It’s my job to welcome thousands of yachting visitors to our shores every year and I do so with great warmth and friendliness.
This beach is located 10 miles east of Abraham's Bay, and is a perfect spot to go "crabbing." That means hunting for land crabs that live in the bushes and crevices within the limestone rocks, but go walking late at night. The meat is used in a variety of local dishes.
Booby Cay lies to the east of mainland Mayaguana and gets its name from the flock of brown boobies that call it home. It is also a habitat for small rock iguanas and descendants of wild goats left behind by early settlers.
The hutia is a plump, brown, rabbit-sized member of the rodent family that was thought to be extinct until the 1960s. They are nocturnal and are the only land mammal native to The Bahamas.
Mayaguana has some of the most picturesque sandy beaches in The Bahamas, with unbelievable aquamarine water. They are quiet, perfect for picnicking, sunbathing, shelling and snorkeling. Coral heads, sand dollars, and starfish can be found just offshore.
