Escape to Barbuda's pink beach

NY International Travel Examiner "Not many people go to Barbuda; in fact, not many people know much about the little leeward island. It’s out of the way and extremely quiet, but yet accessible to those who make the effort. The fine, white beach with pink specks stretches for 11 unbroken miles. This unspoiled, low island is yet another destination purely for escapism and perfect for pondering. Unwinding is a pastime here and entertainment is found in hiking and scuba discoveries. For people who appreciate solitude, Barbuda is a marriage made in heaven.

To say Barbuda is remote and laid back is an understatement. There are three arrival options: air, ferry or sail. The quickest and easiest is a scheduled charter flight on Carib Aviation, which has daily 20 minute flights from Antigua -- Barbuda’s sister island. The second option is Barbuda Express, a catamaran ferry service, which makes the three- hour trip seven days a week. Last, but not least, arrive on a private or chartered sailboat."
