The Berry Islands

Fishing is a way of life for the people who live on The Berry Islands and for those who visit. These islands have served up record-breaking catches for fishermen hunting tuna, wahoo, king mackerel, and other prized game fish. Shaped by a group of 30 cays, mostly privately owned, the Berry Islands border the deep-ocean canyon known as the Tongue of the Ocean. Caverns, reefs, and dive sites can be found throughout the cays. About seven islands are inhabited. Bullock’s Harbour, the capital of Great Harbour Cay in the north, is the island chain’s main settlement.
