Making up the southern portion of Barbuda's 17-mile long Western coast, Low Bay Beach is perhaps the most famous beach on this secret island. With soft, pink sand extending for miles, and the calming blue waters of the Caribbean, there is not much more to ask for.

Situated near the heart of the island of Barbuda, Low Bay Beach is on the West coast of the island, You might want to drop by even if you are not staying particularly close by. There are advantages to visiting a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; beaches less-traveled like Low Bay Beach are perfect for getting away from it all.

How to Access The Beach
Low Bay makes up the west coast of Barbuda, so finding the beach will not be hard. Just realize that as you get closer to the coast and away from Codrington, the roads can get a little rough. The best bet would be to use a Jeep, local taxi driver, or even a boat service.

Amenities and Ambiance

Low Bay Beach is unrivaled in its beauty; offering a picturesque coastline that will calm even the most stressed visitor. If you are looking for a peaceful day, Low Bay Beach is a good choice - whether you decide to lay out and soak in the sun, walk along the soft sand for miles, or jump in the refreshing clear waters of the Caribbean for a swim or snorkel adventure.
