Beach + Island

Hidden Beaches

Spread Your Towel: Pink Beach, Barbuda, Antigua and Barbuda

Shore lines: Yachtsmen and day-trippers to Antigua's sister island usually get no further than the beach at Low Bay, on the northwest coast of Barbuda. Low Bay is pretty enough, and it's a convenient starting point for a visit to what is one of the world's largest frigate bird sanctuaries—if the smell of bird poop is what you've come to the Caribbean for. But the real beauty on the island is Pink Beach. Essentially one huge sandbar, this flamingo-hued swath extends eight miles from Palmetto Point towards Spanish Point, at the southern end. About the only people who stroll Pink Beach are guests from the handful of small hotels that sit on it.

Best Bunk: How could you not feel special at a hotel whose price includes being flown into its private airstrip? Even better, Coco Point Lodge, with both 10 lodge rooms and six beachfront cottages, is on its own 164-acre peninsula, which means you've got its two miles of beach pretty much to yourselves.
