PILLARS OF HERCULES
A quarter mile stretch of golden sand with calm waters and good a snorkelling reef 75ft offshore. Galleon Beach is situated at Freeman's Bay in English Harbour on the southern tip of Antigua in the heart of the National Park. The surrounding area is a beautiful blend of white sandy beaches, rolling hills, tropical vegetation, marine life, nautical atmosphere, and historical sites.
A short hike to the left of the bay around the point will take you to the Pillars of Hercules. The Pillars stand at the end of Charlotte Point guarding the entrance to Freeman's Bay and English Harbour. These are natural geological rock formations carved by wind, rain and the sea. Unfortunately they can only really be appreciated when viewed from the sea.
If you love to walk, there are two trails accessed from the road leading into the Galleon Beach Resort - The Jones Valley Trail and the Lookout Trail. Taking either trail will take you up to points along the road to Shirley Heights lookout, and for an alternative walk down, the Carpetners Rock Trail takes you down the other side of the road and out over the ocean with stunning views of the coast line.
