    Old world charm in a New World paradise port of call. This historical shipping center is now the center of all things luxurious on the island of Antigua. Cruise around the marina or climb up to the lofty Shirley Heights for a party you will never forget.

Find Hotels in English Harbour:


On the southernmost portion of the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, English Harbor has a long and storied history. Originally developed in the eighteenth century as a harbor base for the British Royal Navy, this area is full of remnants of fortifications and historic port-side activities. Nelson’s Dockyard can be found here. You’ll find lots of souvenirs and informational displays about the history of this area at the dockyard, which happens to encompass a larger area known Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Maintaining the structural integrity of various historic buildings is the main focus of this park where you’ll find Clarence House, Shirley Heights, and various other pristine historic spots. Still, the major focus of English Harbor is in the present, with a bustling waterfront and various ocean activities like sailing and snorkeling. Charters and tours depart regularly, so make sure to take some time to head to south Antigua to enjoy this fascinating harbor location.
