Highlights of Antigua Accessible Shore Excursion

start-4

This highlights of Antigua Shore Excursion is the perfect tour to explore the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua from the comfort of your own private accessible van, while enjoying lively commentary by your local private guide. On this shore excursion, you will see and explore the best accessible highlights this island has to offer, including the lush tropical nature and beautiful sandy beaches – at a pace that fits your accessibility and energy needs.

Your Accessible Antigua Shore Excursion begins when you meet you friendly guide/driver by the St. John’s cruise dock. Board your accessible van to start your adventure with a scenic drive to Betty’s Hope. Betty’s Hope was a sugarcane plantation, established in 1650. Shortly after the island had become an English colony, it flourished as a successful agricultural industrial enterprise during the centuries of slavery. Betty’s Hope is no longer operational as a plantation, but the restored mills and the beautiful site with its ruins are must see.

Next is a stop at Devil’s Bridge, a natural arch carved by the sea from soft and hard limestone ledges of the Antigua formation, a geological division of the flat north-eastern part of Antigua. A bridge was created when a soft part of the limestone eroded away by action of Atlantic breakers over countless centuries. Devil’s Bridge was called so, because a lot of slaves from the neighboring estates use to go there and throw themselves overboard. It was an area of mass suicide, so people used to say the Devil was there. Despite the tragic history, the bridge is still one of the most beautiful landmarks of the island.

Continuing from here, you will reach Nelson’s Dockyard in the historic heart of the island, the English Harbour. The English Harbour has been the home to many famous naval officers including Rodney, Nelson, Collingwood, Prince William Henry, Hood, and Cochrane. Today the Dockyard at the English Harbour is named after the victor of the battle of Trafalgar, Admiral Lord Nelson. Explore Nelson’s Dockyard, where many of the restored buildings house modern facilities that still reflect the naval heritage of English Harbour, and private yachts now replace Naval vessels in the harbour, You will have plenty of time to explore this amazing, picturesque harbor and if you like, you can enjoy a delicious lunch at an accessible restaurant, before its time to go back to the cruise dock.
