Take your child to Shirley Heights, aka English Harbour. A great view, an outdoor fish barbeque, and the War Museum, which all the boys are going to love. The kids enjoy collecting shells, all the more, there are a lot of them here, of different sizes and types. The biggest shells are usually at Jolly Beach. At Half Moon Bay you and your children can cover yourself with some curative mud. The boys will most likely enjoy jet ski riding or going fishing, where they can catch a tuna, a barracuda, or a dorado. You can also go on a “journey” to Barbuda – there is something to see there, so any children will like to change a scenery and get new impressions.
Antigua - Caribbean ocean Little history fans would like to see Fort James, Fort Barrington, Nelson's Dockyard, Admiral's House Museum. Nelson’s Dockyard and Admiral’s House are directly related to Admiral Nelson – one of the most famous naval commanders of all times. There are no big amusement centers in Antigua and D-Boat is the only thing that can be considered as some kind of aqua park. It is a small boat, where you can eat at a restaurant, enjoy the great view of the island from the open sea, and go down the slides outside the boat. However, there are things to do here for children, and they will remember this place. Beautiful nature, clean beaches, friendly local people, flora and fauna, the landmarks of the colonial times – all of this will definitely impress any child.
