4x4 Antigua Discover Adventure

Duration: Half Day

4x4 Antigua discover adventure

Located in the Leeward Islands in the heart of the Caribbean, Antigua is renowned for its stunning scenery. Blessed with many natural harbours, hundreds of pristine white sandy beaches and crystal clear azure waters, holiday makers flock here every year to experience a small piece of paradise. This tour will enable you to explore some of the most beautiful places on the island as you embark on a safari jeep ride to remote areas off the beaten track. Immerse yourself in the folklore, culture, history and natural beauty of Antigua on a tropical adventure to remember.

Your friendly local guide will give you a warm welcome as you step into the zebra-stripped, safari Land Rover that will drive you to beautiful places inaccessible to others. Along the way, your informative guide will keep you entertained with folklore stories and fascinating facts about the culture and history of Antigua. The first stop on your journey is Convents Hill, where you can enjoy magnificent views of Falmouth Harbour in the south of the island. The British Navy was stationed at this natural harbour during the 1700s.

Your driver will serve you drinks from the onboard bar before driving to Potworks Dam, the largest expanse of freshwater in the Eastern Caribbean. Stretching one mile long and half a mile wide when full, the reservoir was built in the early 1960s to supply residents in eastern Antigua with water. This is an interesting bird watching site as many endemic and migratory birds can be spotted around the lake.

By now you will have undoubtedly built up an appetite, so we make our way to Betty’s Hope Estate for a delicious lunch in picturesque surroundings. Located on 100 acres of beautiful park grounds, this restored sugar plantation is the largest in Antigua and it hosts the only working wind-powered sugar mill in the Caribbean. The plantation was founded around 1650, after which hundreds of Africans lived out their lives here and on similar sugar estates during the 1800s.

After lunch, we drive onwards to "Devils Bridge", an impressive natural limestone rock formation on the north-eastern shore of the island. This unique bridge was sculpted over hundreds of years by the powerful Atlantic waves. Before heading back to the hotel, there is just enough time for relaxation at the beautiful Long Bay Beach on the east coast. Soak up the sun on powdery soft white sands and enjoy a refreshing swim in the alluring turquoise waters. Let your cares float away in paradise surroundings. This tour is a wonderful way to experience the best of the Caribbean during your holiday in Antigua.
