Perfectly private! we loved having the entire bay to ourselves pretty much both times we sailed up to Barbuda from Antigua! You can walk for hours along completely unspoiled flour like sand beaches, and not see another person or be at all disturbed. So private, and perfect! A must see for any beach lover!!

I have been to 7 Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, CI but this beautiful sandy beach stretch is something else! What makes it really unique is the fact that just a 1m walk you can be on the "other side" of the beach facing the "lagoon" alike of the Barbuda with it's much darker/grimmer looking like waters where the boats...

This is one of the most amazing beaches in the Caribbean. 17 miles of the softest sand you can ever walked on. If you are visiting by yacht...anchor at Cocoa point and just walk for miles and miles (note it is a beach landing), and time it with sunset and you will usually get a spectacular one. If you are...

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 .

Do you want to see paradise? Then you should go and see this place! It's on Barbuda - little sister island of Antigua. We took a catamaran ride to get there from Sandals resort. 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!
