Getting There -- The island is a 15-minute flight from Antigua's Bird Airport. Barbuda has two airfields: one at Codrington and the other a private facility, the Coco Point Airstrip, which is some 13km (8 miles) from Codrington at the Coco Point Lodge.

To reach Barbuda from Antigua, you can contact Winair (tel. 866/466-0410; www.fly-winair.com), a carrier that flies twice a day from Antigua's Bird Airport to Barbuda's Codrington Airport. The ride takes between 15 and 20 minutes one way. Round-trip passage costs around $104 per person, depending on restrictions.

Getting Around -- Many locals rent small four-wheel-drive Suzukis, which are the best way to get around the island. They meet incoming flights at Codrington Airport, and prices are negotiable. You'll need an Antiguan driver's license if you plan to drive.
