“At North Beach there is nothing, yet there is everything.”


Reuben, born and bred in Barbuda, is the founder and owner of North Beach, and is also your warm and friendly host. With a background as an engineer and a very talented cook, Reuben has combined his skills to build his long-term dream – a small slice of paradise for others.

He has been making dreams come true here since 1985, when he built the very first North Beach cottage. Since then he has worked with complete passion to create a wonderful, peaceful place for people to be themselves, forget their worries and relax.

Reuben has always wanted to share his love for North Beach with people who could benefit from this secluded and completely unique location. His vision is to give people a warm welcome and make sure that they feel part of something authentic and very special.

He has lived here all his life and has some incredible stories to tell, so feel free to sit down with him and ask anything you like about North Beach.


Matthieu has been a professional fishing guide for 20 years and spent thousands of hours in fresh and saltwater across the globe, in search of the most beautiful fish. His passion has come to North Beach to make sure you enjoy magical moments that remain with you forever.
