All at Sea, a popular blog dedicated to the marine industry has named Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua & Barbuda to its Ten Top Caribbean Movie Destinations near the water.
Nelson’s Dockyard was number eight on the list for its use in the popular local film The Skin by HAMAFilms Antigua.
Mitzi Allen Managing Director and Executive Producer at HAMAFilms, noted that The Skin was the only homegrown film on the list which also features locations in Jamaica, St. Lucia, Dominica and Curacao among others.
“All of the other films mentioned in the list are Hollywood films, and so it feels really good to be numbered among them,” Allen said.
The Skin was the fourth film released by the Antiguan-based production company in 2011. Nelson’s Dockyard was the backdrop for several scenes including a police investigation.
Filmmaker Howard Allen added “Nelson’s Dockyard is an example of some of the amazing locations we have in Antigua & Barbuda and we were glad we were given the opportunity to include it in our production.”
The blog noted: “There’s no need to be a movie star to visit the dockyard. This largest of Antigua’s National Parks is open daily. The Dockyard also serves as the site of several nautical happenings throughout the year such as Antigua Sailing Week, the Antigua & Barbuda Sports Fishing Tournament, and New Year’s Day celebration around the capstan.”
