Bahamas Mayaguana Island


Mayaguana is a popular stopover for yachtsmen on route to the Caribbean. The terrain is woody, the soil fertile and suited to agriculture. Farming and fishing are the chief occupations of its inhabitants. Typical scenes are homespun dwellings guarded by goats and an occasional cottage doing double duty as a "petty shop" (a small general store).

Getting around

Nearby settlements include:
Abraham’s Bay, Betsy Bay, and Pirate’s Well.

Inter-island Bahamas mailboats depart from Nassau and run weekly roundtrip to and from all islands.

Taxi service is available. Although metered rates vary by island, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

Rental cars are also available. You can use your home driver’s license for up to three months, but remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left.

Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.
