English Harbor

My husband and I are going to English Harbor in July and would appreciate all comments. How is the beach, beautiful, Im sure. Is this a wild area? Just kidding! Please let us know your favorite things about this area.

Take the water taxi over to Galleon Beach for snorkelling and the hike up Lookout Trail to Shirley Heights.

English Harbour is beautiful. There are a number of beaches, including Galleon and Pigeon, and plenty of great hikes and scenery. You may find that many bars and restaurants are not open as it's low season, but there will still be plenty of choices.

Not sure if your wild means nature or nightlife - there's plenty of the first, and not much of the second at this time of year!

Do take a good wander round Nelson's Dockyard. and consider taking the time to look at some more of the island - either by boat, taxi or rent a car.

Thank you so much! We are all about relaxing, hiking and hanging out at the beach. We never really worry about nightlife but we do love exploring new islands. What is your favorite restaurant on the island?

We walked 5-10 minutes from Nelson's Dockyard and had a good lunch at the Lime and Coconut. The menu is not large, but the food was well prepared with fresh ingredients and the service was excellent.
