Absolutely beautiful!!

Highly recommend seeing this spectacular view!! The best time to go is when the sun is setting. We went on our last night & so glad we got there right in time to see a magnificent sunset!! It was absolutely beautiful!!

Thursday nights at Shirley Heights
Jan 2021 • Friends
We attempted to join the Sunday sunset party but we’re told we needed to get on the reservation list beforehand due to Covid... so we came back for the smaller version Thursday night.
Absolutely brilliant! Steele bands, street food- mainly bbq and some of the best views you will see in Antigua!
It’s $10US to enter, but it’s worth it. Our group of 4 were given our own table and it looked like everyone was to have their own table due to Covid regulations being closely followed.

Nice experience, but no real Covid regulations
Jan 2021
We arrived there during sunset and it was an awesome view over the harbour and bay. The Shirly hights Party seemed fun, but the amount of people not wearing masks and maintaining social distance was shocking. The music was really nice and people danced like they never heard of Covid. Our group (one household) was still able to stay away from others and had a good time for ourselves. Also the food was nice and not too expensive.
Would I go there again for the Party? After Covid, definetly, during Covid not again, no. Would I go there even without the party? Also yes, and then you don't even have to worry about crowds.

What a lovely New Year’s Eve
Dec 2020 • Friends
Went with my family and another couple for New Year’s Eve, we loved the place, the view, the food and the music!
Two live bands playing reggae music, such a joy for our ears! Very safe place, everyone was wearing a mask and not many people were there, we had to book a table in advance.
A different end of the year for sure, a place that I’ll keep in my heart.

Christmas Eve
Dec 2020 • Family
Had a lovely evening here even with the Covid-19 guidelines in place. Would love to go back again without these measures as the efforts not to dance were difficult as the music was fab. Views were amazing. We also enjoyed the best Rum punch that we had in Antigua . Food was a bit pricey but tasty.

Felt very well managed and safe. Lots of precautions to maximise social distancing. Great bands and the view of course is outstanding.

Get here by 4pm so you can fully appreciate the views, but then the entertainment starts which is superb, the food is great - all in all it's an experience to not be missed

Reviews led me to believe that the Sunday party was a way to mix with locals. It is not, at all. 100% tourists. Fun stew drum band. Food just Ok. Amazing view. Check it out if you want to party with other tourists. Otherwise, hike up on an evening other than Thursday or Sunday.

Amazing views

Sadly the restaurant and facilities here were closed due to COVID-19, but you could still drive/walk up to the site and enjoy the stunning views. Take a picnic and treat yourself!
