The closest decent beach to Heritage Quay is Fort Bay, near the northern mouth of the harbor. Runaway Bay and Dickenson Bay are just a little farther north up the coast (about 5 to 10 minutes by taxi), and offer calm, sheltered waters and the civilized niceties that go along with the adjoining beachfront resorts. Half Moon Bay is reputed to be among the island’s finest beaches, but it’s all the way cross-island from St. John’s. If you’re visiting English Harbour, Pigeon Beach is nearby (short drive or 20 minute walk).

The nearest casino—Kings Casino—is located moments from the ship, on Heritage Quay. Visit http://www.kingscasino.com.

Golfers can play a round at the Jolly Harbour Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course. Visitors can play for a daily fee and club rental is available. Visit http://www.jollyharbourantigua.com/golf.

Scuba, snorkel, and windsurfing are all popular activities, thanks to miles of encircling reefs, and the brisk winds on the Atlantic (eastern) side of the island. Snorkeling is possible at many of Antigua’s beaches. Cades Reef is part of a designated off-shore underwater park, and very popular for snorkeling and scuba-diving. The wreck of the Andes, a three-masted merchant ship that sank in 1905, is another popular spot. Sailing is also very popular here—the island hosts an annual major regatta.

Looking for a stingray experience? Antigua has those, too. For more information, visit http://www.stingraycityantigua.com. (Note: Antigua no longer hosts dolphin-swim experiences.)

Devil’s Bridge at the northeastern point of the island is an amazing natural arch, created when the soft limestone was eroded away by the seawater. Devil’s Bridge is located in Indian Town, one of Antigua’s National Parks. Numerous blowholes spouting water surround Indian Town, making for quite a sight.

Cricket is a big sport on Antigua! If this sport interests you, matches can be found on the island at almost any time. For more information, visit http://www.antigua-barbuda.org/agcri01.htm.
