"Acklins is a lovely, unspoiled island located on the southern tip of The Bahamas. The bonefishing is world-class and there is an abundance of fresh seafood."

Acklins & Crooked Island

Known as two of the more remote islands, Acklins & Crooked Island are as natural as they were when The Bahamas was first discovered. Separated by a 1,000-square-mile lagoon known as the Bight of Acklins, both islands are a haven for bonefishing, snorkeling and diving. You’ll also find miles of undisturbed sandy beaches, coral gardens, limestone caves, magnificent cliffs and even remnants of slave and cotton plantations. It’s the perfect way to forget about the complexities of life. In short, Acklins & Crooked Island are The Bahamas’ definition of seclusion.

Discover more about Acklins & Crooked Island

Both Acklins and Crooked Island are extremely remote and not well known as tourist destinations. But don’t let their natural surroundings fool you. Both offer plenty of exciting activities for the adventurous visitor. Acklins Island is one of the least known and most preserved islands in The Bahamas. Which means its rustic landscape is ideal for vacationers looking for private getaways with outstanding secluded beaches and premier bonefishing. Crooked Island on the other hand is one of the best guarded secrets in The Bahamas. It boasts sparsely populated settlements such as French Wells and Gun Point, which are reminiscent of early plantation lifestyles. Just over 350 people call Crooked Island home, making it a great place to explore your natural surroundings in peace.
