Took the Barbuda Excellence trip and travelled the length of this beach prior to stopping for lunch and a few swims. The sea, sand and sun typified Caribbean paradise. We saw colours that even Dulux haven't thought of yet!! Magnificent natural wonder.

We have been travelling the Caribbean’s for the past 3 months from the Grenadines up to here. We have been in other parts of the world like South-East Asia, Saint-Tropez, Maldives, Seychelles and even Bora-Bora. Nothing compares to this. The closest we know is the 200km beach in "Les Landes" on the French Atlantic coast, but that one is crowded... More

I took a full day cruise to this 17-mile beach in September 2013 and was blown away. Crystal clear water and pink sand beaches for as far as the eye can see. This is truly one of the last untouched places in the world you have to see. I highly recommend!

The most perfect beach. Soft white sand, clear blue waters, beautiful surroundings - what more could you want? The water is crystal clear and extremely clean.

I don't say this lightly. I have traveled to 19 countries to date. This is, without a doubt, the most beautiful beach in the world. Ultra soft, pink sand with baby blue water. You can walk for hours and not see another soul. There will hopefully never be a day in the world where a place like this doesn't exist,... More

If you walk it, bring hat, water, sunscreen, and don't go alone, there is NOTHING out there.

I've seen photos of beautiful beaches. Often, I think they used various filters and photo editing to make them look so perfect. When I stepped onto this wild and natural beach on Barbuda, I was stunned at the beauty and perfection of it. The sand is the finest sugar and the water is the most amazing shade of blue-green I've... More
