The northernmost island in The Bahamas, Walker's Cay is fringed by its own barrier reef. The stunning coral formations and surrounding marine environs host majestic schools of pompano and amberjack, large marine predators such as sharks and barracudas, multitudes of colorful tropical fish, turtles and eagle rays.

Although less than 10 square miles (approximately 3,800 acres), the Walker's Cay National Park makes important contributions to biodiversity and to the tourism industry of the island, highlighting the viability of non-consumptive use of marine resources to the economy.
