1100 miles south east of Miami, near
the eastern tip of the Caribbean
island chain. On the same latitude

the Tropic of Cancer, it is eternal
summer caressed by cooling
tradewinds. The average temperature

hibiscus and bougainvillea in bloom.
The island is 22.7 miles long, and
at its widest only 8 miles, but in
this stretch there are great varying
landscapes. The eastern end is dry,

rises to a height of 1,096 feet on

The beaches are unique, some quiet
coves, some, like Cane Bay, a world
renown dive site. Snorkeling is

high salt content of the Caribbean
Sea makes you more bouyant so
