The small township of Falmouth lies close to its northern shore, and English Harbour is located close to its eastern shore. Its geographic coordinates are 17°1′0″N 61°46′0″W / 17.01667°N 61.76667°W / 17.01667; -61.76667.[1]

The harbour lies close to the eastern end of the Shekerley Mountains, a range of hills skirting Antigua's south coast. Monk's Hill, the easternmost peak in the range, lies immediately to the north of the harbour.
