Barbuda will defiantly be one of your favorite islands if your into nature and remoteness. This low island whose highest point is only 125 feet above the sea is similar to Anegada in the British Virgin islands if you have Bareboat chartered there. It is large, over half the size of Antigua with a mere 1600 inhabitants, who live-in and around the village of Codrington. Barbuda has many miles of brilliant turquoise shoal water that as you sail toward this mystical island you can with the right conditions see a blue-green reflection of the water in the clouds long before you see the land itself. During the right conditions you can anchor just about anywhere you wish.  Reefs lay to the south and North of the island Catamarans can make it into the northern reef protection and Monohulls will need to stay to the southern reefs due to their keel depth.

    Has so much history one could spend days at English harbor alone exploring Nelson's Dock Yard. Protected and safe anchorages are on every shore of Antigua as is the snorkeling and some of the worlds best beaches. No matter where you chose to go Antigua got what you want and need close at hand, Falmouth Harbour is more convenient for most yacht services and it attracts mega yachts but the hand full.  Many mega yachts you see on the cover of your favorite Yachting magazine are docked in Falmouth during the year at some point. English harbour is a very pretty and also is lined with mega yachts stern to where the square riggers were morred in their  time. Antigua race week is a great experience as you will see some amazing yachts racing around the island course.
