Gets a lot of publicity and you drive along it when you approach Falmouth Harbour from the west. That's about it!

Nice drive, wouldn't really go out of my way to come here. There is zip lining and an art galley and lots of locals selling fruit. Not many views other than rain forest.

We have visited Antigua four times and on each occasion have stopped by this lovely little gallery and bought paintings to take home to remind us of beautiful Antigua. The Fig Tree Gallery is not in the business of selling standard-issue tourist art -- lithographs and note cards of familiar, over-exposed scenes. Instead, it sells work by local artists and... More

This road can be a little on the wild side, especially at night. The pot holes can jump right out at you :) Cool drive through the day, just keep an eye out for pot holes.

My wife and I partook of a half day Pelican Safari land tour, and the trip from Galley Bay along the western coast, down to Nelsons Dockyard, entailed travelling through this gorgeous stretch of road. Glad we were in comfortable SUV and not the ones driving, the road conditions leave very much to be desired...but we appreciated seeing the pineapples,... More

I didn't really know what to expect, though everywhere I research Antigua this "place" was mentioned - it's hard to call it a place as it's simply a road through a rain forest - though with some nice views here and there, we managed to see a baby pineapple and a "chocolate tree" :) so that was a highlight right...

This drive along this road through the rain forest is awesome, the road is a little bumpy and are all the roads in Antigua, however they are all do-able, but this one is a must!!!!

Fig means banana in Antigua and the road is surrounded by Banana plantations, as with all roads on the island its not in great shape so drive slowly but the views are awesome, as you follow the coast road towards Jolly Beach. You have sea and beaches on one side and rain forest on the other side of the road.... More

Fig Tree Drive. Firstly just remember your in Antigua and the roads can be up and down and broken up in places, so do take care we've seen many an accident. As you drive from THE PINK CHURCH towards Jolly Beach. This stretch of road is just wonderful, the small villages, the lush green trees and bushes and not forgetting... More
