Through the garden you come directly to the coast and a small sandbeach about 50 yds.away.
The garden has many exotic palmtrees and flowering tress and shrubs. Many birds, incl.several different hummingbirds can be seen here and seabirds can be observed from the coast.
Interesting informations.: Our property is ideally located to explore the island. Leaving the gate to the east you first come to a beautful sandy beach with shallow aereas at both ends. Going on you pass the American University of Antigua and come to the
airport. If you follow the main road, it will lead you to the beaches on the northeast (Long Bay) and the southeast
(Halfmoon Bay). Turning west after the airport, you come into town and can go to the Dickenson Bay or Runaway Bay
beaches, or, turning south, you come to the beaches on the west and southwest coast and many big hotels. After a
few miles you can go into a small road and climb Boggy Peak (now Mount Obama), 1319 ft. After that you can drive
through the rainforest and will reach the village of Liberta. From here you have a magnificent view of Falmouth and
English Harbour. At the end of the road is Nelsons Dockyard and turning left, you will come to Shirley Heights.
Whats happening ?: You can obtain the best information on whats happening by visiting the website www.antiguanice.com.
You can try to visit as many beaches as possible (there are 365, one for every day of the year) or do one of the
many excursions with boats around the island or for a picnic on the beach. If you like deepseefishing, you can charter one of our yachts (www.charternet.com/charters/obsession)
Going around the island as described on § 1 is a very nice tour for a full day. And you can certainly sit on a beach and
do nothing at all, after all its your vacation.
And if you have money to burn, visit one of the dutyfree shopping centres in town (Heritage Quay or Redcliffe Quay.)
What to bring ?: Most visitors bring too many things. You really don't need much clothing, unless you intend to go out every night. But
the atmosphere in most places is relaxed and only one hotel asks for jacket and tie if you want to have dinner with them. Shorts will do in most cases, but please, do not go in a bikini into town !
You need a good sunscreen, a good hat or cap and a change of swimsuits. If you want to go snorkeling, bring your own
fins and mask, that goes for diving as well, but you do not need tanks, vests or regulators, the diveshops have hat.
You can buy most medicines on the island, but if you need certain prescription drugs, better bring enough for your stay
Since you will be selfcatering, all foods are available in very well stocked supermarkets (they are more expensive here
than in Europe), so you really don't need to bring anything.
Do you need a Laptop ? Drivers License is important !
