Discover the hidden gems of Antigua’s rugged terrain on our 5.5-hour tour from St. John’s. Our modified Safari vehicles are the perfect mode of transportation to explore the island’s stunning natural beauty, while our knowledgeable guide will take you on a journey through Antigua’s rich history and culture.
Our first stop will be at the awe-inspiring Devil’s Bridge, located in the northeast of Antigua. This natural wonder has been shaped over hundreds of thousands of years by the relentless crashing of the Atlantic Ocean waves. The sound of the waves and the salty breeze will surround you while you gaze at the natural arch formed by the erosion of the limestone rock. The rugged terrain, consisting of ancient reef formations, adds to the natural splendor of this location, creating the perfect photo opportunity.
As we continue our adventure, we will stop at Long Bay Beach, where you will have the chance to enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Sunbathe, swim, or simply relax while taking in the breathtaking view of the ocean.
Next, we will visit Betty’s Hope, one of the earliest sugar plantations on the island, dating back to 1651. Here, you will discover the history of sugar production on the island while admiring the preserved sugar mill towers.
Our tour will then take us through the picturesque countryside to the Historical English Harbour, home to Nelson’s Dockyard, a marina, and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the dockyard, which was once a strategic naval base, and learn about its role in the island’s history. The museum, shops, and restaurants housed within the dockyard offer a glimpse of Antigua’s rich culture.
We will conclude our tour with a visit to Shirley Heights, a restored military lookout and gun battery, where you will be able to bask in the spectacular panoramic view of the island and the surrounding Caribbean Sea. From this elevated viewpoint, you will be able to capture the perfect photo to remember your incredible journey.
Pick-up is included with this activity. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes, swimwear, sunscreen, and sunglasses, and bringing a camera to capture memories of this unforgettable experience.
