The view was breathtaking! The food and service were great ! We came on a quiet afternoon with our guide. Our lunch was ordered in advance and was promptly ready after we took some wonderful pictures

beautiful views, full bar and apparently live music sometimes (Saturday's ??) You will not find a place with better views while eating or having a drink.

The view from Shirley Heights must be one of the most iconic, throughout the Caribbean. Looking out over English Harbour and Falmouth, the views are spectacular. Firstly you will be greeted by an amazing late afternoon sunset accompanied by a local steel band playing calypso music and not forgetting a few rum punches or hearty snacks from the BBQ. There...

Only go on Thursdays and Sundays if you want the view drowned out by loud music. The food service is inconsequential. It's the great view. Consider the hike down to Table Rock, or even part way.

This can be a very busy stop, with tour buses and taxi tours, but that should not deter you from coming here. The views (behind the restaurant in the historic building) are magnificent and are worth your time. There is a restaurant and bar, but we didn't have a meal, and there are often vendors around.

We were there on New Years and so the museum was closed but there were some vendors present. The best thing however was the gorgeous overlook of English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard. Simply amazing opportunity for some great photography. While you are there, go up to the Blockhouse for additional dynamite views of the East side of Antigua and the... More

The views are amazing looking down onto the bay, English harbour where ships would take cover from storms and other warships during historic wars... the dockyard with museums and hundreds of years of history. And if you are lucky you may see dolphins jumping from the depths... Shirley heights provides wonderful views on this historic bay... take a trip and... More

This was part of our island tour and is a good point for fantastic views. It was very overcast and rainy on our day which spoiled the views somewhat!

We were told to visit here before leaving the island, every Sunday they have a sunset party and it was certainly that. Great food, drinks, amazing views of the sunset, steel bands and a real party atmosphere, we had the best time and it so worth it, although I am told you can do this yourself cheaper, we paid 45...
