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. If you want an escape from reality, a place where you can forget what hustle and bustle mean, this is it.

Positioned on the northern side of Goat Island, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. Those searching for a somewhat calm, but somewhat social beach in Antigua may find that Goat Point is just the right spot. It's slightly off the beaten path, but it's not dead and empty either.

Amenities and Ambiance

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.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

If you tend to choose shores which offer those who visit a tranquil enclave, then a good choice for you is Goat Point; it is tucked away in a more rural sector of Goat Island.
