Shirley Heights is worth the drive just for the amazing view of English Harbour below and its environs; a view made even more magical at sunset. Part of the Nelson's Dockyard National Park, Shirley Heights is a large military complex of extensive ruins spread out over the hills on the east coast of English Harbour. Given Antigua's value as a sugar producer, defense was emphasized. The function of Shirley Heights, therefore, was to protect the naval yard, as well as to serve as a holding area for military units destined for the British colonies in the Leewards Islands. At an elevation of about five hundred feet above sea level, the mentioned view is one of the area's star attractions; no surprise then that it is also one of the most photographed spots in the Caribbean. On Sunday afternoons, the view comes with the appetizing aroma of barbecue, the intoxicating influence of rum punch, the harmonious hum of steelband music and, later still, the enticing energy of live soca.
Nelson's Dockyard, named for famed British admiral, Horatio Nelson, is considered to be one of Antigua's most prized historic possessions. It is not only a great monument to the past but is now a lively focus of activity. In the Dockyard are all the facilities that make it a year-round home for yachts and the floating palaces of the famous.
Fig Tree Drive is the most scenic drive throughout the island, winding through the Shekerley Mountains, reputed to be the refuge of runaway slaves. "Fig" is the local word for bananas in Antigua, and it is from this crop that the area derives its name. This area is in the Southern part of the country, where the Wallings Reservoir and Boggy Peak, the island's highest point, are also located.
