Barbuda: Planning Group Activities for Wedding Guests

Barbuda Things To DoAlthough Antigua and Barbuda are one nation, they are two separate islands, which means there are separate activities on Barbuda for your wedding guests.

To get from one island to the other it’s a 20 minute flight (usually leaving twice a day) or a 2 hour boat road.

Therefore, if your beach wedding is going to be on the the island of Barbuda, you’ll want to plan things to do there for your wedding guests!

Since Barbuda is still fairly undeveloped, which makes it so special, there aren’t many group activities besides relaxing. However, if your guests are staying in a resort on the island, the resort is sure to have things for them to do.

17-Mile Beach

The 17 mile pink sand beach is what Barbuda is most known for. It’s the perfect place for a beautiful long walk and a refreshing swim. If your wedding guests are looking for something romantic to do, they’ll enjoy this beach!

Coco Point and Palmetto Point are two other beautiful beaches to check out. Their famous pink sand attracts many travelers. You really feel like you’ve escaped reality when you’re on beaches like these.

Frigate Bird Sanctuary

Frigate Bird Sanctuary is one of the most popular attractions in Barbuda. It has one of the largest frigate bird colonies in the world. You can take a guided tour to learn all about it. To get to the sanctuary, you take a boat trip across the lagoon. Many travelers say it’s a “must see” if you’re in Barbuda!

The best time to go is during mating season, which is from October – December. However, you’ll still have an incredible experience no matter what time of the year you go. You’ll see over 170 different species of birds!

Diving and Snorkeling

Barbuda is a great place for diving or snorkeling, because off the coast you’ll find the remains of many shipwrecks. Palaster Reef is a recommended location for these activities!


The Caves at Two Foot Bay is another attraction for Barbuda wedding groups. The cave is 143 feet above sea level and provides a breathtaking view when you reach the top. It’s an easy walk, making is an activity for all ages!

If you’re looking for more places with stunning views of the island, Martello Tower is another popular spot. It’s a 56 foot tall tower on the south coast of the island.

Although there aren’t as many activities in Antigua and Barbuda as there are on other Caribbean islands, people visit this location mostly for their beautiful beaches. This is why it’s a great destination for a beach wedding.

You won’t find longer stretches of white sand on any other island in the area. You will enjoy the relaxation and peacefulness! It’s a very romantic place and your Barbuda wedding guests won’t want to leave.
