Antigua

I’m just going to throw out the top things we did/ate/drank etc. during the first part of our Antiguan trip, in the south of the island.

Number one… Shirley heights. Now, I have a cat named Shirley and so feel obliged to go anywhere that has her name/take photos of her name (There’s a street on the Bahamas I picture just because it was called Shirley street! Sad….I already know). However, this opportunity is not to be missed even if you have no link to a ‘Shirley’ what so ever! We went on a Sunday and it’s a post church party, with amazing BBQ food. People gather from 3pm onwards for the sunset and coconut water rums (strong but delish).

You can taxi up there or hike like we did! Make sure you ask the locals the trail way or you may end up getting lost for 3kms in 30 degree heat (cue almost crying). However, It’s a sense of accomplishment if you do walk it and then you can eat as much jerk chicken as you like at the top! We washed and changed in their toilets and were ready to dance to the steel band.

In two…. Sunra. It’s a cute little waterfront restaurant hidden behind a discrete entrance that you may miss! Italian food galore and candlelit, fairy light heaven. Make sure you get a rosé.

In three…. the wine. I’ve become a massive fan of rosé blush in the last year and I didn’t think Antigua would have many options but hell they do! And I’ve tried a lot! Even got Richard in to it now haven’t I!

Number four….Galleon beach. Richard is obsessed with snorkelling since I introduced him to it (yep I’m defo taking that) and on this beach he swam with his first Antiguan turtle. Now in Hawaii and Barbados, we found these guys to be chilled and not at all disturbed by a human. Here, they’re a bit more shy until they realise you’re just a silly human and relax in to a slow graceful swim.

And five…. the steak and sushi club. It’s an amazing harbour side restaurant. I opted for the fresh salmon rolls and seaweed with of course, a delightful rosé blush. Richard had a spicy seafood noodle soup which he loved and they had great service too.

Number six….Admirals Inn. Near Nelson’s dockyard, it’s a cute 18th century brick hotel, restaurant and bar with blue painted shutters. If you carry on further towards the dockyard, there is also a great pub and cafe overlooking the boats and it’s here you can get a boat across to Galleon’s beach.

And on to the second part of the trip we go, up to the north of the island of Antigua!
