The finest sand in the area, 17 miles of it fringing the south and west of this little visited island. Blinding white, powder soft, and lapped by gin clear shallows.

Barbuda's turquoise waters spread across the plush, pink sand of the beach like icing on a cupcake. Home to sea turtles, dolphins, and frigate birds, the beach remains unaltered by outside forces.

This is not a place for those craving an intensely active holiday; time moves as slow as the still tide on this island. Sailing and boating are quite popular, especially when taking a trip to the island's Frigate Bird sanctuary, which is only accessible by boat.
