Places we love: Devil's Bridge, Antigua

One of the more popular is Devil's Bridge, a limsetone arch carved by natural erosion from the Atlantic Ocean. 

Devil's Bridge is located on the northeastern side of Antigua near Indian Town Point. 

Apart from being a natural geological formation, the "bridge" has historic significance according to the book "To Shoot Hard Labour" recorded by Papa Smith in which he said that many slaves from neighbouring plantations committed suicide by throwing themselves off the bridge into the sea. 

Due to the mass suicides there, it was said the devil got into them giving the site its name today.
