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. Falmouth Harbour and English Harbour sit side by side, almost touching at the closest point, and they meet all of the above …
... windy as you can see. Great place though. The story's here say that when the slaves had had too much they used to throw themselves off the bridge, mmmm I couldn't go anywhere near the bridge let alone walk on it! I spent most of the time there staring out to sea at the MASSIVE waves !! The latest thing with Chilli Chilli is that the shower pump and the hot water have now broken. It's never ending and poor Tim is having ...
... system! Some good light hearted banter between the nations. We sit on deck as we come into Falmouth Harbour Antigua. A beautiful bay with some stunning yachts.

We depart on the 1100hrs tender for the jetty in Falmouth Harbour. We ...
... one leg of my evening flight had been cancelled and an overnighter in St Lucia was on the cards! St Vincent was beautiful and it was fun to visit the set and film crew base of Pirates of the Caribbean.
I arrived on Antigua eventually, together with a new friend Susan who it turned out would be on the same race boat as me later that week. I am glad I took Liz's advice and found myself a place on a small ketch for the Antigua Classic Regatta. It was quite an experience ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
