They say good things come in small packages, and truer words couldn’t be spoken about Acklins, a lesser known island that’s just 92 square miles and four miles across at its widest point. The island hugs the Bight of Acklins, a small but famous lagoon. When most people are researching dream fishing vacation packages, snorkeling trips in The Bahamas or an excuse to enjoy a Bahamas holiday, they often forget about the many opportunities Acklins Island has to offer when compared with other major tourist destinations throughout the Bahamas.

Although the population is scarce, with just over 400 residents, there is plenty to do on a Bahamas holiday on Acklins Island. Snorkeling trips in The Bahamas are not complete without a visit to Acklins. Searching for seclusion? Breathtaking beaches, unusual rock formations and scenic plant and animal life make Acklins Island a nature lover’s dream. An exotic location, Acklins is for the traveler seeking solace. In other words, you’ll be making your own adventures on this quiet island with rugged terrain and little development.

The charm of Acklins Island goes beyond the scenery, especially if you’re searching for a snorkeling trip or dream fishing vacation package. People come to Acklins for serious scuba diving and snorkeling, and even more serious fishing.
