Barbuda - one of the world’s great undiscovered islands.
The island of Barbuda is, effectively, one large beach and the main reason to visit Barbuda is to take advantage of mile upon mile of deserted coral sand beaches. Princess Diana was known to get away to the island’s once prestigious K-Club. Unlike most of the Leeward Islands, Barbuda is not of volcanic origin. The island is limestone and was, originally, a coral reef which has been raised above the sea. In the south the Highlands slope down to meet the plain and on the eastern, windward side, the Atlantic Ocean has eroded the coast into rocky headlands although much of the rest of the coastline is characterised by the renowned sandy beaches.
Barbuda’s beach sand is often described as pink and, stepping ashore from your yacht, you might be disappointed to see white sand but turn around and look into the surf. As the sea washes away, the colour of the sand turns to pink. In the space of a few feet you have the azure blue sea, pink surf and the white sand beach. The perfect, relaxing holiday cocktail.
