Picture Perfect Adventure
Off the North Coast of Antigua lies the island’s biggest marine park which holds several islets and the picturesque Great Bird Island. Featuring two beaches and coral formations bursting with life, the Great Bird Island has so much more past the shores. So cameras out and get ready to snap.
The highlands are a tale to two seasons. In spring and summer it belongs to the nesting birds that return in their numbers each year to raise their chicks on the safety of it cliffs. In the winter months it provides the perfect gallery for spying on whales as they make their way pass the Island.
The greatest contribution of this little paradise is its role in saving the non-venomous Antigua Racer Snake, twice declared extinct until found on the Great Bird Island. Since conservation began after their discovery in 1995, their numbers have grown from 50 to over 1200 individuals, while spreading to 3 neighbouring islands.
The Great Bird Island is the mini destination that blends eco adventure with relaxation and provides a vacation within a vacation. When visiting we ask you to enjoy the trails, reefs, beaches, benches, birds and snakes and when leaving take nothing but all the memories you can hold.
