The website in 2018
We are gradually updating the website since we experienced devastating Hurricane Irma. Irma was the most deadly hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, making first landfall on Barbuda with winds recorded at 298km/h, but leaving Antigua almost unscathed. Barbudans were evacuated to Antigua adding to the trauma of leaving their damaged homes and loose animals to the army; many of which were lost or killed. Since then the international response has been overwhelming and wonderful (with special thanks to all of you) as repairs are made to homes and we start to try to regain our way of life. Our facebook page has recorded all of this and is updated almost every day but we are still (nearly a year later) mainly without electricity and now into the next hurricane season. If you trying to contact us be advised that the internet is slow and people have limited phone signal.
Visitors to Barbuda are ALWAYS made very welcome and are coming back now in larger numbers, and we have a great regular ferry service (weather permitting) and almost daily flights. The Antigua government announced an on/off brand new ferry service. They also re-announced Barbuda Airways but this has been promoted several times before so we await it's actual arrival. The official Antigua and Barbuda Tourism department is very keen on day tours, but getting here and back in one day is our perennial problem. So we suggest you stay as long as possible in Barbuda and enjoy the beaches and our wonderful community over two or three days - or even longer - you will be glad you did.
