  • Beautiful island. Quiet beaches only accessible by private boat or on a shared trip. Two beaches and the south one has beautiful coral and it is in good condition. Take your own food and drink...

  • Beautiful stop for some lunch on the beach. Listening to all the birds who nest on this island. Waters are absolutely amazing with fishes swimming around you.
  • As a child growing up in Antigua this was one of my favourite playgrounds. You can do snorkelling as well as hike up to the top of the hill and watch all the birds flying around. The seagulls are a lot of fun to feed and they love pieces of bread. You might even be lucky enough to see the rare racer snake on the island.
