The view from Shirley Heights on the island of Antigua is one of the most spectacular in the eastern Caribbean. Overlooking the English and Falmouth Harbours, on a clear day you'll see the islands of Guadeloupe and Montserrat
Shirley Heights was named after Sir Thomas Shirley, who was the Governor of the Leeward islands in 1781. Britain had lost all of her colonies in the Caribbean with the exception of Antigua and Barbados. So a lot of effort was placed on boosting Antigua's security.
