About the island


Barbuda is linked with Antigua, its larger sister island. The island itself has a small community of only 1800 people, who mainly live in the village of Codrington.

Barbuda is famous for its wildlife not seen on other Caribbean islands, including deer and wild boar, land turtles and guinea fowl. Codrington Lagoon is home to the rare and magnificent Frigate Bird, which has a thriving colony of approximately 2500 birds, one of the largest in the world.

There is much to see on the island, from discovering the salt lakes and exploring caves, to swimming with the tropical shoals of fish and kayaking in the midday sun. Barbuda is island life at its best – slow, steady and seriously chilled.

A short boat ride away, through the mangroves and onto the headland is North Beach Island. Founded over 20 years (Link to the our story/history page) ago by our founder Reuben James, our island is as close to a tropical paradise as you will find in the Caribbean. North Beach is a unique place, untouched by tourism and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Our small dedicated team, including our island concierge – Douglas the Donkey, encompasses our island’s motto in everything they do: “too blessed to be stressed”.

It is the simplicity of island life that makes North Beach so special and wins the hearts of all who visit. It forces you into an immediate state of relaxation, ensuring you’ll never want to leave.

As Reuben so fondly says: “We have nothing, yet we have everything”.
