Naming of Devil’s Bridge in Willikies, Antigua

Tourist attractions are often given alluring names to generate curiosity and increase visitors. Devil’s Bridge may seem like such a marketing moniker. It is not. The name harkens back to when countless slaves committed suicide by jumping off this point into the pounding waves. Most believed death was better than plantation hardships. Some hoped the Atlantic Ocean would carry them back to Africa. Others claimed the devil hid here to collect their souls.
