Things To Do


Hiking

Many of the trails in Antigua are not fully developed but lead to interesting sites and natural wonders. There is a very nice trail in the English Harbor area that leads from Nelson’s Dockyard to Fort Barrington and up to Shirley Heights. Another trail starts from the Half Moon Bay National Park and leads to the promontory looking out to the neighboring island of Guadeloupe. Lastly there are some really good trails through the beautiful rain forest starting at Wallings Dam and going up to the Boggy Peak which is the highest point on the island.


Golf

There are two 18 hole golf courses on the Island which take advantage of the tropical landscapes and sea views. Cedar Valley Golf Club is located in the Northern part of Antigua. Jolly Harbor Golf Course which is located in the Jolly Harbor Marina.

Antigua has many fine golf clubs


Rain Forest and Zipline Tours

The Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tour is a fun exhilarating experience. It starts high above the rain forest canopy and zooms down to the Leap of Faith which is a jump similar to bungee jumping but safer. There are excellent guides available and state of the art harnesses and helmets are provided.
