Day 5 we made a day trip to Barbuda. This was about 2 hours away by catamaran ferry. Barbuda is part of the same sovereign nation as Antigua.
I am not up on my hurricane history, and my guidebook is apparently more than 3 years old; so I was unaware that Barbuda was devastated in 2017 by Hurricane Irma. So it was a little bit bleak.
Nevertheless we visited a cave, boated right up to a large colony of frigate birds, had a delicious local lunch, and went to a beach, which is legally required. Above, a view from just inside the cave.
I am feeling more and more grateful I made this trip while it was still possible to go anywhere.
