Attractions on Inagua

Inagua, which is comprised of both Great Inagua and Little Inagua, is the "land" of national parks.  183,740 acres of Great Inagua is designated as the Inagua National Park, while the entire 30 square miles of Little Inagua is a national park where feral donkeys run wild, numerous bird species proliferate, and herds of goats can be seen munching on the grass.  If nature isn't your thing, you won't find much to take advantage of here, outside of the quiet feel which allows visitors to feel like they've found a true getaway. 

 

 

The Inagua National Park is about one hours’ drive from Matthew Town and covers 183,740 acres of Great Inagua.
