The English Harbour area is well known as the yachting capital of the Caribbean. In addition to the area’s natural, namesake harbour, Falmouth Harbour is the area’s manmade harbour with two marinas – and home to South Point. Built to accommodate the largest mega yachts, these marinas offer a safe haven for many of the world’s most prestigious vessels during the winter months.Read more
South Point’s accommodations are comprised of 23 condo-style waterfront suites that overlook the Caribbean Sea and Falmouth Harbour marina. Housed in five individual 2- and 3-storey buildings along the coast, each of the 23 suites offers immediate access to the pool, jetty, and small private beach. Resort facilities are reserved for guests only, creating a peaceful, secluded oasis in the midst of Antigua’s most popular destination – outside of the capital, St. John’s – English Harbour.
There are just two room categories at South Point: the 1-Bedroom Deluxe Suite and the 2-Bedroom Penthouse Suite. The 20 Deluxe Suites occupy the ground floor and first floor of each building, while the 3 Penthouse Suites span the top floors of the 3 central buildings. The ground floor suites are raised slightly off the main walkway, with just 5 steps leading up to private patios. The first floor (second level) suites are accessed by external staircases and feature spacious covered balconies, while the rooftop-style Penthouse balconies afford added privacy and expansive views of the surrounding area.
From December to early May, English Harbour is home to a steady flow of people from around the world with events to match. Sailors will find shops and facilities to meet your maintenance needs, including marine engineering, chandlery, refueling, electronics, rigging, dive shop and stores & supplies. At night crew and guests enjoy local dining with a Caribbean flare for a wide range of tastes and cuisines. The Harbour area has no shortage of restaurants to enjoy – with supporting bars and nightlife to complement a night of dining.
Those with a passion for yachting or sailing should plan to visit in season for the chance to view the world’s best at any one of the island’s most events, including Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in April and the famous Antigua Sailing Week between April and May .
South Point has one of the best restaurants on the island for food and the view! Inspired by Asian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, South Point’s restaurant offers an eclectic mix of authentic flavours with one thing in common: fresh, high quality ingredients. The menu includes simple, yet skilfully prepared dishes that allow diners to indulge and savour according to taste. In keeping with its cosmopolitan character, South Point’s restaurant is the perfect combination of international taste and local flavour; farm to table ingredients and locally caught seafood are daily menu staples. The addictive cocktail menu changes seasonally to feature local flavours like sorrel and soursop alongside a carefully curated international wine list.
Though the restaurant’s stylish setting suggests fine-dining and dress codes, South Point is the definition of island chic – understated and easy-going. Both the lounge and restaurant welcome non-hotel guests to enjoy the casual, cafe-style vibes. As a testament to this, the restaurant deck, which is suspended over water, is easily accessible by water and equipped for tying up dinghies and paddle boards.
