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. The shallow water around the tip of this small peninsula allows for great snorkeling. Be sure to stick around the the magnificent sunsets over the water.

Located on the southern side of the island of Barbuda, You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Antigua's beaches are hardly known for being secluded, but Coco Point is less exposed than the others, making it just the right spot for vacationers who don't want to wander too far away, but would rather avoid the most hectic parts of town.

Amenities and Ambiance

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.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. Those who love lounging in the sun will be excited to discover that guests can take advantage of lounge chairs at this destination. The water in the area is clear enough for snorkeling, so bring your gear if you're wanting to check out the underwater sites.

A lesser known beach, Coco Point as well as its available amenities and services will most likely be a hit for guests wishing to be free from the busy beaches and crowded shores since it happens to be hiding within a peaceful part of Barbuda. With this in mind, struggling to obtain an unclaimed amenity or service at the beach is not a thing you will have to do regularly, in spite of what time it is.
