Mayaguana has some of the most beautiful, unspoiled coral reefs in The Bahamas. Visitors often express their amazement at the variety of fish they encounter, often camouflaged in the coral. The reefs and bays on either side of the island provide incredible snorkeling, regardless of wind direction. Northwest Point has great snorkeling off the beach and Pirate's Well Beach in some areas. You are likely to see coral heads, sand dollars and starfish, and a variety of other local species. Curtis Creek at North Beach is a natural aquarium for fish and a habitat for green turtles which are just as fascinating viewed from a canoe or boating tour. The creek is also a great jumping off point for canoeing/kayaking to neighboring cays.
