Interactive Activity Map
The picturesque, low-lying island measures 27 miles long and six miles across at its widest point. Gently undulating stands of lignum vitae (the official tree of The Bahamas) and low-growing hardwood forests blanket the island, encircled by mahogany and black mangrove flats and sugar-white sandbars. The jewel-hued Atlantic waters surrounding Mayaguana are home to miles of dazzling coral reef, and abundant tropical fish, conch, and sea turtles. Use the interactive map above to explore this glorious gem.
