Île à Vache, an island just off the southwest coast of Haiti 30 minutes from the town of Les Cayes, is a true treasure. Just 3.2 km. wide and 13 km. long, it is a virtually undeveloped place with some 10,000 inhabitants, more than 20 beaches, a landscape of mountains and mangrove forests, an artisanal fishing economy and a history
that includes hosting Sir Henry Morgan, one of piracy’s most successful practitioners. Reefs and shipwrecks line the waters offshore.
