This tiny, secluded place consists of four cottages and a pavilion miles from the nearest house and accessible only by boat. Guests may go a week without seeing another person besides the owner or helper (both Barbudan). Expensive but memorable.
The most American accommodation on the island with single rooms, suites and two to four bedroom cottages. This all-inclusive resort is absolutely amazing.
The first self contained 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom solar powered beach house, located only steps from the ocean on the South West coast of Barbuda.
The newest resort on Barbuda, it opened in April 2008. Luxurious facility on the narrow strip of beach between the lagoon and the ocean.
Beach-style restaurant/bar with fresh seafood. Local fish, local owners, everything but the beach.
Seafood Grill and Bar... and more.... Karaoke, DJs, healthy seafood, not so healthy cocktails!
Barbuda is part of the nation of Antigua and Barbuda, being joined with Antigua when the islands were granted independence, but the islands have little in common. Internal affairs are largely governed by the elected Barbudan Council. Barbuda has a population of only 1500 or so, and few tourist facilities in spite of its miles of beautiful beaches. Nearly all the small stores, restaurants and guest houses are locally owned--what you spend here stays here. The economy is largely dependent on sand mining (the sand is exported to Antigua for construction), and tourism. The Barbudan Council has started a truck farm on the site of the old plantation to provide employment and fresh produce. The official currency is the EC dollar, but US dollars are used for rooms, tours and car rentals. Most of the residents are descended from slaves owned by the Codrington family, who raised food here for the slaves in the sugarcane fields of Antigua. When slavery was abolished, the land was given to the Barbudans, and continues to be held in common. No one can own land, but Barbudans may apply for sites upon which to build homes. Others, such as resorts, may lease land.
