staying in antigua first
We often have to stay at least one night in Antigua before we can get to or from Barbuda on the busy local flight or the ferry, so we recommend that you plan for this and spend a more relaxing time there. The latest advisory for Covid is here but in addition to this, please note:
“All guests travelling to Antigua are required to stay at a certified accommodation property. If on arrival a guest cannot provide proof of stay at a certified property, guest will be required to make alternate arrangements at an approved property. If not, guest will be required to quarantine at a government facility. You will find a comprehensive listing of certified accommodations here. All certified accommodations listed have undergone inspection by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Tourism.”
guest houses and hotels
There are many guest houses in Antigua listed on Airbnb and on booking.com and we have stayed at several of them. Airbnb has more listings than any other ‘homestay’ sites but does not list the accommodation separately for Antigua and for Barbuda, so although it ‘suggests’ homes on Barbuda, they are probably not on Barbuda at all. So if you are looking for Barbuda Airbnb’s make sure you double check which island it is actually on.
come to barbuda on a day tour
Antigua +39 Tours are run by Italians Melania and Roberto who come to Barbuda on a regular basis to do their Italian language guided tours.They are very familiar with the best places to see on Barbuda, and bring delicious picnics with them. This a great day tour to do while you are on holiday in Antigua, especially if you are from Italia!
