Cruise Diva Goes Ashore in the Caribbean
Sights to see & things to do

Barbuda

Tiny and nearly deserted, Barbuda has been historically and geographically tied to more prosperous Antigua, its neighbor twenty-seven miles to the south. For much of the eighteenth century, land on Barbuda was used to produce food and to supply additional slave labor for Antigua’s sugar plantations.

Diversions

Only the smallest ships call at Barbuda. It’s a good place for experiencing utter tranquility and activities are appropriately laid back. The main point of interest is the Frigate Bird Sanctuary and there's excellent bird watching at Codrington Lagoon, home to a large colony of frigate birds. Otherwise, think of beachcombing on the northeastern Atlantic coast, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, or simply soaking in the sun.

Shopping

Although you might find something to buy at one of the resorts, don’t look for typical Caribbean shops and boutiques.

Beaches

Barbuda’s pink and white sand beaches are truly breathtaking and an abundance of shipwrecks and beautiful reefs make for interesting snorkeling and diving. For absolute seclusion, try the island's western coast where the snorkeling is excellent and there’s nothing to do but relax.
