Definitely one of the most recognizable landmarks of the island, and surely a must - not only because of its dark, yet educating, past but also a beautiful place to observe "blow holes" TIP: a lot of people are too scared to drive all the way to the shore and tend to park early, it's a looooong walk from there...

We were taken as part of a jeep safari...Natures beauty as the huge waves crash under the rock arch...However tempered by the fact of the number of slaves who "jumped" here trying to swim home Africa..Very moving...

Staying at the Verandah Resort and Spa the Devil's Bridge is just a short walk and so we have visited every day so far. Crossing the small spit of land onto the headland we have been treated to fine displays of spray as the waves crash into the shore. Walking to the edge where the bridge itself is you can... More

We stayed nearby and walked to the bridge from our resort, once there the views were amazing, nestled over the ocean and ruggedly beautiful. I would suggest a taxi or a guide as signage is very limited.

On our last full day at Antigua, my wife and I visited Devil's Bridge. As Black Americans, this attraction held special significance to us. Antigua, like many West Indian islands, was shaped by slavery. As a former British colony owning its existence to cane sugar production, slavery was especially brutal here. Slaves, particularly women, when ill, would commit suicide by... More

so this is touted as a must see place. There is nothing there to see except the open Atlantic waters and how they crash upon the rocks. The actual Devils Bridge is just a rock that the ocean carved a whole through it. A couple local vendors attempting to sell some local items, but no snacks drinks or restrooms. The... More

We stayed at the Verandah so this was a short walk from our hotel. We visited 3 times! Beware - you will get wet. It just reminds you of the power of the ocean

This is highly recommended, and yes, worth a visit but only if you are passing. The waves crashing through under the arch of the bridge was dramatic, but after five, ten minutes there is nothing much to stay for. Visit if you are local to this area, if not, wouldn't put yourself out to get there!
