Hiking at Deep Bay, Antigua, just the girls
29 April 2017
The start of our hike up to Fort Barrington was drop off at the beach in Deep bay where we all were anchored. FORT BARRINGTON, (1779- c. 1850). In 1779 the southern entrance to St. John’s Harbour was strongly fortified by Admiral Barrington, who had defeated the French off St. Lucia in 1778. The fort is a giant semi-circular gun emplacement dominating the approaches to St. John's Harbour. It is placed upon a hill on the harbour’s southern side. The interior is interesting to explore, for found therein, are dungeon-like rooms and a powder magazine. The view from the top is astounding. It took less then 30 minutes to reach the top. We walked to the point then back down and continued over the bridge around the salt pond. Oops had to turn around at the Royal Antigua resort, they would not let us walk through to the beach because of construction.
