Shirley Heights


Once a military guardhouse, Shirley Heights now plays host to a restaurant/bar which has become famous for its Sunday afternoon barbecue parties, complete with live bands. There are crumbling ruins to explore, and some of the best views in the whole of the Caribbean out over the island. On a clear day it is possible to see as far as Montserrat and Guadeloupe. The heights are also a great vantage point from which to watch Sailing Week, the famous annual sailing and yachting regatta in Antigua.
