Journey down to the far south of Antigua to see one of the island's oldest and most beautiful historic districts, English Harbour. This tiny (population of 759), but scenic settlement is a great place to wander around in and enjoy the old-fashioned buildings while learning about the nation's colonial roots.
English Harbour is best known for the many historic sites it is home to including Nelson's Dockyard, a restored British colonial naval station. It also is internationally recognized as a center of sailing and yachting. While visiting, enjoy a walk among the antiquated district's tall brick buildings from the colonial era, or stroll along the harbor and scope out the huge yachts and sailboats that are stationed there. No matter what you do, an afternoon spent in English Harbour is certain to be full of fun and interesting sites.
Located on the far southern tip of Antigua, English Harbour is about a 30-minute drive south of the airport.
