Nature lovers will enjoy the island's famous Frigate Bird Sanctuary, the reefs offshore provide pristine snorkeling and are home to centuries of shipwrecks. The getaway-from-it-all factor? A solid 10. Aside from guesthouses, lodgings are mostly limited to a handful of upscale resorts. (How upscale? Well, Princess Diana was a frequent guest at one club.) If you haven't heard about Barbuda, it's probably because it's in a West Indian time warp, the way the much of the Caribbean was decades ago.
