If you are in Antigua and scuba diving, make sure to dive with Mamora bay Divers out of St James club resort, they visit the Pillars of Hercules as a dive site and its a very nice dive.

Loads of fish and neat underwater rock formations. The swim out of the harbor is pretty easy and there is not much current. We were close to the rocks that whole time and had not one issue

Excellent place to snorkel . Lots of beautiful fish and coral. Pillars very impressive too. Visited this place whilst on a 360 boat trip of the island.

Best seen from the sea. Define the entrance to English harbour which is quite difficult to identify from seaward. See the pillars and you can see the entrance. Quite spectacular.

I had four dives right off the pillars and all 4 were fantastic. The reefs are colorful, the fish were plentiful and the species very diverse. I highly suggest this as a dive spot.

We did an extreme circumnavigation tour around Antigua and this was one of the stops. We got off the boat and snorkeled here and it was beautiful!

Coming from the original pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) I am not impressed by the formation as it doesn't live up to its name. Yes they are pretty to look at but that's about it. I didn't find them amazing and i wasn't left in awe....More

We saw this geological phenomenon whilst on a catamaran tour around the island. It is quite spectacular and something we have never seen before. Well worth a view.

We visited the pillars via a speedboat tour of the island, it is only accessible via boat. We stopped off to get photos and to then go snorkelling in the area infront of the pillars. A lovely sight but easily missed if you don't do...More

While the area is scenic, so are many of the other areas on the island. I don't think that I'd go out of my way to visit. I was diving in the area, so my focus was under water, and I can tell you it's a fine dive site.
