The Inaguas

General Information

Creating a remote southern border for the Bahamas, Great Inagua lies more than 350 miles from Nassau, and is one of the least-visited Out Islands despite its three prime claims to fame: huge flaming-pink flamingoes, giant green turtles, and the world's second-largest solar evaporation works at the Morton Salt Company complex.

To visit these sights on this third-largest Bahamian isle means a stay in the 40-by-20-mile island's sole settlement, Matthew Town—which is, by itself, a sight to see. On a good day, the hazy bulk of Cuba to the southwest is just visible from the observation platform of the Matthew Town lighthouse.
