Fodor's Expert Review Shirley Heights Lookout

Elsewhere on Antigua Fodor's Choice

The ruins of this timeworn military base transform into a party venue—one that its namesake, Sir Thomas Shirley, would undoubtedly frown upon. After 4:30 pm on Sunday and Thursday, strong rum punch starts to flow, steel pans stir visitors into a frenzy, and the scent of barbecue wafting through the air is irresistible. The lookout is packed full of swaying partiers by 7 pm. It’s $10 to enter and be sure to wear sensible shoes.
