About Barbuda

Barbuda was devastated by Hurricane Irma in September 2017, with an estimated 95% of man-made structures on the island damaged. The island of Antigua fared better. Please carefully check the most up to date information about the status of these islands before you book your holiday - the FCO Office website is a good place to start. But don’t be put off unnecessarily, your tourist dollars will help the islands rebuild.

Ringed by miles of beautiful, yet deserted beaches, Barbuda is Antigua's dozier cousin, a place where the wildlife population is great and the human population is small. The best places to stay on Barbuda are a handful of hotels and guesthouses, perfect for anyone wanting a proper Caribbean hideaway.

Barbuda has just one settlement, the peaceful village of Codrington, three miles north of the ferry landing and on the eastern shore of the lagoon, which is home to Barbuda's famous frigate colony.

Barbuda is a great place for a barefoot luxury island break. For those who want a little activity you'll find snorkelling or diving, or a spot of birdwatching (the frigate likes to call Barbuda home), fishing or even the simple pleasures of beachcombing!

what not to miss

  • For bird watchers and nature lovers the Frigate Bird Sanctuary is a must!
  • Visit the well known and beautiful 17-mile beach!

The island is all about getting away from it all and the best places to stay in Barbuda are perfect hideaways, ideal for a romantic break.

For peace and romance

  • North Beach is the perfect Caribbean hideaway, a collection of five, very secluded villas with beach-chic rooms, complete with muslin drapes and hammocks. There are miles of empty beach right on your doorstep. The restaurant is excellent, specialising in simple, locally sourced dishes. The only way to get here is by boat and all the villas have ocean views. Mmmm. Peace.
