Partitioned by a breathtaking lagoon teeming with aquatic life, the pair of islands here offer sanctity and the opportunity to relish and enjoy some quality you-time. With miles of undisturbed beaches, you will find that your footprints are the only ones around the next day. 

The landscapes of both islands offer stunning walks in addition to unperturbed coral gardens and some impressive caves. As only around 400 people live here, there is no hustle and bustle, and almost no tourists. This provides you with the perfect environment to just unwind in complete serenity, or mingle with the locals over some chilled, tropical cocktails. 

Chartering around the lagoon you can take in the panoramic view of the secluded area and enjoy the islands exactly as they were found by Christopher Columbus. There is a dream-like ambience to this destination, so don't be surprised if you're suddenly lulled away by the breeze. 

Acklins and Crooked Island are extremely remote and not well known as a tourist hotspot. But don’t let their natural surroundings fool you. Both offer plenty of exciting activities for the adventurous visitor, such as pristine diving spots, deep-sea fishing, unchartered nature walks, and even paragliding if the weather permits. 

Crooked Island boasts sparsely populated settlements such as French Wells and Gun Point, which are reminiscent of early plantation lifestyles. There the folk live in the complete bliss of the nature that surrounds them and are extremely welcoming to travellers. Just over 350 people call Crooked Island home, making it a great place to explore your natural surroundings in peace.

Separated by a 1,000-square-mile lagoon known as the Bight of Acklins, both islands are a haven for bonefishing, snorkelling, and diving. Here you can expect to find miles of undisturbed sandy beaches, coral gardens, and limestone caves just waiting for you to explore. 

Be sure to visit Turtle Sound, one of the natural wonders of The Bahamas. It runs nine miles from the French Wells Channel to just behind some of the northern settlements. There you will discover winding coves of mangroves, as well as the marine and birdlife that are native only to that region.
