The Location of the District of Moore's Island

Moore's Island is one of the districts of the Bahamas, on the Abaco Islands.

Moore's Island is one of the little cays off the main land of Abaco. It is approximately 7 miles (11 km) long and 3.5 miles (5.6 km) wide and approximately 28 miles (45 km) from Great Abaco. It has two settlements, Hard Bargain which is the capital and the other settlement is the Bight.

To arrive to Moore's Island by boat traveling from Sandy Point one passes Gorda Cay (Castaway Cay); Long Rock can be passed on either side, staying offshore in deep waters because inland passage is too risky. Then one passes south Channel Cay (Stake Cay) which has a light tower. After passing Channel Cay a direct approach is taken 6 feet (1.8 m) to the north end of Moore's Island to locate Hard Bargain.
