Just a day trip from Antigua . Crystal clear water you could see the fish without using a snorkel or mask! Gorgeous long sand beaches and even the famous pink sand to see as well. Perfect for a quiet , romantic holiday .

The name of the company who provides the ride is Excellence (highly recommend). That was a fun ride! Only 90 min and you on an endless... More

You get to the beach, look to the right and to the left and cannot believe your eyes. The splendor of nature. Then you walk towards the water and just enter paradise. You feel the warmth, subtle, inviting nature of the water as it strokes your body. There's nothing better I have ever experienced. The other benefit, you may have... More

White sand beaches and clear blue water for as far as the eye can see. When I was there, I didn't see another living soul. It was wonderful.

Went to this beach in Barbuda by helicopter. What a way to arrive. The pilot lands on the beach! The whole beach is yours not another living sole in any direction. Beautiful pink sand made from shells. This really is heaven on earth. Had lunch in a little shack on the beach which was fantastic. Rum punch made with Ting... More

I flew into Barbuda by helicopter and flew over the length of the beach on the way in to Codrington and was stunned at the scenery, it is worth viewing from the air.

Just stunning. Catamaran was an experience with lots of salt water but the beach was out of this world and the best I have ever visited, pink!

One of the most beautiful beaches I have witnessed but then again Barbuda has these in spades. However, beware of the scammer pseudo-Rasta Solomon who is the so called water taxi. Use another boat person if at all possible. If you pay him in advance your return trip may be in jeopardy! Do not pay until you are back in... More

We did not walk along the 17 Miles of this side of BARBUDA Island, but enjoyed only some Southern part of it. amazing colour of the sea, between turquoise blue and cristal clear, where you can't stop diving in ! You can walk for hours (make sure you've got some bottled water or some drinks ) without being bothered, since... More

The sand here is like powdered sugar. You can walk for miles and hardly see anyone else. Incredible sunsets.
