The best view of the island and harbor are from the fort, and you have a birds-eye view of Eric Clapton’s magnificent 14,000 sq. ft. villa, Standfast Point, situated on a 45 peninsula. Side note: The villa is available to rent! Contact Barbara Japal, Caribrep Villas, info@CaribrepVillas.com, 268.463.2070.
Antigua is a fairly undeveloped and rather poor island. The downtown leaves a lot to be desired and you will not find shopping like you do on the other more prosperous islands like St. Barth's and St. Maartan.
The Antigua airport leaves a lot to be desired, but a badly needed new airport is being constructed next door and should be operational within a few months.
Goodbye to Antigua
