Franko Maps, Long Island Bahamas Fish ID-Card
Product OverviewLong Island, The Bahamas The Most Scenic Island in The Bahamas.
Franko's Long Island Mini-Map and Fish Card Side 1: From the small image to the left you can see that Long Island is about 80 miles long (129km), but is less than four miles wide (6.5km). The Tropic of Cancer runs right through the north third of Long Island. An ancient, petrified coral reef common to the entire Bahamas archipelago gives the island two very different coasts: The windward side is where the cliffs and caves of the east Long Island coast are exposed to the crashing Atlantic; The leeward side is where soft, sandy beaches slope into the turquoise Bahamas Bank.
Long Island is thus one of the most picturesque islands in all of The Bahamas. You can image from looking at this tiny map that this is a just a small island, but in reality it would take you hours to drive its length. It covers 173 square miles (278.5km)! When you do drive the length of Long Island you find the terrain ranges widely throughout the island, including white flat expanses from which salt is extracted, to swamplands and marshes, to lovely beaches. The beaches are steeply sloping in the north and low and flat in the south. You will only encounter small villages in your Long Island journey, as the entire island population is less than 4,000. It is interesting to know that Long Island's original inhabitants come from 14 slave plantations, from Roses" in the South to Burnt Ground" in the North. Descendants of African slaves and freed slaves were brought to the island by British ships following the abolition of slavery. Along your Long Island journey you will see farms. Farming was once the mainstay of the Long Island economy, however, a number of hurricanes in the late 1920s and early 1930s, together with the Great Depression, devastated the area and most of the islanders fled to the United States to find a new life. These days farming is once again a mainstay living at Long Island and it is the leading livestock-rearing island in The Bahamas for sheep, goats and pigs. You will also see farmers raising corn, peas, bananas, pineapples and other crops through pothole farming utilizing the fertile topsoil that gathers within holes in the ancient coral limestone.
