If you really want a pink sand beach, check out Barbuda Belle. Have a nice lunch at the hotel (prices a reasonable for lunch) and enjoy a real pink sand beach to yourself and a completely flat water!

I visited Barbuda for just one day with ferry from Antigua. Barbuda is still under construction after a hurricane Irma. I spent one hour on the Pink Sand Beach because it’s close to the ferry terminal, so I walked there along the beach. The sand...More

I have never seen a beach so empty in the entire Caribbean. Mostly because of the secluded nature of this island is it less visited. The beach is beautiful and long as hell so the chances of running into someone here is low. The island...More

if you do love empty caribbean beaches with turquise waters this is your place. On top small shells make this beach pink. not every day the pink hue is the same. it depends whether the sea is depositing or teaching away the shells

Beautiful day for a walk on the pink beach, with John's a perfect stop for that cold beverage to complete the picture. Quiet and very few people to spoil the experience.

The beach was not overly pink but you could definitely see the broken pink shells/sand so I'm sure it's a matter of timing for deeper color or not. We did eat at John's as we were doing a tour with him and had lobster on...More

It's a quiet beach with a bar. And you can find a horse riding spot there. I payed 20$ for 30 min per person with my wife. Was fun.

Yes the beaches on Barbuda really are pink. And there are virtually no hotels or tourists there. There were a couple of swanky resorts but they were all closed when I was there, I don't know why. I liked having the place to myself with...More

Plenty of shoreline to find your own private spot. The pink is easier to see morning or evening. Very scenic!

First of all, getting to Barbuda was a horrible experience. The ferry ride was awful, it felt like a roller coaster ride for an hour and a half, my poor friend got so sick and threw up multiple times. PINK beach is not that pink,...More
