We went here as part of our Adventure Antigua trip, the swim there is not very easy (especially with a 2 year old clinging to you) but once there it is worth it! There is quite a lot to see and do, climbing up to a cave with the natural pool inside and walking over the bridge to climb down... More

On our speed boat trip around the Island we stopped here. If you look at the picture, you can see it's shape is that of the continent of Africa!

Visited this awesome site on the Eco Tour organised by Iba at the Galley Bay Resort. We got off the boat and swam to the tiny beach (left side of the photo) and clambered through the cave and up and onto the Bridge. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative. Later we stopped for lunch which was very good,... More

As part of a stop on our Eco Tour with Adventure Antigua, we stopped at Hell's Gate. You had the option of swimming, snorkeling or (which is what I would recommend) go into the Gate's of Hell and come out the other side. I think this was old coral as it was sharp and you had to be careful where... More

We got to observe this during a 365 circumnavigation around the island. Our tour guides were very informed and also shared the story that if you point the compass to 90 degrees and travel several months by boat you would find your way to Africa - the rock is also in the shape of the continent.

No visit to the island of Antigua would be complete unless you visit Hells Gate off of Antigua. You can take numerous tours to visit this wall of rock. We took the Xtreme Circumnav tour with Island Routes but their are several more tours that you can do where you can get up and personal and climb on top. You... More

We booked an ecotour through Antigua Adventures and were not disappointed. The guides were professional, informative, and helpful. The highlight was the swim to HellLs gate, climb into the jacuzzi, and stunning views from a top of the island. Definitely a must see in Antigua! We loved it!
