Acklins & Crooked Island

Known as two of the more remote islands, Acklins & Crooked Island are almost as natural as they were when The Bahamas was first discovered. Separated by a 500-square-mile lagoon known as the Bight of Acklins, both islands are a haven for boating, 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.

These islands are remote and not well known as tourist destinations. They are prized instead for their natural surroundings, but also offer plenty of exciting activities for the adventurous visitor. Acklins is one of the least known and most preserved islands in The Bahamas. 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. Long Cay, their tiny sister island, was originally called “Fortune Island” by Christopher Columbus. Once a major trading post, it is now just a sleepy town with few residents. Visitors here will discover that they can explore their natural surroundings in absolute peace, and enjoy real tranquility.
