In the twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda is English Harbor. Found on the southern shore of Antigua, this region is a hot spot for boating enthusiasts.
The region attributes its name to the Royal Navy of Britain, as it had established a port there in the 18th century. Not much has changed since then, as it continues to be a popular spot for boat to anchor. Because of this, yachting is particularly popular in this region. In fact, the region hosts Sailing Week, the Caribbean’s best known yachting event. Other water sports here include kayaking, fishing and snorkeling. Visitors can learn how to dive at the certified diving schools or take a guided snorkeling tour. Those interested in maritime and local history can visit Nelson’s Dockyard. This museum is named for Horatio Nelson, an English flag officer during the 18th century. Visitors will find historical items and buildings that once serviced people who lived in the area.
English Harbor has an endless supply of activities that will surely entice and entertain all kinds of visitors to this charming island nation.
