Explore Barbuda for all its beauty, including pink sandy beaches and indigenous animals.
What better way to take in the highlights of Antigua & Barbuda than by helicopter! The exhilaration of flying low over crystal clear waters, will be an experience you will never forget!
This breathtaking tour ascends over Antigua's fabulous beaches and as your flight heads north from the heliport for this 20 minute journey, across the Caribbean Sea to the awaiting island of Barbuda, you’ll experience the beauty of Antigua from the air.
Just 27 miles north of Antigua and 62 miles square, the island of Barbuda is roughly 14 miles long, by 8 miles wide. The highest point is only approximately 125 ft and the longest beach is 12 miles long. On arrival, you’ll witness a vista of white and pink sands, shimmering in the sun and being softly lapped by the tropical crystal-clear waters. The beaches appear pink, in some areas, where tiny seashells are washed up in broken fragments; seemingly endless and fabulous, stretching unbroken and unpopulated to the horizon.
Your helicopter will land on Low Bay Beach – a spectacular fourteen mile stretch of pink and white sand bordered on one side by the sparkling Caribbean Sea and on the other by the healing waters of the Codrington Lagoon. Whilst here, you’ll be able to relax on the beach, have a drink and enjoy a lunch prepared by local chef’s consisting of fresh Barbuda fish, chicken or lobster.
Barbuda is a haven for birdwatchers and you may be able to see Osprey’s, Whistling Ducks, Tropic Birds and the Barbuda Warbler - known locally as the Christmas Bird. However, the highlight has to be the magnificent Frigate Bird. Barbuda has one of the few breeding sanctuaries of the Frigate Bird, in the world and you can experience this almost unique place by taking a short boat ride accompanied by an experienced guide. There you will be able to see close up and at first hand these magnificent birds known locally as “man of war’ before returning to Low Bay to continue your Barbuda beach experience.
When it is time to leave, your return helicopter journey across the Caribbean Sea to Antigua is as spectacular as your outgoing flight! Sit back, relax and enjoy your return trip with breathtaking views!
