Fig Tree Drive Fig Tree Drive Bananas are called “figs” by the locals and Fig Tree Drive, which is located along Antigua’s southern coast, meanders through a variety of farm land, fishing villages and rain forest, offering visitors an opportunity to admire the “fig”, along with coconut and mango trees, dotting the picturesque landscape - such a pretty sight! Along the route, visitors can stop off at some of the many vendor stalls where freshly-picked, organic fruits are sold. There’s also the Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery to visit and for the adventurous, indulge yourself in a zip-line ride. www.visitantiguabarbuda.com Fruit at a fruit stall on Fig Tree Drive Photo Credit: Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority
