ANTIGUA The tranquil island of Antigua lies low in the enticing waters of the Caribbean - brushed by the passing trade winds, the offshore clouds destined for her more mountainous neighbours. At English Harbour, Nelson’s Dockyard affords a picturesque glimpse of naval life in the Admiral’s day; survey the scene from Shirley Heights nearby - white yachts now moored where warships once lay at anchor.
