For many people staying on Antigua, Barbuda in itself is an attraction.  Those staying on the island will have more time to explore, which means trips to the local museum, days spent on the beaches, and plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with the abundance of nature that is available here. 


You will discover an abundance of beaches to visit on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the beach names for detailed information about that particular location.

If you enjoy snorkeling, a location where that's an option is Palm Beach. Flat and expansive, this beach has only a few buildings and then nothing but sand and sea for miles. To walk down this beach is to experience a taste of untouched paradise.

Another good choice for snorkeling fans is Pink Sand Beach. Pink Sand Beach is the premier beach on the island of Barbuda due to its unique color. Still, due to the island's low population, the beach is very often deserted.

Goat Point: Almost too small to be called a cape, Goat Point has a very long stretch of white sugar sand along the coast, with interesting foliage and paths inland. It's far from where most of the development is on the island and you're sure to attune yourself to the natural beauty of the Caribbean here.

These examples are merely a few of what's available. Visit this article if you'd like some more specifics.


If you enjoy expanding your knowledge of other cultures and places, you should consider visiting a museum during your vacation.

Barbuda Museum is a museum towards the middle of Barbuda. The artifacts on display have been discovered by visitors, locals, and students on the island over the years. There is also a collection of photographs that paint a vivid picture of life on the island.

The chart directly below enables you to get a few details regarding a museum on the island.
