Inagua is actually two islands Little and Great Inagua, together covering 645 miles. The Inaguas are at the most southern tip of The Islands Of The Bahamas, just less than 60 miles from the coasts of Cuba and Haiti.

Great Inagua is home to the Inagua National Park, which makes up almost half the island. The park is home to more than 80,000 flamingos and other exotic birds such as Bahama parrots, pelicans, herons, egrets and Bahama pintail ducks.

The island's capital and only harbour is Matthew Town, is where the Morton Salt Company’s main facility can be found, producing one million tonnes of sea salt a year - the second largest solar saline operation in North America and Inagua's main industry.

The neighbouring Little Inagua is a mere five miles to the northeast and is uninhabited, occupied only by herds of wild donkeys, goats and a wide variety of birdlife, including a rare species of heron. The island is 30 sq miles and is protected by a reef that prevents boats from coming too close.
