Fig Tree Drive
Drive Through Antigua's Countryside

Fig Tree Drive through the Antigua countryside typically begins at the town of Liberta, north of Falmouth.

For avid hikers, it would be possible to walk this 20-mile circular drive but most people understandably drive through the mountains instead.

This is not a drive to be rushed. You'll want to stop at many places to get out, walk and view the lush forest or the small thatched fishing villages.

Don't expect to find real fig trees, though. Fig is the local name for bananas.

At the small Antigua Cultural Center between the villages of Swetes and Old Road, stop and ask directions for the trail to Wallings Dam. The woodlands walk there takes about 40 minutes.
