Crooked Island and Acklins Island are about 223 miles southeast of Nassau/Paradise Island. Together, the two islands form an area of approximately 200 square miles in length.
American Loyalists first settled here in 1783, bringing with them slaves and money to start a short-lived cotton industry. In the 1820’s plantations were destroyed by blight, ruining the island’s economy. Today the local economy is derived from fishing and farming.
Visitors will find truly memorable bonefishing, deepsea fishing,
sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing. If you love being surrounded by tropical birds, rolling hills, a coastline with hidden coves, and colorful villages, charter a boat with Taylor’d Yacht Charters and add Acklins/Crooked Island to your vacation plans. 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.
