Stayed here off anchor recently and visited the Great Bird Island. Wonderful soft sand and a short walk to the North side and a short climb up to a higher point to see the surroundings. Didn't see the Antiguan racing snake that inhabits this island but did see some exotic birds. Ate on the boat and watched a great sunset here.
Bit tricky to get to with reefs all around.

What an undiscovered paradise island. Approaching by boat looks difficult but is not beyond any reasonable sailor . At the time of visiting there were 3 buoys for mooring. Surprisingly no noise from the airport. We used the south east beach and climbed to the top (only 10 minutes) Great view, Lizards,and lots of birds.

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!
