Home | visiting us

If you are booking your flights to Antigua and Barbuda there are several flights a week from the US, UK, and Canada that come to Antigua, and from there you will be able to get the 90 minute ferry ride – weather permitting – or a 15 minute flight to Barbuda. Scroll down the page for links to transport to and from Barbuda, car or bike hire on Barbuda, a selection of our range of accommodation, our food and tours. Barbuda is sometimes offered as a day tour from Antigua and many people on holiday in Antigua do visit us for the day – ask at your hotel or contact one of our local taxi and tour operators listed below for details of their tours. However we think you will have an even better experience if you stay here for at least two or three nights, because the day-return plane and ferries do not allow much time to explore everything there is to offer here. If you want to stay longer you will find most of the information you need about accommodation below, and by contacting the taxi drivers, guest houses and hotels direct you will benefit from their local knowledge of other places that are not on the website. Since the arrival of Barbuda Ocean Club workers looking for village accommodation we have fewer local guest houses and prices have gone up, but many Barbudans have rooms available.

It’s always been difficult to find detailed or accurate information about Barbuda which is one of the reasons we started this site twenty years ago. The Antiguan government has always wanted to control the economy of Barbuda and how it was perceived by others and we wanted to change that and reflect our community, not just the ‘pink sand beach’. Since then, Hurricane Irma has put us firmly on the map but we are also much more than just an island that has experienced difficult times. Barbuda’s charm is that it has fought for centuries to remain self-determining and as a result is one of the few remaining natural Caribbean island communities left in the world, with world-class PUBLIC beaches used mainly by Barbudan fishers and for camping out. As a result it’s a very special destination. To understand more about us you can read the history of the island and explore the difficult relationship we have had with the government of Antigua regarding Barbuda’s traditional communal use of land, and our continuing battle to stop over-development of our beach land and their exploitation of our other natural resources. Barbudans have always welcomed sustainable development and our visitors keep telling us they are coming here because it isn’t like St Barts! In the past the world-class Coco Point, K Club and Palmetto hotels were always full, and a nineteen-seater plane serviced day tours, and we were a busy and prosperous island community. So we are careful – we do not want to lose our communal land with it’s rich heritage and unique culture to become a playground for the super-rich.
