Shirley Heights was named after British colonial governor Sir Thomas Shirley who was known as the man responsible for fortifying English Harbour in the late 1700s. Up on a hillside overlooking the harbor, the Shirley Heights Lookout is a popular picturesque stopover for visitors. Some come to see the massive fortifications on the hill, others to take in the views, and still others to party at The Lookout Restaurant on the hill. Thursdays and Sundays are particularly festive as there are often steel-pan bands to contribute the atmosphere. Come at a quiet hour for undisturbed vistas or join in the lively island spirit. Either way, you won't want to miss the Shirley Heights Lookout.
