We anchored here good holding and great views. The beach bar to the north was no welcoming guests as it is more of an excluded resort for foreigners.

Perfectly private! we loved having the entire bay to ourselves pretty much both times we sailed up to Barbuda from Antigua! You can walk for hours along completely unspoiled flour like sand beaches, and not see another person or be at all disturbed. So private,...More

Just a day trip from Antigua . Crystal clear water you could see the fish without using a snorkel or mask! Gorgeous long sand beaches and even the famous pink sand to see as well. Perfect for a quiet , romantic holiday .

White sand beaches and clear blue water for as far as the eye can see. When I was there, I didn't see another living soul. It was wonderful.
