The following information is pre-covid so may not be current until things resume to ‘normal’ but for those of you who are determined and intrepid travellers, here are the latest covid protocols for visitors to Barbuda.
If you are booking your flights from overseas to Antigua and Barbuda as an independent traveller; there are several flights a week from the US, UK, and Canada that go to Antigua, and from there you will get the 90 minute ferry ride or a 15 minute flight to Barbuda – weather permitting.
Barbuda is 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 direct. Below you will find links to all the transport and accommodation options for Barbuda.
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 here. If you want to stay longer you will find most of the information you need below, and by contacting the taxi drivers, guest houses and hotels direct you will be making an important and welcome contribution to the local economy.
It’s difficult to find detailed or accurate information about Barbuda anywhere, which is one of the reasons we started this site fifteen years ago. Since then, Hurricane Irma has put us firmly on the map but we are much more than just an island that has experienced difficult times.
Barbuda’s charm is that it is undeveloped and is one of the few remaining almost completely natural islands left in the world, with world-class public beaches to match any other. 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 complicated relationship we have with Antigua regarding Barbuda land. On the whole Barbudans welcome development but we are very careful about it – we do not want to lose our freedom, our rich heritage of communal land and our unique culture.
