Antigua's sister isle, Barbuda, has once again been recognised for its unspoilt beaches.
According to travel website, Travel.AOL.com, Pink Beach, located in Barbuda, is considered one of the “Best Remote Beaches Around The World”. The website’s feature on ‘hidden beaches in warm weather destinations’ had this to say; "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."
"We are very pleased to receive this industry recognition," said CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James, who also noted that this particular beach had received numerous commendations in the past, such as placing amongst Condé Nast Traveller's listing of the World's Best Beaches.
"It proves beyond a doubt that our beaches are the unique selling proposition that attract visitors to select Antigua and Barbuda as their holiday destination. Our job is to make sure that everyone knows about the breathtaking beauty that nature has blessed us with, and that we combine this gift with unsurpassed hospitality that will make our visitors return time and time again."
Barbuda was the only Caribbean island named, amongst the 12 other worldwide destinations. Antigua and Barbuda offers 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, with a wide array of facilities and activities to suit the needs of any beach lover.
