone walk on the deck where they threw the slaves.

  • This is a beautiful natural formation to go and see. Sad history of slaves killing themselves here. We went here while sailing with the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas.
  • Beautiful views across the sea and of the waves crashing into the rocky outcrop on which the bridge resides. Don't expect a massive arch, it's flat and the same height as the surrounding rock formations, but impressive to walk across. Be careful during windy periods! The access road is, as with the rest of the island, somewhat bumpy, although you can make it in a people carrier (with care).
  • Beautiful, exciting natural bridge made of rock formation. Definitely a place to visit in Antigua.
  • Gorgeous landforms with a gut-wrenching history
  • Worth a look if you're passing. Probably not worth a special visit.
