2nd best beach

This island is magical everything about it is unspoilt. This beach is not as idyllic as the beach south of the island but comes very close. Well worth a visit.

What a beautiful place. Virtually unspoilt. We visited on a boat trip from Antigua, the boat journey was pretty rough; however arriving at Barbuda and spending some time on this amazing beach was worth it! We didn't go in search of the Frigate birds (sorry birds), preferring to remain on the beach as it was so nice; white sand and... More

This is certainly the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. We cycled there from Barbuda Cottages until Palmetto Point and took a long walk at the beach. It looked just like the most beautiful postcard you can imagine and there was absolutely nobody anywhere! The waves were too high to swim, but the view itself is a breathtaking experience: the...

It was more beautiful and quieter than any place I have ever been.we walked for miles and miles and never saw another person. The water is gorgeous.

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!

We went past this on our trip to Barbuda, we sailed its length and stopped off. This is the most beautiful beach in the world. Fantastic

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
