Amazing, the beauty of the birds. The guide explained the history of the birds and stopped any time we wanted to take a photo

“Unbelievable! Amazing! Highly Recommend!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I took a cruise to Barbuda for a day in September 2013 and was completely blown away by the pristine pink beaches and frigate bird sanctuary! This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Not only were there thousands of birds, but thousands of unique jellyfish floating along the water too! Beautiful pristine blue ocean and perfect weather. Amazing! Highly recommend that you take a trip to this sanctuary while you are visiting the island.

“Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

So many impressive displays in one area. Many birds circling above and showing their puffed red chests to attract the females. We really felt for the ones who hadn't got a mate as it was near the end of the season.

“Must do if in Antigua or Barbuda!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

I am not normally interested in birds but this is a must do. You travel out to the nesting trees on boats - there is no land, you have to complete the tour in small boats. Our tour guide was excellent and shared a lot of interesting information. You come within inches of the birds. It is really magnificent to see them up close, with wing spans of over 6ft it's definitely not one to miss!
