We visited on a recent visit to Antigua and were very impressed. Spotlessly clean very well tended with fabulous boats and yachts to see. Plenty of viewing areas all attractive. Certainly a must on a visit to this beautiful island

The fact that Nelsons dock yards exits from the times of the Pirates and British rule and discovery of the Carribean. Shows you a time of history of expansion not to mention the construction of a port in that time. As well as the cost in human strife. A glimpse into a past of Human history that you walk through smell touch and touch in the setting of Island life. Then to come forward to see it still in use by those of means by the sailing vessels of today. Worth a step back in time....

Nelson's dockyard was a lovely spot to explore some of maritime history of Antigua, as well as a nice area for bars and restaurants. Lovely place for people watching and strolling along looking at the boats.
