The Nature Reserve

The Salinas Nature Reserve will be the first national park in Long Island, Bahamas, encompassing 8,560 acres of coastal lagoons, beachfront, and mangrove forests. World class ecotourism, hands-on educational programming, and miles of hiking, kayak, and paddle boarding trails welcome travellers seeking authentic, off-the-grid experiences that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Sprawling turquoise waters are home to an incredible array of wildlife, and offer endless hours of discovery.

This environmentally-led model of development strives to usher in a new era of tourism for The Bahamas. As one living system, The Salinas is designed to support the ecology, local economy, and Long Island’s social fabric. The Nature Reserve will be designed, maintained, and operated in partnership with The Bahamas National Trust.
