Description

Barbuda is the Caribbean’s best kept secret. Life is slower here and more relaxed. The locals are fiercely proud of their culture but equally willing to share it. And the island has been blessed with a unique natural beauty.

The island is rightly famous for its extraordinary beaches. One is named after a Princess. Another is a beguiling shade of pink.

But scratch the surface and you’ll find a certifiable wonder of nature, mysterious caves, a unique cuisine and friendly locals happy to introduce you to their culture … and their pace of life.

In this episode, local boatman Pat Richardson takes Peter deep into Barbuda’s extraordinary Frigate Bird Sanctuary. It’s one of nature’s greatest spectacles and  Peter gets to witness it at the height of the cacophonous mating season.

Jackie Beazer from Wa’Omoni Bestaurant makes Peter a delicious conch burger, explains why her eatery is a Barbudan institution and offers advice on the best way to meet the locals.

Asher Frank explains how Barbuda’s unique communal land laws have protected the island from the overdevelopment. And why her eco-friendly guesthouse and glamping site is the perfect way to get away from it all.

Matthew John reveals why Hillview Bar & Grill, his rustic bar out on Two Foot Bay, is a great place to chill, meet people and tuck into a barbequed lobster, fresh off the grill.

Finally, Claudette Thomas from Barbuda Belle suggests that it’s not just the long deserted beach, delicious seafood and beguiling solitude that brings guests back to one of the world’s best small luxury hotels. It’s the airconditioned beds as well.

We told you Barbuda was unique!
