Encompassing the Northwest coast of Barbuda, the Frigate Bird Sanctuary is a protected nesting colony of large Frigate Birds, while also preserving the natural environment and ecosystem of Barbuda.

Visitors will be able to explore the mangrove coast and get closer to the Frigate Birds than anywhere else. Other activities are limited, the mangrove vegetation make hiking difficult, so kayak or other boat is the preferred mode of transportation.


Positioned on the island of Barbuda, 2.7 miles south-southwest of Goat Island, Frigate Bird Sanctuary always welcomes tourists rooming on this part of the island. Even if you are not staying very close, you are free to stop by for some fun in the sun. Codrington is to the southeast.

The only sensible way of reaching Frigate Bird Sanctuary is via boat.
