Great music, from steel band to rock music. The food and atmosphere excellent on a Sunday (party night). Get there early to get a seat. The views are really good.

Utterly gorgeous views. Unmissable. Really gives you a sense of perspective and history. A guide is not necessary.

The best view of the Sunset in Antigua. Awesome BBQ and Live Bands on a Sunday! For a quieter experience check it out in the week.

We hired a driver to show us around. It was $200 USD for the entire day which we split amongst three of us. It was the best way to tour as the driver stopped for us to beach it and snorkle and he also took us to a local... More

We visited during the day and for the Sunday evening barbeque. The gift shop was open both times, but there were far more vendors Sunday evening. Sorry, but we missed seeing the museum.
