Barbuda is an oasis of relaxation across virtually the entire shoreline, and nothing helps bring that sense of peace and tranquility in like a refreshing drink. Fortunately, you won't have to look far to find drinks along the beaches of Barbuda as plenty of bars are located by the shore.

    To get the most out of your holiday to Barbuda, you'll want to visit some of the local beach bars whether they simply offer drinks or can cook up some local food for you as well. Take a look at the 5 best beach bars in Barbuda.



    Enjoy a quaint beach bar

    Shack-A-Kai is located on a natural beach and features little more than a bar and a roof where you can find shade and a drink while embracing the beachfront atmosphere. You'll find beer and spirits here along with soft drinks if you or someone you're travelling with doesn't feel like drinking alcohol.

    The shack may be modest, but it's remarkably well-kept. You'll find it sturdy with plenty of seating available including bench seating away from the bar itself. It's all located on Princess Diana Beach, which can be found along the island's southern shore.

    Location: Unnamed Road, Antigua & Barbuda

    Open: Daily from 9 am to 6 pm


    Uncle Roddy’s Beach Bar and Grill

    Visit a solar powered beach bar

    Uncle Roddy’s Beach Bar and Grill is entirely solar powered, the first of its kind on Barbuda, and offers a wide selection of drinks and food. The beer selection features options both local and imported, but you'll also find several wines and spirits to enjoy.

    The food on offer here is amongst some of the best on the island thanks to its catch of the day specials. All ingredients here are caught right offshore, so you can count on freshness. Their lobster is particularly popular. You'll find it all along the island's southern shore.

    Location: Coral Group Bay, Antigua & Barbuda

    Open: Daily from 11 am to 10 pm

    Phone: +1 268-785-3268


    Byrons Café

    Check out a modest Codrington beach bar

    Byrons Café offers stunning drinks and food, but you'll find it situated in a remarkably small building that's smaller in total than a lot of bedrooms are. The drink selection is fairly robust for its size, and despite the small kitchen, the food options here are some of the best local favourites available.

    When you visit this bar, you'll find that all the seating is located outside. Some covered seating is available a few steps away from the cafe itself, but the immediate surroundings have bench seating open to the sky. You'll find it on the west side of Codrington by the lagoon.

    Location: J5RC+QGJ, Codrington, Antigua & Barbuda

    Open: Daily from 8 am to 11 pm

    Phone: +1 268-734-1893
