The Frigate Bird Sanctuary is the largest bird Sanctuary in the entire Caribbean.
It is located in the island’s northwestern lagoon and is accessible only by boat. The sanctuary contains over 170 species of birds and is home to over 5,000 frigate birds. Fregata magnificens, the most aerial of water birds, possesses the largest wingspan (four to five feet) in proportion to its body size of any bird in the world. The male frigate is marked by its red throat pouch, which it can inflates as part of its courtship behavior and as a defensive display. Courting takes place in the fall, and chicks hatch late in the year.
Tours of the Lagoon are available on a daily basis.
