The most easterly island in the Bahamas, Mayaguana rests over 350 miles southeast of Nassau and over 500 miles off the coast of Florida. This illustrates how vast the Bahamas really is with Great Inagua even further away to the south. The island nation of the Turks and Caicos is 40 miles southeast and Acklins Island about the same distance to the west. While the island is very remote and has only a small population, it is large (24 miles long and 4 miles wide) and sits between two major international shipping channels, the Mayaguana and Caicos Passages. This location may lead to opportunities in the future for yachting and shipping facilities.
Mayaguana has a runway that was originally built for a U.S. Air Force missile tracking station, which has closed down. The population has struggled since then to create the jobs needed to keep young people on the island. That being said, the people of Mayaguana are very friendly in nature and appreciative of the tourists that visit. The coasts are dotted with lovely, pristine beaches and coves to explore and the eastern end of the island has a population of pink flamingos and native iguanas. The towns of Pirates Well, Betsy Bay and Abrahams Bay provide opportunities for lodging, dining, sightseeing and guide services. Fishing offshore is excellent and unique bone fishing opportunities exist where virtually no one goes.
