Egg Island (Bahamas)
Egg Island is an uninhabited island, officially an islet, comprising 800 m² [0.2 acres] in the Bahamas. It's so named because it is home to chickens owned by residents of other nearby islands who travel here to collect the eggs.
The island has a crescent shaped beach that is protected by a reef that protects the entire beach. The water behind the reef is generally less than 2 m [6 feet] deep making it a good place to swim or watch the sea life. Since the water is so shallow and well protected, it tends to be warmer than the surrounding sea.
