When Princess Diana wanted to truly escape the world, she went to Barbuda. It was famously her favourite place to holiday, and one place in particular captured her heart: Coco Point Beach.
Regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, it is also one of the most secluded. Here, away from the relentless paparazzi, the Princess found peace. On July 1, 2011, on what would have been her 50th birthday, it was rechristened Princess Diana Beach.
Today, the beach is just as deserted and secluded. At certain times of the year, thousands of tiny pink shells wash up, giving the sand a royal, rosy blush.
