I visited here as part of our 10 night holiday with my parents and let me just say this. It is a bit on the expensive side but the quality of the place makes it well worth the money. The entertainment (two bands) were top...More

I hiked up a trail from the beach to the lookout. There were a lot of tourists present. Vendors were selling shirts, hats, jewelry and other things. The real attraction here is the view - it's awesome.

It's a must see experience if you're visiting Antigua. Breathtaking. A really good night out to be had. Not for kids though.

Shirley Heights is - in a word - surreal. From the views, to the drinks, to the Steel Drum Orchestra...Shirley Heights was beyond our already high expectations. Be ready for an amazing time with great memories!

View was out of this world and great for pictures. Food was good. Great flavor. Quiet and peaceful. Couple of vendors, but not pushy.

Crowded, noisy, mediocre food, LOUD. Seems like a tourist trap that is highly over-rated. For what it is, it's also expensive - for food and for getting there.

We are a small but proud restaurant and bar located at the historical 'Lookout', part of the Shirley Heights military complex. The Lookout affords a breathtaking view over English and Falmouth Harbours. The view from Shirley Heights Lookout is a perfect setting to watch a sunset. Behind the catchment on the highest point, 490ft (150m) above sea level, was the Signal Station from which a system of flags was used by day and guns by night to convey messages to St. John's by way of Great Fort George on Monk's Hill. Our opening hours are generally from 9am-6pm during which lunch is offered. We extend our hours to accommodate dinner on the weekend and also to host our exciting party labeled 'Sunday Sunset Barbecue' from 4pm-10pm. Our Seasonal Thursday Afternoon Barbeque runs from November until May.
