Shirley Heights Tours

17 reviews
Home to the most famous view in all of Antigua, as well as the island's residential party place, no trip is complete without a visit to Shirley Heights. Overlooking English and Falmouth Harbours, the panoramic view from Shirley Heights takes in the neighboring islands of Guadalupe and Montserrat, the latter of which is home to an active volcano. While the views are spectacular any time of day, nothing can beat a night time visit where you can watch the sun set over the Caribbean.

A night trip to Shirley Heights isn't just about the view, however. The home of the most happening parties on Antigua, the Shirley Heights Lookout Bar and Restaurant is the place to be on Thursday and Sunday nights. Every Thursday a steel drum band plays and they offer food from the grill. On Sunday nights, they host a huge barbecue with two live bands for plenty of dancing, drinking, and feasting late into the warm Caribbean night.

Practical Info

Shirley Heights is located on the southern tip of Antigua, near the English Harbour. It is about a 30-minute drive from the airport.
