Welcome to Barbuda on the Paradise Islands website. Barbuda is part of Antigua and it is a flat coral island with an area of approximately 68 square miles. The island of Barbuda lies about 30 miles due north of Antigua. The first attempts to settle Barbuda by the British and French were failures. In 1666 the British established a colony that was strong enough to survive nature and the local Caribs.

Things To Do

Barbuda is very relaxed and gives the impression of being one of the most Caribbean Islands. The main activities are bird watching, beachcombing (on the north eastern Atlantic coast) and fishing. One of the main reasons to visit Barbuda is to see the Frigate Bird Sanctuary.

Barbuda also has some amazing pink and white sandy deserted beaches, many shipwrecks around the island and beautiful reefs.

Barbuda's Frigate Bird Sanctuary is located in the north western lagoon area and is only accessible by boat. The Barbuda sanctuary features 170 species of birds and is the home of over 5,000 frigate birds.
