Antigua Hawksbill Turtle Postcard. Forgot to get one in Antigua? No worries, here you can get one and more!
Tucked away on the north western coast of Antigua, Hawksbill Bay has one of the best beaches located in quiet and picturesque area.
Its namesake “Hawksbill” is actually a rock, a unique rock formation out in the water with a hooked shape. And yes, here one can actually see the Antigua Hawksbill Turtle!
This is the common sea turtle of Antigua, but they are an endangered species. Hawksbills have a narrow pointed beak and the shell is jagged towards the rear…
The early Indians of Antigua perceived the Hawksbill as “a gift from the Gods”. The turtle motif is often found on their pottery as incised designs or as sculptured handles.
