Beautiful beaches and great snorkeling -- a short hike to the top of the island provides amazing views of Antigua and all of the other tiny islands surrounding it.

When you live in Antigua sometimes just getting off island is a necessity and going to Great Bird Island is like going on Vacation for a day. We usually charter a boat and go over for a full day of eating, drinking and merry making. The island is great as it is close enough to get to without you losing too much time out of your day and its big enough for you to not feel like you are stepping on others' toes. You can snorkel and swim, walk and talk. If all you want to do is lounge around and relax then you can do that too. For me its a perfect day out and a perfect day off island!

Great Bird Island is a small island (20 acre) about 3kms north east of Antigua. The only way to get to the island is by tour boat. The island is home to the Antiguan Racer which is a small snake. We were not lucky enough to see one on the day but apparently Great Bird Island is the only place in the world to find them. Great Bird Island was named as such because of the large population of birds found living and nesting on the island. We were able to see the frigate birds nesting and several brown pelicans flying and 'floating' about. The views from the top of the island are spectacular. The walk to the top is only short, easy although quite hot going, but you are rewarded with a lovely breeze at the top.

Enjoyed a 1/2 day sail out to Bird Island. Enjoyed the short hike up to the top and the amazing views. Great beach for swimming.
