INTRODUCING ENGLISH HARBOUR
England’s colonial past has created a glorious holiday destination for today’s discerning traveller. This thriving and lively harbour was once home to Horatio Nelson, and nearby Falmouth Harbour is worth a visit too. But make time to relax. Relish the deliciously warm climate and beautiful Antiguan sands on the doorstep of your luxury beach resort.
A gorgeous Georgian harbour, luxury yachts and beautiful Antigua as the backdrop.
Things to do
Nelson’s Dockyard is justly known as one of the world’s best examples of a Georgian naval port. Horatio himself was Commander here, and you’ll find restored historic buildings and plenty of intriguing artefacts from his time here.
You’ll never get the Sunday blues again. Shirley Heights is just a short stroll away, and every Sunday the locals celebrate the start of the new week with a party here. You’ll find plenty of food and drink on offer, so join in and raise a glass to the new Monday.
With two beautiful harbours moments from your luxury hotel, you’ll find that English Harbour is a favourite with yachtsmen from across the world. Make sure to take a boat trip while you’re here. And if you’re here in December, don’t miss the international yacht show.
Walk up from the harbour to Dow’s Hill and the observation decks where you’ll be greeted with a breathtaking view of the harbour and the island below you.
