17 mile Beach and Anchorage

Anchorages

There are a ton of anchorages on the East side of the island and all are generally receptive to drafts of 7ft and under. The west side is beautiful but given the prevailing winds, massive unexplored reefs and swell so stay to the East. The holding in Barbuda is second to none my anchor doesn't usually burry more then half way but here it was entirely submerged in pink sand.

Activities

The Bird sancuary


Shirley Height for a fabulous overlook of the bay


Fort James Historic site


Admiral’s House Museum


and of course boat tours, boat rentals, snorkeling, diving, tanning and boat charters. Most of the time I would expect people to just chill out, relax on the beautiful white sand beaches and swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters that surround the entire island.

Best Beaches

17 Mile beach.

When I'm their traveling by boat: which is really the only way to do it, I drift a mile a day up the coast and set anchor. A new mile wide stretch awaits your for more then 2 weeks.


Given that their is a quick drop off to 6-7 feet of water you can realisticly get a 7 ft draft sailboat with in 150 ft of shore.

Customs

Jolly Harbour is the easiest and cheapest-just remember to park your boat at the customs dock at the back of the harbor; where the yellow flag is, before doing anything.


Falmouth Harbor is another good spot but remember it is a national park and regardless of how long you plan to stay their you will be charged according to the entire length of your stay.


It is possible to clear out of Barbuda but the customs hours are spotty at best and you must take a water taxi across the lagoon as it is illegal to drag your dinghy over the dunes.


I also found the lagoon to be considerably ruffer seas then the eastern ocean side. This is something i have never seen before but welcomed.

Where Is Barbuda

Location-Barbuda is part of the Lesser Antilles. It lies 1,140 nautical miles east south east of Miami Florida and 35 miles North of Antigua.It is off the beaten track for many cruisers as their are no services dirrectly accessable from the anchorages

Beaches

I don't know how to explain the beauty of these beaches. Or should I just say Beach. Barbuda has one 17 mile stretch of the most perfect and pristine beach I have ever seen. Not to mention the fact that along the waterline its pure pink. As you head upshore it turns into powder white sand.

I've been to 100's of beaches in the Caribbean during my travels and nothing compares to Barbuda. Its perfection!
