What to see & do
The island and district of Acklins in the Bahamas belongs to the group of islands arranged along a large, shallow lagoon, the Bight of Acklins. Even with a little number of historical sites, the attractions in Acklins are all worth visiting. These include many Lucayan Indian sites, with one of the largest Lucayan Indian settlements in the country located along Pompey Bay Beach, south of Spring Point. In Samana Cay, northeast of Spring Point in Acklins, there are ten ancient Lucayan sites that were unearthed by National Geographic Society archaeologists. Also northeast of Spring Point is Plana Cays, which is a protected reserve for endangered great iguanas and the very rare estimated hutias, the only native mammals of the Bahamas. At the southernmost part of Acklins Island is Castle Island Lighthouse.

Within the other islands of the Bahamas on the other hand, with the exception of Grand Bahama, can be extremely limited. Travelling around the country by taxi is also an option although the ride can be expensive. These taxis can get its passengers from point A to point B, but expect a higher fare, that cannot be negotiated with.
