Princess Diana Beach

Barbuda Council names beach in honor of Princess Diana

Apr 21, 2011

Codrington, Barbuda - The world will soon discover one of the Caribbean’s best kept secrets -- The Barbuda Council announces that the stretch along the island’s unbroken miles of beach will be named to honor the memory of Princess Diana, who visited this unspoiled paradise on at least four occasions.

On July 1, Diana’s 50th birthday, the local council will officially name the shores alongside the former K-Club Hotel to honor the Princess’ legacy and her spirit of humility and sophistication.

Barbuda became a sanctuary for the Princess and she seemed to find solace in the beauty of the island and the hospitality of the people. We have been honoured to host the Princess and her family and it brought even more joy when she repeated her visits to our home.

It is our hope that the Princess Diana Beach will serve as a reminder of the hope and courage that is a significant part of Diana’s legacy.

A charity and commemorative stamp are being considered to honor the humanitarian spirit that defines the life work of Princess Diana.
