Antigua and Barbuda Off The Beaten Path

  • Antigua & Barbuda Humane Society

    My wife and I are big animal lovers especially of cats (since we have our kitty at home). Our resort had many local stray cats that prowled the property in search of a mouse, bird or lizard to eat. The cats were horribly skinny and many had missing parts of their ear, tail and big clumps of fur missing. Of course my wife felt terrible and from day...

  • Lighthouses and Light Ships

    I'm not sure if this is a picture of the 1939 Sandy Island Lighthouse or not. It looks like the description which says that it is aluminum skeletal tower with gallery. I took the photo from the cruise ship and the lighthouse in question is located on a low island about 2.5 miles west of the entrance to the harbor of St. John's, Antigua. If it is...

  • Stanford park near airport

    A large area close to the airport, bought by texan billionaire Allen Stanford, has developed into a well-kept park with several facilities. While the high-class restaurants, the cricket grounds and the finance center are not on my list of preferred attractions, the park itself was. It offers you a nice place to walk around while waiting fro your...

  • Graveyards at Shirley Heights

    When at Shirley Heights, take a minute and see the old graveyards. There are two of them: One (larger one) close to the road at the beginning of Carpenter Rock Trail. The other one is behind the ruins of the old cistern, at the beginning of Jones Valley Trail. These 18th century graveyards were abandoned and the tombstones are missing or damaged....

  • The wild ocean!

    Many organised tours won't take you to Devil's Bridge, but if you hire a car or get a friendly taxi driver, it's a fascinating place to go, especially if you like watching raw ocean power!Devil's Bridge is just a rocky stretch of the east coast where the Atlantic ocean is always quite rough. The way that the rock falls means that the waves come...

  • Turner's Beach - One of Antigua's Many

    With so many beaches to choose from, and just 1 day in Antigua, it was vital we made a good choice for our 2 hour stop! We enlisted the help of Sean John our personal local tour guide for the day & of course, having lived in Antigua all his life, he chose well! Even so, I can't imagine there is actually a 'bad' beach on the island. Turner's Beach...

  • Darkwood Beach

    We stumbled across Darkwood Beach whilst driving through Fig Tree Drive one day.What a find !! - In comparison to other beaches on the island this beach was deserted most times we visited. It really was like being left alone on a desert island.The water at Darkwood Beach was crystal clear - so much so that you could see fish swimming around...

  • Fig Tree Drive

    Whether you have hired your own jeep or taking an excursion Fig Tree Drive is a great scenic drive.Whilst on Antigua we decided to rent a jeep from Dollar and what an experience the Fig Tree Drive was. Our first couple of days on the island saw torrential rain and as you can see from the photo at times it was like driving through rapids.After you...

  • Lovely Lynns

    this small drinking hole is on the way to St. Johns from the Jolly Harbour villas. It is on the right hand side on the way to St Johns and looks just like a small hut but do stop!Lynn owns this pub/bar and sells all different types of drinks. She also has loads of cats and kittens.It is right in the middle of the rainforest, truly idyllic

  • Darkwood Beach

    i cannot find words to describe this beach. It is featured in many of the books about the island, but you have to see it to believe it.It is on the west coast, near the jolly harbour and jolly beach resorts. It has its own bar, and there is a lady who sells t-shirts and gifts (shes lovely).Very friendly staff, i bet they dont realise that they are...

    There is great windsurfing on the north side of the island, a small shack with an crazy frenchman offering lessons at resonable rates with reasonable gear. The wind is good, and consistant, the water warm and shallow enough in close that the beginner won't have to concentrate on swimming. Its just near the airport on the north side of the island,...

    There are many catamaran tours that offer a day of sailing with lots of drinks,partying and maybe a stop for snorkeling. This is fine if all you want is a party, but for something different, try the Eco Adventure tour with Eli, Antigua's best amabassador. This tour was great!The tour went like this; we left Jolly Harbour with two stops to meet...

    We got the public minibus into St Johns. This in itself was an adventure, our own particular attempt at the world record for the most people you could fit in a 12 seater minibus was just below that in the Guiness book. Still it was fun and an eye opener on seeing how the locals lived.We took an unofficial tour in an MPV with a few couples . Our...

    Devils Bridge. Find a cab driver at your hotel and get to know him. Make arrangements with him to give you a tour of the island and express interest in the island. The Antigans are very proud of their home. Devils bridge is an area where the Atlantic blows up through fissures in the rocks-really cool.
