anchorages on Barbuda
There are also anchorages at Low Bay (pic left) on the west of the island where you will see the closed Lighthouse Hotel in front of you. From here you will need to call a boat (sea taxi) to get across the Lagoon into the village or carry your dinghy over the sand. Please note that it is forbidden to use your own dinghy to visit the Frigate bird sanctuary from here.
Some boats also come to River Wharf (pic right) which has recently been improved for mooring but there isn't much space to get in and out here as it is the harbour used by the ferry and by cargo boats, but it is nearer to the village.
A new mooring at Uncle Roddy's has been marked out by buoys to assist those who want to arrive and leave from Coral Group - call him for details.
Contact any of the land or sea taxi operators to meet your boat, they are familiar with the needs of visiting yachts and can carry you to all the essential services quickly. Their prices are set by the Barbuda Council and you can ask to see a copy of these rates if you wish. Most things you need in the way of everyday items can be bought in the village and can be found on the shopping page or on the business page. Although Barbuda can be very expensive as we have to import nearly everything ourselves, we really appreciate your visits to support our shops and services. We ask you to contact the waste disposal experts to get rid of your rubbish if necessary.
