The Inn at English Harbour
Travel Blogs from English Harbour
Antigua is my home for 6 months while working at the Inn at English Harbour. So far I really like Antigua and everything it has to offer. The people are friendly and the nightlife is good.
In the old days it was apparently hard to find secure ports that were easily defensible, with immediate access to the trade winds, yet able to give protection to a ship and be a safe in a hurricane.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Inn at English Harbour
The Inn was a fantastic choice with a great setting nestled between English Harbour and Shirley Heights, two of the island's main attractions. It is intimate yet spacious. The beach restaurant serves a fantastic breakfast overlooking the bay. The food is great and fresh and the Italian Manager makes sure there is always some italian twist in the menue. There is plenty to do outside of sunbathing, with two tenniscourts, seakayaks and snorkeling gear available at no charge during daytime. A boat service is run to bring guests over to english harbour at their convenience. It was a little bit of paradise.
