Best seen by boat on the way in to English harbour. The tour boats tend to stop there to allow people to snorkel and swim. Interesting viewing but probably not worth a trip just for that.

ok, so the Pillars were on my "must do list" in Antigua. I knew that we could snorkel there, walk or take a boat. My first recommendation is, if you wish to do it on your own (drive and snorkel) bring your own snorkeling equipment...More

I saw this natural wonder on a three month stay in Antigua. I swam from Galleon beach to the point, the pillars are on the far side not visible from the beach. The pillars emerge into the water so they are difficult to get to....More

Very beautiful area, able to view the pillars up close. Water a little choppy, but beautiful. If you can, take a boat tour of the island, not too long, and worth the ride. Traveled in May of 2017.

It's just some rocks that have been eroded into the shapes of pillars. I wouldn't make a special journey to see them. If you see them as part of a boat trip (like we did) then fine.

We went out from Galleon Beach with our wonderful experienced guide, Bernie from Snorkeling Antigua. We did not go right up to the Pillars but close enough. The water is deeper but very clear so you can see everything including tons of fish, coral and...More

Stopped by here while on the Adventure Antigua Circumnav excursion, the rocks are amazing. Snorkeling here is so fun, there was so much to see that I thought I would miss the boat!

While the area is scenic, so are many of the other areas on the island. I don't think that I'd go out of my way to visit. I was diving in the area, so my focus was under water, and I can tell you it's a fine dive site.
