Only a short amount of time has passed since Hurricane Irma battered beautiful Barbuda and only now are we learning of the true extent of the damage.
SN Travel has worked closely with the nation of Antigua and Barbuda for many years and has very strong links with the islands. We are devastated that this tiny paradise island has been so horrifically destroyed by the force of nature and wish to show our support in every way we possibly can to help rebuild the lives of the people of Barbuda and bring the island back to life.
