Barbuda

Barbuda has been left in its pristine natural state, renowned for its long empty beaches where it is still possible to leave footprints in virgin sand. The breathtaking pink sand beaches of the south-western shore stretch are lapped by the gentle Caribbean waters, while those on the island's eastern shore are somewhat rougher. Most of the island is surrounded by a coral barrier reef rich in colourful marine life and excellent for snorkelling. Nature lovers will find an abundance of wildlife on the island, particularly in the Codrington Lagoon National Park, home to the world's largest colony of frigate birds.
