There’s nothing better than feeling the soft, cool sand between your toes and hearing the lap of the Caribbean Sea when you need some well deserved R&R. That’s why Barbuda is such a perfect cruising destination. On the west coast, you have Low Bay which is literally 11 miles of unbroken white/pink sand. From time to time the beach looks an amazing pink; this is because it is made up from the tiniest of pink shells.
So how do you reach this sailor’s paradise? From the island of Antigua, Barbuda is around a four and a half hour sail – perfect for those charterers who do not want a full day of sailing but enjoy island-hopping. Most of our guests will sail from Jolly Harbour up to either Deep Bay (where you can jump in and explore the wreck of the Andes) or even the more lively Dickenson Bay where you have such great restaurants as Coconut Grove and Pepperz n Lime. From these two overnight anchorages, you then lift your anchor early the next morning and sail up to Barbuda.
Once in Barbuda, you can visit the Frigate Bird Sanctuary in the Lagoon – a guided boat tour showing you these amazing birds with their bright red colouring on display…
Or enjoy some local lobster at Uncle Roddy’s Lobster Shack (another overnight anchorage so do allow two nights in Barbuda to fully appreciate all it has to offer)…
Whichever way you decide to explore Barbuda; we know that you won’t be disappointed. Paradise is waiting for you.
