Why go?

North Beach Barbuda offers the perfect opportunity to relax and soak up some winter sun. Located in the Caribbean, North Beach Barbuda is five miles from the closest town giving the family a chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of life and reconnect with each other in this rustic paradise.

There are five private cottages of varying sizes to choose from, each with an ocean view. Rates start from £376 per night including all meals, drinks and boat transfers from Codrington Village to North Beach.

Activities

This holiday is all about going back to the basics: take a day to go snorkelling or kayaking in the beautiful Caribbean waters, relax in the sun with a book while the kids build sandcastles by the water, learn how to make banana pancakes from Barbudan owner, Reuben James, or take a family excursion and visit the nearby animal sanctuary. Meals are included in the cost and every evening guests gather together to enjoy a Caribbean-style meal or BBQ on the beach hosted by Reuben.
