Mayaguana is the most easterly island and district of the Bahamas. It is one of only a few Bahamian islands which retain their Lucayan names. The population of Mayaguana in the 2000 census was 259 and is currently about 312. It has an area of about 110 square miles (280 km2). About 60 miles (97 km) north of Inagua and 350 miles (560 km) south of the capital of Nassau, Mayaguana is considered the halfway point between South Florida and Puerto Rico and is about 450 nautical miles off Palm Beach, Florida. It is a popular stopover for yachtsmen on a direct route to the Caribbean. Wikipedia:Mayaguana
