With an area of 610 acres, the island is approximately 2.5 miles long with a central ridge extending along the length of the island creating gently rolling hills with Norman Hill the highest point on the island at 427 feet above sea level. The coast line comprises a number of bays and offshore reefs providing excellent snorkeling and diving within proximity to the island. The Bight is one of the most protected anchorages in the region although Soldier Bay, Benures Bay and Money Bay provide secluded anchorages given the right conditions. Treasure Point, at the southern entrance to The Bight, comprises a rocky headland along which the famous caves can be found at the base of the cliffs allowing access to snorkelers.
The U.S. dollar (USD) is the official currency. Traveler's checks and credit cards are also widely accepted.
