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.

You'll discover a large number of beaches to enjoy on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, if some of the people in your group are so inclined. You can click on the name of the beach for a detailed guide to that section of the coast.

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.

A second location to consider is Coco Point. This beach is unique in that is surrounded by ocean on both sides, as it juts out from the island of Barbuda. The sand is magically soft and the area is full of greenery and palm trees.

Palmetto Point: Famous for it's pink sand and popular with boaters, Palmetto Point is the southernmost tip of Barbuda.
