Experience an Adventure or Two at Barbuda's Lighthouse Bay Resort

Enjoy the Lovely Pink and White Sand Beaches, but Also Add on an Excursion or Two When You Visit This Exclusive Resort

LOW BAY, BARBUDA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) -  Beautiful, uncrowded beaches with soft sand and stunning water views make for the perfect relaxing getaway at the Lighthouse Bay Resort on Barbuda. But this intimate, exclusive resort also offers activities and excursions that can add a bit of adrenaline to your getaway, contribute to your health and well being, or even teach a thing or two about the area's local historic attractions.

Nestled on a narrow strip of unspoiled natural land between the Caribbean Sea and a shallow lagoon, Lighthouse Bay Resort is an exclusive, intimate resort that combines a peaceful ambiance with a beautiful secluded location. Here you can walk along 17 miles of pink-and-white sand beach and watch the sunset into the Caribbean while gentle waves wash up on shore. Guests can also experience

  • Frigate Bird Sanctuary: Visit one of the Caribbean's largest nesting colonies of magnificent frigate birds during your stay. Reachable only by boat, the Frigate Bird Sanctuary is home to more than 5,000 birds, also known as "man o war" bird.

  • In-Room or Beachfront Spa Services: Let our trained spa therapists ease stress-induced knots in your tired muscles with a full-body massage or opt for a heavenly body scrub that pampers your overworked feet.

  • Horseback Riding: Feel the wind in your hair as you trot down the miles of pink and white sand beach on a beautiful horse.

  • Game Hunting: Pit your skills against the indigenous wildlife found on Barbuda, like deer or boar. (Seasonal availability.)

  • Darby's Sink Hole: Explore The Sink Hole, one of the Caribbean's great wonders, located on the northern side of Barbuda at the Darby Cave. Some 400 feet long and 85 feet deep, the sinkhole is known for its lush, tropical vegetation.

  • Sites of Interest: Visit Spanish Point -- so named for a sunken Spanish ship lost in the area in 1695 -- or tour Martello Tower -- a fort once used as a look-out along the country's south coast -- and learn a bit of Barbuda history.

  • Water Activities: Complimentary kayaks, snorkeling equipment and a hobie cat are available for guests on property. Scuba diving trips to local attractions are also available.

Lighthouse Bay Resort showcases nine rooms, with stunning views of the clear-blue Caribbean waters to the suite's front and the blue-green waters of a lagoon to the rear. The suites -- elegantly decorated with dark, mahogany woods and luxurious furnishings -- feature a separate, spacious bath with blue bahia granite counters and a marble-lined, walk-in shower. If you must, stay connected with complimentary direct-dial, international calling, Wi-Fi, an in-room laptop, flat-screen TV with satellite reception or iPod-compatible surround-sound stereo.
