The views are stunning, the roads are challenging but it's so worth it! The best tip we were given was never drive through a puddle as you do not know how deep it is!!

Fig is the Antiguan word for banana. Fig tree drive is actually a small section of rain forest very lush and green with an abundance of fruit. There is also the opportunity to zip wire here if you choose to.

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.
