Anse-Dufour, Ile-a-Vache

It has a population of more than 10,000 people who live essentially of seafood, local crops, small commerce, and boat transportations. Despite the lack of infrastructures, this quaint Caribbean island offers natural beauty between white sand and light azure sea, green hills, dense mango foliage, plains, valleys and hillocks that stretch along the uneven western part.

 

Ile-a-Vache also bears a history of pirates including the infamous Captain Morgan, a British pirate who led several buccaneering expeditions across the Caribbean to attack Britain's enemies in order to protect their future prosperity. Henri Morgan operated many flagships, among them the “Oxford”, a 34-gun ship that had been given to him by England's King Charles II due to his military and naval prowess. During a voyage in the Caribbean with ten vessels to Ile-a-Vache (Cow Island), Henry Morgan's ship - apparently loaded with an important treasure - sank off the coast of Ile-a-Vache as a result of an explosion believed to have been ignited by a celebratory pig roast nearby Ferret Bay, a natural deepwater bay known for its safe anchoring for centuries.

 

Ferret bay served as a port for buccaneers in the Caribbean and particularly Henri Morgan whose name was given to an ecological tourist complex on Ile-a-vache, as it is believed he has lost his boat in this bay and was the only survivor.
