Things to do in Antigua
Antigua is a haven for those that love to bask in fantastic sunshine and enjoy the calming crystal waters of the Caribbean sea, however, there are a variety of things to see and do on the island if you want to experience more than just the sandy shores.
One of the most impressive views you can experience is from Shirley Heights, offering spectacular vistas across the English Harbour, this picturesque spot was named after Sir Thomas Shirley, Governor of the Leeward Islands. Perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and a BBQ, local bands also gather here to play a mixture of Caribbean and international music making this an ideal place to relax.
If you fancy an adventure that involves a bit of a hike, then a trip to Fort Berkley is a must for those that enjoy military history. Once defended by 25 canons, Fort Berkley was a crucial part of Antigua’s defence. When exploring the fort, there are several interesting monuments including the 200-year-old bomb-proof powder magazine which could hold up to 300 barrels of gunpowder.
