Beaches on Inagua

There is hardly a beach that surrounds Inagua that wouldn't be recommended to visitors for different reasons.  None of them are ever crowded and more are secluded, perfect for picnicking, shelling, or swimming.  The beaches along the south and east shores are especially loved, and if you're lucky you may even encounter a hawksbill turtle, also on a swim.

You will discover a large selection of beaches to consider on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, if some of the people in your group enjoy this relaxing pastime. You can click on specific beach names for a detailed guide to that section of the coast.

A beach scene where snorkeling is popular is North West Point Beach. North West Beach stands out for the honeycomb rocks that appear in the water, acting as stepping stones away from the shore. The beach itself is a long stretch of beige colored sand and features cool, bright blue waters.

Another location that beach-goers can consider is Farquharson Beach. This beach is of smooth, white sands right along the shore, but has a few dunes where the tide doesn't reach. The vibrant blues of the water invite visitors in, but sunbathing is actually the most popular activity here.

The table right below summarizes a few details regarding the beaches found on the island.
