Great spot to view Red Billed Tropic Birds from the peak of the island, just an easy stroll from the beach. It was very windy but I don't know if this was just on this day or a regular occurrence. Good snorkelling just offshore as...More

This was a stop on our catamaran tour, we did a short walk around part of the island and then a swim in the bay. Nice hike for the nature lover but no Racers spotted :( maybe next time.

A number of companies have this location on their itineraries and it is well worth getting to. Lovely beach for lazing around and also coral outcrops a short distance offshore where you will see a range of fish species and good chance of seeing stingrays...More

Visited twice with two different tours. Beach/water is nice. Can find conch and other shells here was able to get a sea urchin shell home in one piece. Walk to look out is pretty easy, worth the view.

This place has amazing views!! Defiantly something to see. You can stay on the beach or hike up a fairly easy trail to the top of the Hill.

Great trip from sandals fabulous food and drink and great guides. There is no life to see when snorkelling but there are loads of conch shells and the island itself is like paradise. Well worth the trip one of the highlights of Antigua.

The hike is very short but steep with rock surfaces that at times provide minimal traction. Not a trail for those with any limitations. Beautiful views from the top make it worth the effort!

Mainly we stayed on the beach and just took a short walk up the hill. We did see a snake and caught it on video.
