4.8/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web
Frigate Bird Sanctuary remains a home to one of the largest colonies of frigate birds in the world. Watch dozens of rare birds from a boat tour, guided by a native Barbadian. The area also serves as a safe place for nesting pelicans, gulls, and terns. Locally called man-of-war thanks to its tendency to steal food from other species, the frigate bird is a fearless creature, so you can often approach it and observe from a short distance. If you visit with an authorized guide, make sure to book a day in advance, and try to make a quick stop at a nearby beach. A visit to Frigate Bird Sanctuary represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Barbuda trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.
