Outdoor Activities

Unquestionably the biggest tourist draw on the island, this charming town is steeped in history. The key to English Harbour's historical appeal is Nelson's Dockyard, a port of entry dating back to 1743. Now managed by Antigua's National Park system, the cultural heritage site is a hub of activity filled with hotels, shops, restaurants, a museum, and more. Tours are available several times daily, so you can get the most out of the bustling attraction. Apart from the dockyard, English Harbour is home to several historic forts and has all the fixings of a quaint town. Make a day of it by staying for lunch!
