Beaches on Barbuda

Protected on all sides by barrier reefs, the smooth coast of Barbuda is miles upon miles of untouched deserted beaches where you can easily walk for miles without running into another beach-goer.  This is especially true between Spanish Point and Palmetto Point, which is eight miles of pink sand beaches and calm waters.  Along the Atlantic coast is where you'll find the waters that are slightly more rough and favored by surfers.

Goat Point: Goat Point is a little cape near the Northern tip of Barbuda. It is beautiful and isolated, with blindingly white sand and flawless turquoise waters.

Another place to consider is Coco Point. Coco Point Lodge Resort claims a lot of the land on this beach but you can visit the beach even if you're not a guest of the Lodge. The beach is accessible by road, just stay West of the air strip that rests above the beach.
