The Inaguas

Guest house in Matthew Town, Great Inagua, Bahamas

The Inaguas

The most southerly and most remote of the Out Islands, the Inaguas, with fewer than 1,200 inhabitants living on Great Inagua, are also the most sparsely populated. Almost all of the locals work for the Morton Salt Company. Very few tourists make it this far out. Those that do are in for a rare experience. The third largest of the islands, this is the Bahamas’ answer to the Galapagos Islands. Here is a land where wildlife still reigns over most of the rocky shorelines and uninhabited Little Inagua just to the north. This is not the place for the casual vacationer in search of lazy days in the sunshine, nightlife and full-service hotels. If you’re an outdoor adventurer, however, this is the place for you. You can walk for miles along the deserted, rocky coast (sandy beaches are few and far between) and spend long days bird-watching, fishing or bicycling. It’s not the easiest place to reach, either. You’ll need the services of a creative travel agent.
