Barbuda is one of those very few islands in the Caribbean that remains--and probably will remain for some time--so undeveloped as to seem deserted at times. With the exception of the guests of the island's small number of accommodations, the population seems largely to consist of the graceful Fregata magnificens, or frigate bird. Barbuda's seemingly endless white and pink sand beaches are left to the peaceful wanderings of those lucky enough to visit here. Activities on Barbuda include beachcombing, fishing and hunting and, at the island's resorts, golf, tennis, snorkeling, diving, or simply soaking up the sun and the calm. Points of interest include the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, the noteworthy pink and white sand beaches, and an abundance of shipwrecks and beautiful reefs. Barbuda can be reached easily from Antigua, either by air (a 20-minute flight, twice daily) or by boat (in three hours).
