We were staying at Carlisle Bay so had to drive along here between Swetes and the resort. I have no idea why this could conceivably be classed as a thing to do in Antigua. It's just a windey road through a bit of forest area....More

The village of old Road can be accessed either by Fig ,Tree Drive or along the west coast. When I am being chauffeured my choice is Fig Tree Drive. Going through the rain forest is breath taking. The natural beauty of water, foliage, fruit trees...More

This road can be a little on the wild side, especially at night. The pot holes can jump right out at you :) Cool drive through the day, just keep an eye out for pot holes.

My wife and I partook of a half day Pelican Safari land tour, and the trip from Galley Bay along the western coast, down to Nelsons Dockyard, entailed travelling through this gorgeous stretch of road. Glad we were in comfortable SUV and not the ones...More

I didn't really know what to expect, though everywhere I research Antigua this "place" was mentioned - it's hard to call it a place as it's simply a road through a rain forest - though with some nice views here and there, we managed to...More
