  • Quite a contrast from the main market just down the road. If you are looking for duty-free or quality items then head along to Heritage Quay.  more »
  • With the company "jeans" punctually from Basseterre to St. John's, I took advantage of a day in another island in the Caribbean. St. John's is the place where tourists arrive. Also, there are world and shops. I took the opportunity to do my Christmas shopping. It is necessary to stay several days in Antigua to take full advantage of the natural wonders of the island.

  • Our cruise ship docked here and the welcome is chaotic and bustling with thousands of people mingling around. On the spur of the moment we took up the offer of a guide to take a bus tour around the is...  more »

  • Love the ambience and fun to see a mixed of busy tourists and travelers, local people, and street vendors selling their cute t-shirt souvenirs and more. The area is nicely packed with colorful shops and mostly filled with souvenir shops and tours offers, with some food and drinks only some blocks away. We can definitely bargain with the street vendors and again I'm happy because they're not too pushy. The price is so so for t-shirts, especially if you buy many, but it's expensive for small staff like magnets or souvenir plates. Typical tourists favorite. I feel safe enough and people are friendly here.
  • The port itself is ok but once you are away from the ship the taxi drivers and vendors are in your face trying the hard sell on anything and everything. I'm well travelled especially the Caribbean and for many this would be intimidating. If you're on a cruise I would recommend booking an excursion. I understand times are tough but less really is more!!
  • A great place to shop. The watch I am wearing right now was purchased there over 12 years ago, Some of my best cameras and accessories were from a shop in the Quay as well. The duty free prices and availability of international products makes shopping quite worthwhile and attractive. Heritages Quay Shopping Complex with the neighbouring Vendors Mall, Radcliffe Quay, Cruise Port and a host of other attractions and establishments make Antigua a popular destination. With Entertainment, some local and cultural and others seasonal a visit is quite fulfilling. Apart from Shopping and entertainment, I find myself just visiting to chilax. Jewelry, Clothing, accessories, Electronics and Perfumes are just some of the many Duty free Items available for Purchase. More can be said however Heritage Quay is an experience to relish with great delight.
  • It's got a nice vibe with good food and drink options. Plenty of taxi drivers available when needed! It also has lots of ramps for easy accessibility. I took off a star for spotty public WiFi and because I got unhelpful service from a waitress who didn't know anything about her bar and didn't give me correct change. But I did get a chair massage from a lovely guy at a kiosk so it sort of evens out! Overall it's a nice place to hang out while you wait for the ferry.
  • Good for duty free shopping and tourist stuff that you can bring home for family and friends. But nothing local! Very expensive like always in this areas. Lots of people selling tours, it's safe to buy them here. Recommend: The store that sells cosmetic close to Cheers - ask for the Deep Sea cosmetic and buy it! Expensive but so good! Cheers Antigua - good food friendly staff. Take enough money with you. If you want it a bit cheaper and you're more into pizza and stuff like this ask for Big Banana in Redcliff St. Buy Susies Hot Sauce at Vendor's Mall.
