General Information

Mayaguana has about 250 inhabitants and is 40 km long. Villages like Pirates Well, Abrahams Bay and Betsy Bay will leave an impression you will never forget. An island where everyone is like "family". Abandoned beaches with maybe the best bonefishing there is because of the many flats. A fine Island for Do-It-Yourself Bonefishing! Drive a car across the island to find new flats or go out with the canoe into an area like Curtis creek.

Fishing Information

Mayaguana Bahamas is perhaps the most beautiful Bonefish destination in the world for DIY saltwater fly fishing in an adventurous and affordable way with nature, tranquility and space.

Mayaguana is an island with many flats where many big bones can be found (up to 15 pounds) and is an excellent area for popper fishing for Barracuda and Jacks. Tarpon and Permits can also be found on some flats.

There are no skiffs on Mayaguana so most fishing is done wading. There is a canoe you can use which gives you the opportunity to cross channels or fish in a little deeper water. The majority of the flats can be fished just wading.


Mayaguana can be fished most months of the year but the best months are april, may and june. The summer months can also be very good but if it gets to hot the bonefish will head to deeper water. With the right tide and weather you can still catch some very nice fish though. After the summer, when the temperature goes down again the fishing gets better. November is another good period but has a bit of a risk with cold fronts.
