Ocean Ports of Call

Acklins Island - Bahamas Highlights:
Beaches, birdlife, Lucayan Indian sites
Acklins Island is one of a group of islands arranged along a large, shallow lagoon called the Bight of Acklins. It has great beaches for swimming, snorkelling and beach-combing. Nature is all around, including flamingos and vast numbers of seabirds. A sight of interest is the remote Castle Island Lighthouse at the southernmost point of Acklins Island.

Acklins is home to numerous Lucayan Indian sites. An ancient Lucayan Indian site, thought to be one of the largest Lucayan Indian settlements in the Bahamas, sits along Pompey Bay Beach, just south of Spring Point. Ten ancient Lucayan sites have been unearthed by National Geographic Society Archeologists in Samana Cay alone, which is northeast of Spring Point in Acklins. Plana Cays, also northeast of Spring Point, is a protected reserve for endangered great iguanas and the very rare estimated hutias (guinea pig like rodents), the only native mammal of The Bahamas.
