Antigua South Coast Horizon Eco Tour

Duration: Half Day

Antigua South Coast Horizon Eco tour

The beautiful island of Antigua is blessed with some of the most spectacular scenery in the Caribbean. Glorious white sandy beaches, lush vegetation and crystal clear lagoons are just some of the coastal highlights. If you are looking for an eco adventure in paradise during your holiday in Antigua, South Coast Horizon offers some of the most memorable experiences on the island. Explore exotic gardens, mangrove lagoons and coral reefs with minimal impact on the environment. You won’t want to leave!

Located on the southern coast of Antigua, South Coast Horizon lies between the Boggy Peak mountain range in the north and the Caribbean Sea on the south, with the islands of Montserrat, Redonda and Guadeloupe on the horizon. This idyllic location is the ideal starting point for eco tours, which are carefully planned to preserve, protect and enhance the marine environment and surrounding area whilst revealing its breathtaking natural beauty to visitors.

Enjoy a walk through the exotic palm tree garden, which is home to 900 palms and eight different species, including the Date Alexander, the Butterfly and Fan palms. You can also see a unique collection of exotic birds which are kept in a purpose-built aviary, whilst listening to the songs of the native birds nestling in the trees. There is also a boardwalk which spans over a 300ft lagoon, and even a fantasy Pyramid Park where the three kings stand as a tribute to the protection Antigua is believed to have had from God through many hurricanes.

One of South Coast Horizon’s most popular tours is the Lagoon Tour, which will lead you through a beautiful lagoon surrounded by coastal mangroves. Home to five watercourses and five mangrove tunnels, it is the only one of its kind on Antigua. These pristine ecosystems are rich in marine life, which also inhabit the impressive barrier reefs surrounding Antigua. Travel across the water by kayak and look out for endemic birds, animals and fish on your journey.

At the end of the lagoon (between the lagoon and Goat Head Hill) lies a secluded white sandy beach which is protected by Cades Reef, Antigua's largest coral reef. This is one of the most popular places for snorkeling in the area as the clear azure waters host an abundance of brightly-coloured tropical fish as well as eagle rays, turtles, nursing and reef sharks, barracudas, green and spotted moray eels, lobsters and hundreds of colourful hard and soft coral species.

From here, hiking trails are available to the top of Goat Head Hill, where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Antigua’s southern coastline and lush mangrove forests. This is a great opportunity for bird watching and photography. Whichever tour you choose, South Coast Horizon will ensure that you have the experience of a lifetime.
