Top Reasons to Go to The Southern Out Islands
Stage a disappearing act: Discover your inner castaway on islands way off the trampled tourist track. Pink or white sand, calm azure coves, or rolling ocean waves—you'll have your pick.
Tell your own tall fishing tale: Whether deep-sea fishing past the Wall off southern Inagua or bonefishing in the crystal-clear shallows on Cat Island's east coast, your fish-capades will be ones to remember.
Explore historic lighthouses: Surrounded by treacherous shoals and reefs, the southern Out Islands have the country's most famous 19th-century lighthouses, most of which you can climb for stunning views.
Set sail: Sailing regattas are huge here at the gateway to the Caribbean. It's thrilling to watch the first boats come into view and race across the horizon in full sail.
