There are some local shopping facilities and a fish market in nearby Parham, formerly Antigua’s primary port. North Sound Marina is the most modern marine facility in Antigua. Originally built as a private boatyard for a wealthy yacht owner, the dock, yard and ancillary buildings were constructed regardless of cost.

In 2011 the facility became available for public use and the boat storage shed and a large portion of the yard came under the control of North Sound Marine Services. Since that time, North Sound Marine Services have expanded the facilities and there are moves to bring other marine businesses onto the site including a chandlery.

Entry by sea is simple. There is a channel marked by on each side by two red balls just off Maiden Island and is easy to find but should only be used daylight conditions unless very familiar with the channel.

Fresh fish from the quay side fish market can be a bonus.  There is plentiful anchoring within the harbour which, although once Antigua’s main port, is now little used.
