We decided to anchor on the west side of Barbuda in Low Bay. This is home to the famous 11 mile long beach. We dropped anchor at 15:45.
It's a bit weird as the beach runs north to south and with easterly trades, you simply pull straight into the beach and anchor. It's 16-13 feet nearly all the way into the beach so it seems like you are literally beaching your boat when anchoring. We felt much like a powerboat pulling straight into the beach and chucking the anchor out. Weird. There are approximately 15 other yachts but with 11 miles, there is plenty of room.
*Kala, you are going to LOVE running on this beach. I hope your parents on vs Terrapin take you here.
